Quotes Ugly business

"The TV business is uglier than most things. It is normally perceived as some kind of cruel and shallow money trench through the heart of the journalism industry, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free and good men die like dogs, for no good reason." Hunter S. Thompson in Generation of Swine.

Homework: reflect on if/how the quote applies to your industry.

Journalism is a lucrative business. It has its own stars, rating and a pipeline of money attached to it. Television is the epitome of its lucrativeness. The news are the new entertainment and the entertainment became a mirror of life itself. TV doesn't bring news anymore, it brings "feelings" to cohorts of viewers "channelized" to a brand new reality.

I'm in telecom industry, a support, "commodity" business. This is why it cannot be an ugly business. The text you quoted projects in my mind the atmosphere from "Sin City". :)
