“Everyone’s For Sale”: A Generation Of Digital-media Darlings Prepares For A Frigid Winter (Vanity Fair)

Vanity Fair: “Everyone’s For Sale”: A Generation Of Digital-media Darlings Prepares For A Frigid Winter. “As the threat of the so-called FAANGs—Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix, Google—continues to grow, large legacy players, such as AT&T and Time Warner, or Disney and 21st Century Fox, are combining at a rabid pace. Certain heritage brands, like Time, Fortune, and The Atlantic, have landed in the warm bosoms of philanthropic billionaires. New York Media, the parent company of New York and a coterie of buzzy Web brands including The Cut, is pursuing a sale or strategic investment.” I suspect the author meant “rapid” instead of “rabid,” but that’s the best typo I’ve seen in many a day.
