Quote: Nikki Finke On Hulu

Big Media + Hulu.com = Behemoth Media

[W]what truly confuses me is why in hell this online video joint venture of News Corp/Fox and NBC Universal — which will also include Warner Bros TV and Lionsgate (and two sports leagues) and possibly Viacom and CBS in the future — doesn’t violate any anti-trust laws. Here’s yet another way that Big Media is becoming Behemoth Media by colluding with each other — this time, on the Internet. On Wednesday, Hulu’s launch will offer more than 250 TV series and 100 movies. By 2009? Probably everything else showbiz. In the clutches of a dozen moguls. And won’t web consumers rue that day.

Nikki did the best reporting of the recent Writers Guild strike. Deadline Hollywood Daily is a must-read.
