My sentiments exactly…

Gah, this whole business is so depressing. Why can’t the internet kill advertising and public relations, not books and newspapers?”

Of course, it’s an oversimplification of the problem. Media companies’ and shareholders’ lust for profit above all else, the real estate collapse, and the generally horrible economy, can also be blamed, but the point is well taken. This is why we can’t have nice things.
