I have no idea who this video's target audience is, but it's a self-promotional ad created by Random House, featuring fabulously successful authors like Ian McEwan, Lee Child, Joanna Trollope, and Kathy Reichs talking about how self-publishing sucks:
For what it's worth, I agree with the sentiment in this video about how editing is vitally important to the process of publishing a book. As I've said a million times before, a good book is the product of an invisible dance between a writer and an editor. Just because you can't see the edits don't mean they're not there. But this video reeks of protesting way too much. It's awkward and self-congratulatory and wrong.
