Media outlets have only just begun digging up all the dirt buried in the so-called Uber files. Gathered by The Guardian, the more than 124,000 confidential files reportedly show precisely how Uber’s greed drove unethical executive decision-making during the ridesharing app’s global expansion.
Kicking off a series of reports from various outlets, The Guardian did a deep dive into private communications that form the majority of the data leak. That cache of 83,000 emails, iMessages, and WhatsApp messages allegedly reveals “the inside story” of how Uber spent five years evading police while imperiling driver safety, attacking rivals, secretly wooing officials with financial incentives, and brazenly disregarding laws in pursuit of market dominance.
Acknowledging misdeeds that occurred between 2013 and 2017, all Uber has to say now is: Let’s leave the past in the past.
