John de Mol paints his face red

He is definitely on a path to war and the first strikes are hard for the opponents. John de Mol has a strong attraction on many established presenter in the Netherlands, or does it come down to plain old deep pockets?
He is definitely shooting the schemes of competitors to pieces, taking away anchors (people and programs) that have taken years to build. For all I can say, he may not be to interested in new projects/people himself, I am very happy with what is happening. Where there are holes they must be filled. I understand the need for establishment, especially John de Mol's, but establishment always means no room for new initiatives. Now, the Dutch broadcasters must move out of their comfort zones.
