And that's the story of Keen's elites overall. The Golden Age of mass culture
didn't end just because the Internet let people do their own thing. It ended
because people looked at the low - and steadily declining - quality of
mass-marketed television, radio, news, films, and music and concluded that they
could do better. And they are often right, not necessarily because the amateur
productions are so terrific (though sometimes they are), but because the big
media productions are so often dreadful.
