1/3 HUH?! 

 An NYT story about MSM lobbying body’s weird “study” with super clickbaity $4.7B number based on another questionable study by some little known consulting firm based on an off-hand remark by Marissa Mayer in 2008, 11 years ago ... ?

2/3 Released just ahead of the House hearings where it will serve as talking points for US House elected representatives to beat Google up and look good on TV and mainstream papers and news sites for the next few news cycles?

3/3 NYT asked no Qs about the issues with this study? Just the “Study: Google Made $4.7B Billion From the News Industry in 2018” headline? Conflict of interest, anyone? How does this lousy reported and edited thing helps counter the narrative prevalent on the right of MSM’s bias?

So...two massive lobbying operations are squaring off in the NYT which is shading towards its own best interest? Kind of hard for me to find my outrage here
