Law & Crime reports:
Cambridge Analytica is threatening legal action against journalists who report unfavorable information regarding the controversial big data-mining firm. Perhaps the embattled firm is frightened by the swelling amount of attention due to Mark Zuckerberg‘s two days worth of congressional testimony.
In any event, Cambridge Analytica has shifted its denial strategy to issuing vague threats of litigation in the general direction of journalists. But that strategy is not likely to shift attention away from their behavior or accrue to the firm’s benefit whatsoever.
We have instructed our lawyers to send letters to news media who have been covering this story, advising them not to repeat false and unfounded allegations as fact.
