Power of the media - to make you look like a schmuck   posted by the @ 11/19/2005 02:04:00 PM

This article in the NY Times -- Googling Literature: The Debate Goes Public -- is an excellent example of the power of the media. If the publishers' and authors' guilds had a case to make to the public, they've failed here. If this the extent of the coverage, they've lost the PR campaign.

It amazes me to see the top down power of the media (and politicians -- for example Bush on ID) to swing public opinion.
