Hold on to that trump card

Hold on to that trump cardWisconsin Democrats entered a euchre player in a high-stakes poker game. We’ll see how that goes. Early signs are worrying, though. I don’t know much about euchre. Played it a couple of times as a kid. Seemed like a nice, friendly game. But I couldn’t wait to get back outside to play ball. When I was willing to sit long enough to play cards, it was usually poker. It took no time to learn it’s generally a good idea to hold on to aces. The euchre player just discarded one, making an early concession to legislative Republicans by backing off his plan to eliminate the state’s failed economic development agency in his budget. Bad opening play. Bad because it violates the first rule of deal-making: Never make a unilateral concession, never negotiate with yourself. Only give up something when you get something in return.

The Media’s Post-Advertising Future Is Also Its Past

The Media’s Post-Advertising Future Is Also Its PastIt’s my holiday tradition to bring tidings of discomfort and sorrow to my colleagues in the news business. One year ago, I described the media apocalypse coming for both digital upstarts and legacy brands. Vice and BuzzFeed had slashed their revenue projections by hundreds of millions of dollars, while The New York Times had announced a steep decline in advertising.Twelve months later, it’s end times all over again.
