What strikes me about the 🇦🇺 Facebook dispute is how much of a middle-man big Social is. They claim they get nothing from news, but they made news about $270mil USD last year.

They all play this game "Not our content" they say. Then why do they do it? The idea of tech companies existing on pure altruism is absolutely hilarious.

Reminds me a lot of tobacco in motorsports. They're not advertising to get people to smoke cigarettes! Definitely not. What a terrible idea.
