Brill Media Ventures L.P. (according to Hoovers Online)
"Taunting the media with a taste of their own medicine, Brill Media Ventures publishes Brill's Content, a media watchdog magazine intended to "embarrass [the media] into doing their jobs the way they're supposed to." Launched in 1998 by chairman and CEO Steven Brill, the magazine is published 10 times a year. Predictably, Brill's Content, has encountered harsh criticism from the object of its focus. Steven Brill controls a majority of the company; other backers include Barry Diller, Howard Milstein, Lester Pollack, and George Soros. In 2000 Brill helped launch Contentville, a Web site selling written content that is backed by Brill, CBS, EBSCO, Ingram Book, Microsoft, NBC, and Primedia."
