Not really "mad" at anybody, just kind of peeved at the faux-nobility of journalistic pontifications about long-gone wrongs and imbalances that point fingers and name names, when in the meantime, look at what's going on...where's the money going and why? Artists get on social media and complain, sure, but what's the effect of that other than an even greater cynicism about "the way things are". Well, yeah, but there are real people still making money, and that's not happening accidentally, so the same type person who gets all righteous about Aretha not getting writer money for "Resect" (which is a really stupid argument imo, Marc Myer's point about the accounting of payment due on sales if far more to the point), let's get one of the Righteously Indignant Heroes to get all up in today's business and name names and follow THAT money, ok?
Just saying, I think an article such as the one in the NYT is a bit of paper tiger faux-bravery. I am neither impressed nor moved. I have, however, used "faux" twice in the same post, so you see how the whole thing degrades us all.
Also, not impressed with the ability of "social media" to do too much besides stirring the digital pot. Real reform, or even justice, still takes place in the analog realm.
