EVEN IF it really were just a millennials issue (and it is not), that should be cause for concern when we are near the start of 2016.
The number of 'millennials' is only growing. The number of non-millennials is only shrinking. It is somewhat unlikely that they can cause a rise in the number of people born pre-2000. (Unless David Cohen, Comcast's magician, can convince congress to make this happen -- but nope, he's not a lobbyist, no, nosiree.)
Another reason I just quit entirely watching cable, was the Bugs.
After a long, looooong, Loooooooooooooooooong commercial break . . .
the show starts up, and what happens? A bunch of more ads at the bottom of the screen appear with people walking around trying to sell you on watching more commercials that are punctuated by content programming, in another time slot on the same channel.
And plenty of times, these annoying program-covering ads cover actual important content from the program you are watching. Bits of text on a ransom note that is intended for the audience to read, for example.
I got so sick of this. My TiVo can't fix it. I'll just quit watching.
But now my TiVo is putting its own advertising in my face, so I'm on the very verge of getting rid of it for a different device. This crap, on a device I paid $400 for and continue to pay monthly for. Disgusting. Absolutely sickening. Vermin. Parasites. But even worse, I'll call them . . . advertisers!
The alphabet soup agencies might be secretly cursing Barton. But they can't say so. Because the secret cursing is a classified secret -- because it would reveal intelligence gathering methods. Methods which Barton wants to take away from the TLAs. (three letter acronyms)
