Brittany Kaiser calls for Facebook political ad ban at Web Summit

Former Cambridge Analytica employee Brittany Kaiser, recognisable to many as the unlikely star of the Netflix documentary The Great Hack, has appeared at Web Summit in Lisbon. In an interview with the BBC, Ms Kaiser said she wanted to see political advertising on Facebook banned. "It is sad that we have to ban all forms of political advertising to stop people being manipulated. But it has to be done," she added.
