  1. Compare the language describing Trump — “…Cambridge Analytica, hired by the Trump campaign, got its hands on data from 50 million Facebook users without their permission…” with the one describing Obama “Data analytics played a lesser-known role in President Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign, which assigned potential voters scores based on the likelihood that they would vote, and then, if they would vote for Obama, guided by surveys taken in battleground states.”

    If you believe the article, then both campaigns appear to have done the same thing, but one came off as a Satan and another one as a Saint.
