Norman Lebrecht on shifting sound worlds
It’s becoming a big free speech issue and politicians are starting to take an interest.
Which calls to mind the deathless definition by Hunter S Thompson:
Nice quote. Not by Hunter S. Thompson though. Here is what he actually wrote:
“The TV business is uglier than most things. It is normally perceived as some kind of cruel and shallow money trench through the heart of the journalism industry, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free and good men die like dogs, for no good reason.
Which is more or less true. For the most part, they are dirty little animals with huge brains and no pulse.”
“internet ISPs” – a tautology?
