For this episode of #ThisOldMarketing, Joe and Robert discuss John Oliver's take on the broken business model of newspapers.  The boys believe that in the near future, you'll see brands actually owning these media properties.  In other news, Gartner's new "Hype" cycle is out for marketing and Google+ closes on-air hangouts.  Rants and raves include what's wrong with the buyer persona.  This week's TOM example: Ernst & Young.
