Cambridge Analytica whistleblower regrets taking part in the project

0

NEW YORK (AP) — The whistleblower at the center of allegations that a U.K.-based company improperly used the personal data of some 50 million Facebook users to help Donald Trump win the 2016 presidential election has expressed regret for having taken part in the project.

Chris Wylie on Tuesday told a packed audience at the Frontline Club, a media organization in London, that he is sorry he had worked for Cambridge Analytica.

When asked if he would compare himself to other whistleblowers, such as Daniel Ellsberg or Edward Snowden, Wylie demurred, saying his decision to come forward was more about contrition.
