  • Repair Before You Replace by Maarten Albarda (Media Insider on 07/12/2019)

    Did you get your $129.00 back from the first shop? Checking a fuse shouldn't be that hard. Finding a good repair shop is often the hardest part.

  • Are We Getting 9/11 Wrong? Taking Stock by Steven Rosenbaum (Media Insider on 09/10/2018)

    If you watch her TED talk, she has very specific suggestions. says it's about civilian safey. 

  • Advertising Activism Has Impact by Steven Rosenbaum (Media Insider on 01/07/2019)

    Tom, here's the thing. If you're going to be part of the conversation... start by signing your name. "Tom Tyler" links to a Linked In with no contacts, no friends, no picture, and the about section says: "GCTVTexas will be expanding in Q4 of 2016 and will be seeking partners, producers, creatives and technical experts in a number of areas." Since 2016 is 4 years ago, let's agree that this is just a troll account. If you want to engage with a real profile, happy to address your comments. 

  • Is Advertising Obsolete? by Steven Rosenbaum (Media Insider on 02/25/2019)

    Ed - do you have any data to back up the claim "that public at large still thinks that ads are a fair price to pay for content" - isn't the trend from cable to OTT and subscription (netflix) suggest that people are moving away from servies that have interuption advertising as their core economic basis?

  • Is Advertising Obsolete? by Steven Rosenbaum (Media Insider on 02/25/2019)

    Hey Doug, thanks for joining the conversation. Here's my question - would you say TV, radio, print are stronger today than five years ago? What will they be in 5 years? How do we get in front of consumers with ideas and offers they don't know they want, when someone can use Tivo, or another browser tab, or Spotify rather than radio? If old models are fading, what takes their place?

  • Is Advertising Obsolete? by Steven Rosenbaum (Media Insider on 02/25/2019)

    Hey Paul, thanks for sharing your thoughts. I'm wondering, are you saying you think advertising, it it's current form is good for society or a necessary evil? Does advertsing, centralized in a handful of platforms, provide value to consumers, to brarnds, or to publications. All three? None of the above? What if we could invent something better that connected consumers to brands and publishers. Would you engage in that exploration - or stay put?

    Tom - that's a fantastic cookie cutter Alt Right response. Do you have a blog where you write more lengthy commentary of this sort, or do you just post troll comments? When is GCTV going live? Because I'm sure I can post on your blog as well. In terms of free speech, Tucker has the right to say whatever he wants. But he has no 'right' to broadcast on TV, and advertisers have no obligation to sponsor his hate. It is - after all - a free market.

  • Pizza, Rent -- And Trump by Steven Rosenbaum (Media Insider on 12/17/2018)

    Tell me what part of this story isn't accurate? As the Trumps Dodged Taxes, Their Tenants Paid a Price

  • Information Warfare Comes Home by Steven Rosenbaum (Media Insider on 12/03/2018)

    Kenny - so if I read you correctly - you're suggesting a federal campaign like the war on drugs for social media? "Don't Do Facebook!" Don't Do Reddit!" Don't Do Instagram!" Don't Do SnapChat!" - have you considered going into the t-shirt business? You could make a fortune. 

  • Information Warfare Comes Home by Steven Rosenbaum (Media Insider on 12/03/2018)

    Thank you, Henry - very well put. And agree that the bots confuse the algorithms, which then increase the 'popularity' of the Fake material through popularity. The problem is that the Fakers are highly incentivized to invent and re-invent novel solutions, while the platforms are only moderately interested in fighting a losing battle.
