Cambridge Analytica Whistleblower Says U.S. is Heading in Same Direction as China With Privacy

The Infinite Brief
Online privacy in the U.S. is heading in the “same direction” as China, Cambridge Analytica whistleblower Christopher Wylie said.

“Just because it’s not the state doesn’t mean that there isn’t harmful impacts that could come if you have one or two large companies monitoring or tracking everything you do,” he said.

China’s regulation of the internet is the most severe in the world, according to a 2018 report from nonprofit Freedom House. In addition to controlling its own citizens’ data, China also is “providing like-minded governments with technology and training that enable them to control their own citizens,” Freedom House wrote.
