    Cambridge Analytica and Data Privacy, Alexander Nix Testimony

    Former Cambridge Analytica CEO Alexander Nix appeared before a British parliamentary committee for a second time to answer questions about the company’s alleged data privacy practices and relationship with Facebook. Much of the hearing focused on testimony given by Cambridge Analytica whistleblower Christopher Wylie, who in previous testimony claimed the company played a role in the 2016 Brexit referendum and shared private user data. Mr. Nix denied those claims and said he felt “victimized” by the allegations. Members asked Mr. Nix to clarify statements he made during a previous appearance before the committee following new media reports alleging Cambridge Analytica played a role in influencing the outcome of the elections. One undercover investigative report by the U.K.'s Channel 4 that aired in March 2018 showed Mr. Nix discussing bribery and entrapment of politicians. He told the committee the video was “heavily edited.”

    C-SPAN did no cover Mr. Nix’s first appearance.
