Wow, this sucks, but I had to see this for myself -- I guess somebody figured out, "Hey, if they only pay a thousandths of a thousandths of a cent in music streaming, why can't we copy this model, and apply it to journalism?"

But it's the perfect fit for an era of paying someone to click open an email, to review your work (Submittable), shelling out for all the costs for the work that you do (Lyft, Uber, and others like them), and so on, and so forth --- if this sticks, the race to the bottom just got a little bit deeper and nastier.

I was looking at the list of Bertelsmann assets after reading that Simon and Schuster were getting scooped up by Penguin — this is probably unhealthy.
Nothing good ever came from Gütersloh.
These people can't all be cannibals:

Even worse, some of them are Nazi racist cannibals.

She looks like someone who would enjoy wielding a whip.

I bet in a former life she was a concentration camp guard.
