Comment They'd be cannibalizing themselves. (Score 1) 417

I don't get it -- doesn't the mainstream media get revenue from adblockers as well? Last time I checked, just about every newspaper site used it. Hell, CNN has google text ads running on the lower right. If they tried a stunt like this, they'd be cannibalizing themselves.

If there's a space for a competitor to revive for-pay content, it's as a super aggregator. Someone should reinvent the cronkite-era 15 minutes of uninterrupted daily news, make it better than anyone else's coverage, and sell it for a few cents a day.

Comment Re:But then the senate and house versions... (Score 1) 658

Actually I'm very curious about how this works. Any gov't geeks know exactly what hurdles require the 60 vote supermajority, and which don't? Like, can a bill squeak by with a few moderate republicans on board, then get changed to something that only needs a simple majority? Or will it have to pass that 60 vote test again?

Research is to see what everybody else has seen, and think what nobody else has thought.
