The thing is that these guys, "big broadcast?", should be climbing up the backs of those guys that they rely on to tally their viewership in order to more accurately reflect the size of that viewership and thus price accordingly. So if eyeballs=dollars what the fuck is the problem here? Too many eyeballs? Wut? Aero makes a public broadcast more available that "sells" things based on viewership and ratings. The only logical result here is viewership increases thus making the broadcaster's time more valuable.
The officers involved here are either completely and fantastically in over their heads, need huge write-offs or they're simply being manipulated.
Strong public signal good. Public win. No contest.
CBS? Let them eat cake. If I want to watch person of interest I'll read the NSA files. If I want to watch broke girls I'll cruise youtube. Elementary? Sherlock, you jest.
They're now in the Supreme Court of the United States and everyone wonders why people share. Business is booming in court and business leaders have their heads in their hands blocking their own vision.
If Aero wins or looses they've already lost and failed to recognize that regardless of outcome that CBS, broadcasters and their creators are in a brave new world and making enemies in it rapidly.
I'll take the wire and choose my own ride, but thanks.
The disappointing aspect of all of this is that through a simple script such as this the works would have been disseminated far and wide and this could only generate more interest. Through "poor" quality offerings that cost nothing works like these find a wider audience. Wider audiences generate more interest and, in some cases, a desire for both higher quality materials and more works, refined and raw. These, in turn, generate thought, discussion, ideas and, in the end, more creations.
Mr. Gottlieb has clearly failed to recognize pure opportunity due to a misguided sense of ownership entitlement to works that are not his own. A far, far too common stance by those that would believe that the rent is more valuable than the work. Greed and self-interest is what that is and this while hiding behind the espoused virtues of protecting the creators, protecting the creations and protecting an income unearned.
erhm.. It looks to me like the European Union gives at least two fucks and I'm almost certain that there's at least two more fucks east & west of Europe and I give one fuck so that's potentially five whole fucks given. I forget, do you need the douche before or after you've been fucked? Fuck it, you should probably douche twice for safety's sake. Isn't there a pole somewhere you should be licking? Put that tongue to better use, maybe?
It simply boggles the mind that this woman has any credibility whatsoever in matters pertaining to intelligence. Her top donors are pretty heavily vested in taking in the money of the American people. She's proven beyond a reasonable doubt whose interests hold sway over her actions.
Feinstein is a staunch supporter of the U.S Surveillance State (USSS).
How comfortable her life must be as one of the richest members of the Senate. Living proof that you can buy and sell anything.
