table. >> good morning. >> i love the title of your book "frenemies." normally it means we're friends but i don't really like you. how does that apply in the advertising business? >> if you are an agency, suddenly the people who are your friends, google and facebook, are competing and going directly to clients. your clients are saying i want to take stuff in house and miss the agency. and the publishers, "the new york times," buzzfeed, et cetera, are suddenly saying, we can be ad agencies, too, going directly to the clients. but the biggest frenemy is the public. particularly on the mobile devices. they don't want to be interrupted by terrible ads. and 30-second spots don't work. small screens don't allow big video ads. and people are saying, why are you doing this to me? and then they say the advertiser comes back and says we're going to give you ads as information because we'll know so much about you. isn't this great? and then the public begins to say, wait a second.
8:34 am
how do you know so much about me. >> more people are on their phones than watching tv. >> the phone is a very personal device. >> you carry it everywhere with you. >> how much of a crisis is this both within the advertising industry but also to the things that exist because of advertising? >> if you follow the money as i tried to do here, advertising and marketing is up to $2 trillion worgd worldwide industry. 97% of facebook's revenues come from advertising. almost 90% of google's come from that. newspapers, magazines, much of television. apps. all dependent on advertising. so if that money dries up, the consequences -- >> describe how that relates to what was considered the traditional media. those that usually got most, if not all of their money from advertising. >> when i did a book on the networks in 1991, three blind
8:35 am
mice. cbs and les moonves is one of the characters in the book. they've done a very good job rev lying on other revenue sources which is one of the challenges for every newspaper to have that problem. how do i get other revenue sources. cbs and the other networks have had it. they sell to digital companies like netflix and amazon. they get retransmission consent from the cable companies in return for their programs and they now are allowed to own programs and sell them. so they have other source of revenue. and that's good. but if that 46% of advertising goes down to 25%, cbs has to make that up. >> subcryptions. some people try to get subscriptions from going right to the user to get them to pay more. is that going to make up for that? >> the four of us could afford to pay more in subscriptions but the average american spends roughly $250 a month and that doesn't cover their s
8:36 am
subscriptions for con-ed and power. the one thing donald trump and hillary clinton agreed on in the campaign is the working class and middle class, their income was frozen for the last ten years. how do they afford more subscriptions? it's a wonderful idea but it's a pipe dream. >> the game has definitely changed. you talk about the characters in the book which are really great. les moonves, you describe as the steve jobs of tv. brilliant operator who likes to win. carolyn everson. how does she factor in? >> the book, in a way, and i have a chapter on this, it's gone from "mad men" to "math men." math men are the engineers and data scientists. here's carolyn everson who comes out of the advertising world. very good. a great sales person. a great people person. >> at facebook. >> she works for a company that's based on engineering. and so she's trying to put a friendly face on what many
8:37 am
people in the advertising community see as an unfriendly company. >> michael casson? >> michael casson is a connector to a very insecure industry. people who are full of anxiety. >> you said everybody is scared basically. >> disruption scares a lot of people. if you go to the newspaper industry and do interviews or even watching television, people are terrified of netflix. so insecurity means that if you can find a character like michael casson who i call the connector, he basically represents everybody. represents clients, publishers. represents facebook and google. >> okay. ken auletta, author of "frenemies." it goes on sale tuesday. meet america's new spelling bee champion. see the word the 14-year-old spelled to win it and how it came down to a my name is tony thurmond. education isn't the goal, - it's the gateway. hold the key... to every child's opportunity. we reject trump's attacks on our public schools. and invest in the teachers dreamers. modernize our curriculum and empower educators to teach beyond the test because creativity and critical thinking are as important as facts and figures. i'm tony thurmond the work starts now. state superintendent.
