The New Media
An interesting article at The New York Times. The new billionaires and their growing control over the media. By now I hope there is not one person left on the planet who thinks journalists pass through some magical magnetic field that strips them of all biases and agendas. By now I hope we know that media is, and likely always has been, biased. What is happening now, however, is a new spin on the old Hearst 'kill Kane/puff Graham' power that older media moguls once wielded. It's an interesting take, though the piece is not nearly as concerned as I would think a major media outlet like the Times would logically be. Which makes you wonder. Don't think I don't.
