King Canute the Great exemplified

Via Howard at Etaoin Shrdlu,[1] a link to Seth Mnookin'sprofile of Universal Music's CEO Doug Morris.

Howard calls it "astonishing," and I agree. It's astonishing that Universal's publicists let this get out. Mnookin simply lets Morris talk, and Morris winds up revealing far more about the way the music business works, and why it's in the mess it's in, than he realizes.

If Morris typifies the executives at the top media companies, that would explain a lot. I could almost feel sympathy for them. Almost.

LATER, Elsewhere:  Reaction at HijiNKS ENSUE. (added 071210)
[1] Great, now I've got two "Howards" to keep track of. (The other one runs Oraculations.)
