NBCUniversal Buys Big Chunks of Vox Media and BuzzFeed | Re/code
[ independent outlets vanish from media landscape as the big ones invest or buy outright strategic (in their view) assets as they ponder the way forward into a future where they seem irrelevant (attributed at al by Facebook, Google, Twitter, dying newspaper, Appstore - the (smart)mobile phone, ... ] // Vox Media CEO Jim Bankoff — again, my boss — says that in addition to the NBCUniversal investment, the two companies now have a commercial partnership. That means, among other things, that they will collaborate on digital advertising, will work together on video advertising and video programming, and that you will likely see Vox Media employees more frequently on NBCU-owned networks like CNBC. (Re/code already had and continues to have a news partnership with CNBC). [...] Buzzfeed [apparently has] a revenue goal of $250 million in 2015. [...] NBCU more or less ignored digital for quiet some time. Still TV dwarfs digital publishing in real-terms $ ads spend, but TV is declining steadily.

Kara Swisher has lost. | PandoDaily
As Fortune’s Dan Primack points out, as part of Vox, Re/Code now has investors in common with “Square, Uber, Dropbox, Spotify, Instacart, Jawbone, Lookout, Flipkart, etc.” We can argue — and I do, obviously — that having investors in common with companies you cover, or even having investors you cover, is a conflict that can be managed with fierce reporting and clear disclosures. The best example I can offer is that Pando has investors in common with both Uber and Secret. Swisher and Mossberg have made clear they see things differently: Journalism will always suffer when there are investors in common. // &! recode.net/2015/05/26/a-note-to-our-readers/ &! qz.com/412195/comcast-investor-in-vox-media-and-recode-could-end-up-buying-them-both/ &! pando.com/2015/05/27/with-buzzfeed-announcing-ipo-plans-and-comcast-interested-in-vox-let-the-dystopian-future-of-media-begin/

Can we all agree the justifications for this AOL/Verizon deal are batshit insane? | PandoDaily
PANDO - Sarah Lacy: "speaking to the truth of the power of tech [and Wall Street C-Suit spin & PR speak]" // A combined Verizon/AOL is nowhere close in terms of scale that actually matters in the ad business. [...] Verizon has just bought a technology platform [programmatic content and advertising]. That’s why HuffPo, much of the sales team, and nearly anything else can probably go. [...] AOL is hardly leading in anything ad related—it was growing revenues at less than 10% a year and ad sales are only one-third of AOL’s revenues. Verizon likewise hardly leads in “mobile video”—the stated reason they say they’re doing this deal is to augment their mobile streaming video service which launches next month. AOL mostly just gives them a platform to sell ads across it. Woo hoo! That’s why it was done at just 8.3 times next year’s expected earnings in an era of high priced deals. // &! bit.ly/1JujF2q

Comcast and Time Warner Cable are the largest and second-largest cable providers in the U.S., respectively.

Google and Verizon Offer a Vision for Managing Internet Traffic - NYTimes.com
The proposal says Internet providers should treat all providers of Internet content the same, and should not be able to block them or offer them a paid “fast lane.” It says the Federal Communications Commission should have the authority to stop or fine those who break the rules.

But the proposal includes exceptions for wireless Internet access and for potential new services that broadband providers could offer, including things like “advanced educational services, or new entertainment and gaming options.”

The announcement is the latest move in a high-stakes battle over a principle known as net neutrality. The debate is over whether Internet users should be able to access all types of online information on an equal basis, or whether Internet service providers should be able to charge content companies for faster transmission.
