Recently I took the time to read Donald Trump Jr. book “Triggered”. The book gives a unique insight to the politics of social media and socio-political factors. This include topics on “shadow banning” and the risk of putting your political belief system on display. What I enjoyed mostly was the true perspective of being anything but a liberal in media. There is no doubt a bias that comes not only from Hollywood but also social media platforms such as Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. Trump Jr. captures this well in the book. He also provides some insight into what he considers the shift in the Democratic Party in the chapter titled “Not Your Grandfather’s Democratic Party. I would definitely recommend giving it a read if you want to get a brief glimpse into many of the tactics utilized by the Trump family to shine a bright light on the bias of these media platforms. He also provides some night into the downside of exclusion in the chapter “A Deadly Form of Hate”. It is an easy read and with some thought can provide a blueprint of sorts into what fuels many of the strategic social moves that could shape our political landscape for a time to come.
The book is available for purchase on Amazon or on Audio books here:
