Unfreedom of the Press is not just another book about the press. Levin shows how those entrusted with news reporting today are destroying freedom of the press from within: “not government oppression or suppression”, he writes, but self-censorship, groupthink, bias by omission, and passing off opinion, propaganda, pseudo-events, and outright lies as news.

This book was a absolutely amazing! It sheds light on the crooked media bias that’s been growing for decades and now come into full bloom. It’s a easy read and full of facts that are well sourced. Give this book to any family or friends that are teetering on how to view the media and the Trump administration.

In a world of self-driving cars and big data, smart algorithms and Siri, we know that artificial intelligence is getting smarter every day. Though all these nifty devices and programs might make our lives easier, they're also well on their way to making "good" jobs obsolete. A computer winning Jeopardy might seem like a trivial, if impressive, feat, but the same technology is making paralegals redundant as it undertakes electronic discovery, and is soon to do the same for radiologists.

It’s full of left wing ideas and promotes ideas such as climate change and income inequality and reaganomics as reasons why there might be displacement in the workforce in the future. Was disappointed in this read.
