Hey, tell me about it…

This parlous news comes over the transom from The Washington Post:

Google and a handful of other tech firms are acting as advertising middlemen for the presidential campaigns, taking a huge cut of the revenue from online ads.

These firms have given the campaigns greater precision in targeting voters, but the process is starving politically oriented media sites in what once was their most lucrative season.

If this were a just world, that revenue would be going to, you know, political blogs and other worthy venues.
