It does surprise me that media companies have had an effect way above their weight but that's because the IT industry has traditionally not used its clout. No unions, for example. The tendency to route around problems rather than fixing them. It's changing though, as large tech companies like Google are getting involved in the political side of things.
That's not to say there won't be rough times ahead, but I think it will turn out ok.
