18th November 2018 – Reporting in New Yorker and Guardian and Open Democracy

Delighted to be able to share this upcoming reporting on my latest submission to the Fake News Inquiry, in which I am revealing the earliest planning of the LeaveEU campaign and links to Steve Bannon, Trump’s former Chief Strategist. Great reporting here from Mark Townsend and Carole Cadwalladr in The Guardian who have done a lot of leg work on these topics too ‘Emails reveal Arron Banks’ links to Steve Bannon in quest for campaign cash’. The submission draws on my academic research and contains preliminary analysis of emails and interviews and will be published by the inquiry tomorrow. There is also this wonderful piece in the New Yorker from Jane Mayer which beautifully conveys how important this is for an American audience – ‘New Evidence Emerges of Steve Bannon and Cambridge Analytica’s Role in Brexit’. There was also a third piece in Open Democracy who have done a lot of previous work revealing emails from LeaveEU campaign, read that here.
