Worth quoting.

"Content isn't king. News is king. 'Content' is a horrible word, snagged from the bowels of the dictionary by the same internet marketing folks who gave you 'B2B,' 'hard stop' and 'digital solutions.' Its primary definition is something that is contained, such as the contents of a bag of dog food, or the contents of a bottle of valium. News is the last thing that can be contained.

"[But] the word content, like 'wiki,' 'water-boarding' and 'Britney'--all forms of torture--is in the lexicon to stay."
