The biggest competition at Motown records was the competition between Motown artists. For example, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles competed directly with The Temptations.
If 1105 Media decides that rather than directly compete, Federal Computer Week and Government Computer News would divide up the work and cover more stories it would be a loss. Superficially it sounds good, but the reality for newsmakers would play out along the lines of “oh Government Computer News did a story last week on the FEA TRM so Federal Computer Week doesn’t want to do another one”. From the newsmaker’s point of view it is better if these two publications remain competitive even if they owned by the same company.
