Re the tech industry capitalizing journalism, an idea that journalism talks about a fair amount.
Why wouldn't tech just buy journalism?
For example Facebook has a market cap of $405 billion.
Google is worth $596 billion.
Apple is worth $740 billion.
Microsoft is worth $502 billion.
Amazon is worth $407 billion.
In comparison you could buy 100 percent of the New York Times Company stock for $2.35 billion.
