Can't be True
A Florida movie critic has suggested that journalists file a class action suit against Google for ruining their business, just days after a professor of journalism appealed to the software giant to support the education of reporters, according to Tech Dirt. I suspect most newspapermen are smarter than to say things this and secretly cringe at these stupid statements. But maybe James Lileks disagrees. He remarks "That’ll do it. I can see the headline: Newspapers win $1.6 billion verdict against Google, use the money to start a youth-oriented tabloid giveaway paper that competes with YouTube. If you flip the corners of the pages really fast, the pictures appear to move!"
