How Facebook Is Killing Comedy

Last month, in its second round of layoffs in as many years, comedy hub Funny or Die reportedly eliminated its entire editorial team following a trend of comedy websites scaling back, shutting down, or restructuring their business model away from original online content.

This is so stupid.

Facebook is not killing comedy. Funny or Die made a business decision to invest in an editorial model that they thought would make them $$$.

Now that it isn't, they're crying foul.

The author is right, however, that this is basically a payola issue. IMO it's more than that: Facebook, Google, etc., these companies need to be Ma Belled because they are way too big and in some ways are acting like a cartel.
