@bkryer What I’m getting at is that you can do things in language you cannot do in the real world. We imagine institutions like Fox News or the NYT to be as we imagine them to be and not as they actually are: very large complicated phenomena. That is why we are reliably surprised when they change quickly as we are expecting them to act like the idea we have of them being fixed entities, instead of, in this case, a multi-headed multi-media presence among multi-headed multi-media presences. Whew, just saying it.
