Definitely two world views and two business models

Managing propperties and a platform like that are two business model imo...i think that it is very astute of say media to give something up...many companies expand beyond their ability to manage, keeping unprofitable entities that have out lasted their welcom  and I always look at it as a healthy sign when companies make trade offs like this....so..go say media!
