The Emperor’s New Clothes 1:

“Excuse the immodesty, the News Corporation’s pre-eminence as a content creator comes as the debate over the primacy of content is over. Content is not just king, it is the emperor of all things electronic”. — Rupert Murdoch, yesterday

The Emperor’s New Clothes II:

“The Emperor realised that the people were right but could not admit to that. He thought it better to continue the procession under the illusion that anyone who couldn’t see his clothes was either stupid or incompetent. And he stood stiffly on his carriage, while behind him a page held his imaginary mantle”. — from The Emperor’s New Clothes by Hans Christian Anderson
