A data firm tied to the Trump campaign is trying to prevent an undercover report that shows the firm’s CEO Alexander Nix speaking candidly about the firm’s practices from airing, The Hill reported Sunday citing the Financial Times.
According to the publication, Cambridge Analytica, which helped propel Donald Trump to the presidency, is working to stop a new documentary which features Reporters for Channel 4 posing as prospective clients and secretly filmed a number of meetings with the firm.
The reporters conducted a series of undercover interviews, including with CEO Alexander Nix, reports the Financial Times.
The company, which has been banned from Facebook after misusing user data, has been the subject of a New York Times report that says it lied about having business relations with Russia, having actually worked with Russians to target American voters as far back as 2014.
The documentary is slated to air this week, according to the report.
