MSM should use Cambridge Analytica/Emerdata to expose CA's re-branding effort. I haven't heard

them use Emerdata once, even in the Alexander Nix story from last night. WE know why they did the name change, but most people wouldn't.

1. More on Emerdata from the UK

Though Cambridge Analytica said it is pulling the plug in the US and UK, there is already some indication that the outfit which has a non-trivial organizational structure is more or less just going to rebrand under a different banner.

The UK's official registrar of businesses and organizations, Companies House, lists an active company called Emerdata Limited, headquartered at the same offices as SCL Elections and run by much of the same management and investors as Cambridge Analytica. It even describes itself as a "data processing, hosting and related activities" organization.

For instance, Dr Alexander Taylor was appointed a director of Emerdata on March 28. That's Cambridge Analytica's acting CEO and data wizard Dr Alexander Taylor. Julian Wheatland is an Emerdata director who is also a director within the SCL network of organizations.

Jennifer and Rebekah Mercer are directors of Emerdata, and are the daughters of ultra-wealthy businessman Robert Mercer who created and bankrolled Cambridge Analytica. Billionaire Bob has given tens of millions of dollars to rightwing political efforts. Jennifer and Rebekah also had a hand in Cambridge Anal.

Emerdata was founded in mid-2017, but has been rather active since Cambridge Analytica hit the headlines earlier this year, including official filings as recent as yesterday.

3. Agreed, though someone should tell NBC ! Early MJ just said "now defunct Cambridge Analytica". It's

a dreadful piece of journalism to let them skip off like this.
