I’m going to go out on a limb here and suggest that this is a way for someone to profit from fame rather than creating something meaningful or useful in the world. Just because you CAN sell a book doesn’t mean you SHOULD sell it.
It’s because money serves as the lever through which they can foist their decisions upon us using commercials, media time, and advertising, our modern day propaganda machine. It’s not as I used to think naively because they fear that Republicans will still outspend them in some way.
If if we were to remove their ability to spend money on manipulating us then they would have to seize and maintain their power the old-fashioned way which is by offering us ideas and reasons to elect them.

Forget what Chuck Todd says. He doesn’t see the big picture.
Commercial, private media is the worst affliction of human civilization at least since the 20th century. I cannot wait until its era is past. It is truly a double-edged sword at best. No one can seriously argue its merit after what we have come to now.
Exactly! This incarnation of capitalism is winner-take-all, white-male-supremacist in nature, extremely elitist and exclusionary. . . . It is a pyramid where at the very top are the winners or the winner. By default it seems like there must be some kind of winnowing that takes place and due to various factors white males are at the top of the capitalist pyramid.
