I think media owners are the victims of the monopolistic tech giants. Facebook is now the biggest thing ever to have happened to humanity and digital disruption has meant the people are not prepared to pay for journalistic content, therefore media owners have no place to go. They have to play the engagement game to get users attention. When Facebook decimated brands’ organic reach, everyone in media knew they would do the same to publishers, but even at that point publishers were too dependent on Facebook’s traffic and the user base too great for there to be any other solution.
