What's galling is that people get paid oodles of money to destroy journalism companies and then complain that it's all the internets fault. There are actually people who know how these new fangled interwebs work, and I don't mean the ones who are usually asked to give TED talks. To be fair, I have never watched a TED talk.
Maybe it was good that the journalists didn't sully their beautiful minds understanding how the business side worked. It was bad that the business side didn't either.
