@TommyWalker That's clearly terrible too and many smart critics have written about the problems inherent with that system. It was undeniably worse though, when someone like Rockefeller or Carnegie would go in and buy the local newspaper in a town he was trying to operate in. This is that, and equally shameless.

Not that Pando is alone. Bezos just invested in BI--but is that the company that anyone wants to be compared to?

On top of all the things you mentioned, Pando Daily has a deeper and even more systemic problem that it takes for granted which pretty much journalist 50 years ago would have been appalled to hear: Your major investors own or invest in the companies you regularly write about. 

So you have two alarming biases which at times will sharply diverge your interests from those of your readers (or let's just say "the truth"). 

It's sad and unfortunate. But props for writing this post. Parker's article was far too long and far too self-indulgent (had I been advising him) but I'm glad to hear it broke through to at least one blogger.

Adam, those movies are on Netflix...as they've always have been via DVD. Is there another platform you can stream The Godfather? It's not on Hulu.

 @ginidietrich Gini, I'm not "perpetuating" a perception, I'm saying it straight out: marketers control and dictate too much of the online news cycle and bloggers go along with it. They're both liars and spin doctors. This is what I have observed and I'm showing it to everyone.I think GCJ is referring to this Upton Sinclair quote: "It's difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends on his not understanding it."I don't take it personally, but that's why people (such as yourself) are missing the point of the book. I didn't say you were a liar and I think you know that. I said that there is a lot of lying going on though and the public deserves to know about it.
