NEW YORK ( -- NBC Universal digital czar Beth Comstock on surviving and thriving in the new media revolution: "Content is still king, but the monarchy has been overthrown.

Ms. Comstock's comments, delivered at Mipcom, an international programming tradeshow in Cannes, France, echoed those made last week at the Association of National Advertisers by Procter & Gamble CEO A.G. Lafley and Burger King Chief Marketing Officer Russ Klein, who spoke about the need for marketers to cede control to consumers.
