  •  As if these guys are even PRODUCING content (3+ / 0-)
    There isn't an industry more disdainful of its audience than these self-styled "content producers" (as if they're the only ones producing content).

    These aren't even the artists or the artisans who help achieve their visions. And they aren't the poor abused peasants who help make bad ideas work enough to hit the air.

    These are at best the people who come up with terrible ideas and demand they be given air; or shoot down amazing ideas and cancel works of genius because they don't know gold from shit, and consider shit easier to shovel into a glossy package.

    Louis CK and Radiohead are now two prime examples of how they can be dispensed with entirely. And I think these content "producers" can sense their end might be coming.

    Fortunately for all, that end will merely involve some sort of comfortable retirement and an inability for them to call the shots. Which will be heartbreaking for them, and joyous for the rest of us who love good art.
