Why Haven't MOOCs Eliminated Any Professors?

I clicked on this post by accident but while I'm here I may as well comment. Joshua Kim asks "why haven’t the MOOC robots taken the faculty jobs?" The first thing you should always ask of a why-question is: is it really true? Inside Higher Education itself reports on a tightening PhD job market, so maybe job losses are actually occurring. Also, terminology matters. What are "MOOC robots"? Does he mean robot tutors, which appear to be everywhere? This is more evidence that job losses are probably already taking place.
