More boo hooing how the Big Tech meany brought progress to the little people. Legacy media, please grow up and get with the times.

Boo hoo!

News Corp is all sad and blue because their model of doing journalism is archaic.

The business of news was hurting long before Big Tech. I covered that business when Big Tech wasn’t big, but were the new kids on the block making the most out of technological progress, while the old geezers of legacy media jawed around about how great they were and didn’t keep up with the times.

That is on journalism. Not Big Tech. That is like the horse and buggy driver railing against cars.

You snooze, you lose.

You had people like me sound the alarm way back then, but as journalism never respects a woman’s knowledge, they thought — seriously — that this whole Internet thing was a fad.

As in, people will get tired of the news freedoms Big Tech brings and come back to being told what to think.

The business is corrupt beyond repair. Their hubris blinds them to the obvious.

So they had this coming, and…

Traditional Media wants more scrutiny over their victors? You don't say!

Oh, here we go again — self-serving propaganda to fool the little people.

As if traditional media doesn’t spy on people and track them with cookies.

They do. So let’s not pretend.

Legacy media is just pouty because their own hubris destroyed their own industry, and they think taming Big Tech will magically turn the tide to their own favour. Don’t bank on it. The wavelengths of the old guard and the world are not in sync anymore.

They couldn’t stop Trump. They won’t stop Big Tech.

And the world spins merrily along without them…

Memo to the journalism industry: Even if Big Tech were to disappear tomorrow, your fortunes will not change.

Big Tech is being attacked, but journalists should not be celebrating.

People used the horse and buggy until cars were invented — they never went back.

The Internet has opened new paths of thinking, and you will no longer have people accept the fact that someone else will have the sole control of a public forum.

The Internet and Big Tech could vanish right now — and something more advanced would take its place in a heartbeat because there is a need to fill.

And even if it didn’t, people are not going to defer to someone else out of jealousy and resentment.

The only thing this will do is further weaken communications: it will not force people to go back to a time with less freedom.

Journalism has always blamed others for their deficiencies, but their collapse is all on them. There will always be obstacles and competitors. That is a given. You either have what it takes to adjust and succeed — or you don’t and you perish.

Big Tech will get through this period, and there will be upstarts who take advantage and see the new game board, while journalism will try to take out their broken board and throw tantrums that no one is going to play on it…
