"I applied for a writer job at Palantir," a California journalist tells Front! "They specialize in using artificial intelligence to analyze data, something like that. My [Republican friend] works there. I have a few tidbits from the hiring process—they are sort of menacing, in retrospect." It's apparently a tough place to get a job.
The Facebook/CIA-funded Silicon Valley startup denies that its "world's leading intelligence infrastructure platform" called Prism is the same wholesale data-mining operation called Prism that's identified in National Security Agency documents. But nobody's going to believe that, even if it winds up being vaguely "true" thanks to a paper trail or technicality. Palantir is in the business of selling your data to the people who want it most and will pay the most to get it: The Government.
