In addition to writing the best email newsletter in the business, Jason Hirschhorn is also on the board of MGM. That makes him the closest thing to an old school media mogul that we had at our LA dinner of new media moguls. In this segment we talk about two companies that vacillate between threatening media and enabling it to reach a whole new digital generation: Netflix and Hulu.
Here are Hirschhorn’s thoughts on why Netflix’s overcorrection was overdone and the “House of Cards” stock bump may have been as well.
Meanwhile, Jason Calacanis describes in-play Hulu as a sleeping giant. He’d love to see Yahoo buy it and give Google and YouTube a run for its money.
