Social media’s impact on issues ranging from the democratic process to terrorist recruitment is a subject we’ve covered in great detail on SOFREP Radio. That’s why we were excited to bring on P.W. Singer, co-author of “LikeWar: The Weaponization of Social Media” written with Emerson T. Brooking, a best-selling book that goes in-depth on this very subject. Singer is also a strategist and senior fellow at New America. We get into Russia’s hand in the election of Donald Trump through propaganda spread on Facebook, as well as the de-platforming of vocal figures in conspiracy theory movement. Much scarier than these issues however, is the future of technology that you’ll hear us get into, where videos of fake events will become the norm much like the Photoshopping of images. There are no easy answers in this world of “fake news,” which is why you’ll hear some difference of opinion on the subject from us. If this is a topic you’re interested in, we hope you pick up “Likewar.”
