"e;The closer the new media future gets, the further victory appears."e; --Michael WolffThis is a book about what happens when the smartestpeople in the room decide something is inevitable, andyet it doesn't come to pass. What happens when omenshave been misread, tea leaves misinterpreted, gurusembarrassed?Twenty years after the Netscape IPO, ten years afterthe birth of YouTube, and five years after the first iPad,the Internet has still not destroyed the giants of oldmedia. CBS, News Corp, Disney, Comcast, Time Warner,and their peers are still alive, kicking, and makingbig bucks. The New York Times still earns far more fromprint ads than from digital ads. Super Bowl commercialsare more valuable than ever. Banner ad space on Yahoocan be bought for a relative pittance.Sure, the darlings of new mediaBuzzfeed, HuffPo,Politico, and many morekeep attracting ever moretraffic, in some cases truly phenomenal traffic. But asMichael Wolff shows in this fascinating and sure-to-be-controversial book, their buzz and venture financingrounds are based on assumptions that were wrong fromthe start, and become more wrong with each passingyear. The consequences of this folly are far reaching foranyone who cares about good journalism, enjoys bingeingon Netflix, works with advertising, or plans to have arole in the future of the Internet.Wolff set out to write an honest guide to the changingmedia landscape, based on a clear-eyed evaluationof who really makes money and how. His conclusion: TheWeb, social media, and various mobile platforms are notthe new television. Television is the new television.We all know that Google and Facebook are thriving byselling online adsbut they're aggregators, not contentcreators. As major brands conclude that banner ads nextto text basically don't work, the value of digital traffic tocontent-driven sites has plummeted, while the value ofa television audience continues to rise. Even if millionsnow watch television on their phones via their Netflix,Hulu, and HBO GO apps, that doesn't change the balanceof power. Television by any other name is the gameeverybody is trying to winincluding outlets like TheWall Street Journalthat never used to play the game at all.Drawing on his unparalleled sources in corner officesfrom Rockefeller Center to Beverly Hills, Wolff tells uswhat's really going on, which emperors have no clothes,and which supposed geniuses are due for a major fall.Whether he riles you or makes you cheer, his book willchange how you think about media, technology, and theway we live now.
Michael Wolff, author of the bombshell bestseller Fire and Fury, once again takes us inside the Trump presidency to reveal a White House under siege.Just one year into Donald Trump's term as president, Michael Wolff told the electrifying story of a White House consumed by controversy, chaos, and intense rivalries. Fire and Fury, an instant sensation, defined the first phase of the Trump administration; now, in Siege, Wolff has written an equally essential and explosive book about a presidency that is under fire from almost every side.At the outset of Trump's second year as president, his situation is profoundly different. No longer tempered by experienced advisers, he is more impulsive and volatile than ever. But the wheels of justice are inexorably turning: Robert Mueller's "e;witch hunt"e; haunts Trump every day, and other federal prosecutors are taking a deep dive into his business affairs. Many in the political establishment-even some members of his own administration-have turned on him and are dedicated to bringing him down. The Democrats see victory at the polls, and perhaps impeachment, in front of them. Trump, meanwhile, is certain he is invincible, making him all the more exposed and vulnerable. Week by week, as Trump becomes increasingly erratic, the question that lies at the heart of his tenure becomes ever more urgent: Will this most abnormal of presidencies at last reach the breaking point and implode?Both a riveting narrative and a brilliant front-lines report, Siege provides an alarming and indelible portrait of a president like no other. Surrounded by enemies and blind to his peril, Trump is a raging, self-destructive inferno-and the most divisive leader in American history.
