Sorry, it’s just true. IWantMedia: David Eun: Google Won’t Become a Media Company.
It’s not fair in that I am on the road and can’t write my full defense of this. But I understand why Google claims to not be a media company, in terms of not being, say, the New York Times. But…that doesn’t mean it doesn’t threaten the core underpinnings of what makes a great media company. Is that a bad thing? No. But it’s not accurate to say Google isn’t a threat.
