By all accounts, Verizon Communications should be sitting pretty. With social media the dreary buzzword for everything and anything, and “what’s your platform” the sort of rchaic catch-phrase for how you get your information, one would think that a company as big and as powerful as Verizon would not have to scrape the bottom of the barrel to lure new customers and sell services to those it has.
But scrape that barrel it has. And, it’s not just Verizon. Believe it or not, it’s now possible to think of Verizon as an old media company. Just like some newspapers and magazines, and, it seems, Time Warner Cable. Well, at least according to a recent announcement of TWC's which is trapped and being choked by expensive and lousy programming on increasingly lousy cable channels.
Cable television is now primarily a source of watching re-runs of bad broadcast network television shows you didn’t watch in the first place.
