Retweeted by Edmund LeeHappy birthday to me. @ShiraOvide Me tooI think the cash outlay is worth it if higher percentage goes towards fully owned content like HBOI think Netflix defines originals as stuff that first airs on Netflix even if it doesn't own it outright like House…$NFLX will spend $8 billion on content next year.

Retweeted by Edmund Lee.@yashar @lpolgreen report @RonanFarrow's story on Weinstein would have be reviewed by head of NBCUniversal
@carr2n David may not have nailed that story but he never really backed off WeinsteinI remember @carr2n facing down a very angry HW at party after David's story ran. They were literally chest bumping yet you're unlikely to see Sandberg or Zuck at the public hearings next month. @AjitPaiFCC is this how it's done?
