Grammys Underscore What's Wrong with the Entertainment Industry

Newsweek published an article (via MSNBC) called Looking Grim at the Grammys. It's a great summary of what happened at last week's Grammy Awards, and why so many of the events have such ominous implications for the recording industry.

In case you haven't heard-- sales of recorded music are down, and the industry wants you to believe that the reason is that everyone with an MP3 player is a thief. Newsweek, however, has shown that it recognizes that this is not the entire explanation for the decline in sales. A bigger reason is the fact that so much so-called popular music is formulaic and un-popular.
