I’m tired of reading endless expressions of grief for the demise of traditional media. They are disappearing, but largely due to their own ineptitude. They were too stupid to recognize that an outdated distribution model has the potential to damage a business, especially if its customers consume the product with gritted teeth — there is a lesson here for the music industry and Microsoft.
Update 2: It’s official, Ron Paul has been excluded
Update 1: This may have been a misunderstanding. The article still stands for now, we’ll see how this plays out.
Ron Paul is excluded from the next FOX news debate.
Everyone is disgusted with both party establishments and this only serves to remind us why. Of course we would rather Ron Paul be on stage, but what FOX news doesn’t understand is that a major part of his appeal is his ability to make the Republican establishment feel pain and humility. The more they play to Ron Paul’s outsider image the more he appears to be the only guy capable of truly significant changes and the more his appeal will ultimately grow.
