- Eye Opening
As past editor of The New Republic, Franklin Foer writes about Silicon Valley’s threat to the media and democracy from the front lines of a lost war. His perspective causes him to occasionally overstate his case. Foer raises an urgent warning: Humanity sits poised on an abyss. In amassing near-monopoly control over information, Amazon, Apple, Google and Facebook have become history’s greatest gatekeepers. They have no restraint about manipulating government, politics, business or individual thought.
