    The Internet. You still have gatekeepers but you have hundreds of slightly different gatekeepers most of whom aren't completely dependent on their advertisers instead of a handful of gatekeepers totally beholden to their advertisers.

    It's the difference between paying for one sort of high class whore versus having friends with benefits, hook-ups, love affairs, casual resort sex, and unrequited love.

    You get a professional spin with the one but a better time and more relevent technique with the others. ;)
