Does the internet "democratize" or "commoditize" information online

Interesting exchange:
  • A writer in Folio: says that the internet allows corporations to communicate with end users without the mediation of traditional media, like magazines.
  • A reader rebukes the writer, saying that, far from "democratizing" content, the internet "commoditizes" it, which undermines the ability of content providers to be paid for it.
