    I don't care about conscious marketing and I believe the studies those that take part in them aren't truthful and only want to give whoever is doing the study what they want to hear is all just my opinion. I believe those that bash Amazon buy from Amazon less than 1% really don't buy from Amazon that do as I say and not as I do. Nike has always been whipped for cheap labor or as some call it child labor/slaves labor as for me I like Nike they make great quality clothes & shoes, I'll always buy stuff from Nike no matter what those that don't like Nike will say that you support sweatshops & cheap labor etc. Which I don't and those that complain don't have made in the USA clothes or shoes.

    Hi Adam,

    I certainly appreciate the difference between opinion and fact, and the role of a "commentator" writing under the banner of "Commentary." Critics, by design, are asked to apply critical thinking to a subject, and criticize as they see fit.

    You made the point, several times, that you thought the documentary is too long.  And that may well be the case for a majority of viewers, including me.  Bravo.  I'll let you know come Saturday night.

    Your essay, however, reminded me of articles I used to edit for my high school newspaper.  When "look how clever I can be" trumped "here is something else to consider before consuming this art form."

    And your arguments about youth responding to music from the 1960s and '70s was reminiscent of how Marjorie Taylor Greene talks about American history.  (See what I did there? How clever I am!).  It would be like me suddenly forming a fascination at age 25 for Renoir or Mozart.  (I did it again!)  And I don't know what to make of your fixation with t-shirts.

    What you fundamentally fail to understand, and therefore address, is that there will never be another moment in the history of the human race when someone isn't listening to The Beatles.  Their body of work, unparalleled in what you refer to as pop and rock music, transcends generations and will continue to transcend time itself.  Six hours of previously unseen footage is barely a moment in time.

    Facebook removed my account both personally and my business. While they have refused to say over why, there are clear possibilities as to answer this question. I wrote to all of my followers and members about two clickbaiters, Chinese based farm and a Whatsapp.com porn operation. Because I am strongly against fake accounts to create a page for advertising revenue, Facebook could have decided to remove me from my complaints. They also were looking at my business because I was cleaning their clocks in distributing sweepstakes campaigns and causing them to lose money. No matter which upset them so much to remove my accounts, revenue and money was clearly at their motives.

    John, it may be that Nielsen ran into problems with its "eye camera" experiments but it's also possible,that if the TV networks knew about it that they weren't pleased and Nielsen decided to go slow on this new technique. I doubt that the technology is 100% perfect but it's clear to me that thinking that Nielsen is providing OTS---"opportunity-to-see"--- data for commercials is misleading to say the least. Even if we grant that a person who qualified him/herself as "watching" the program when it was first tuned in is still part of the "audience" when a commercial break appears---which may or may not be true----the evidence on "absentee viewing" is pretty overwhelming. About 30% of the presumed "audience" is leaving the room---or has already left-- when an average commercial gets on the screen. And, needless to say, many who remain aren't watching. Try to model outcomes with that kind of built in error margin and you will get very inconclusive results.

    Some of us are more worried about the metaverse than the internet 3.0 or 4.0.  As currently conceived, by some, the metaverse will be an imaginary land, where you can have imaginary friends, imaginary cities, imaginary stores where you can buy non-physical things, complete with imaginary police to enforce imaginary laws. All run by companies with the highest of imaginary ethics. What could possibly go wrong?

    I doubt NFL will add 40 teams just my opinion and I doubt St. Louis will get another NFL team if they couldn't keep the Cards that moved to AZ & the Rams moving back to LA which the Rams should've never left LA. I don't see NFL adding any more teams Jags may move to London the only way they get a team.

    Very fair points you raise Ed.

    I'm no way suggesting that this may have happened, but maybe the technology was not as rigorous as expected - that is, not fit for purpose.

    For example maybe it could only "get it right" in controlled testing, say, three out of four times.   What do you do?   Reduce the base data to only the 100% compliant and accurate - and get falsely reduced numbers?   Do you make the assumption that 'passes' and 'fails' have the same viewing habits and just extrapolate the smaller base to the larger base?

    And what's more "eyes on" does not necessarily mean or equate to attentiveness.

    T'aint easy!

     But Q3 saw FAST (free ad-supported TV) and AVOD (defined here as paid ad-supported video-on-demand) see quarter-over-quarter gains of 3 percentage points and 0.8% percentage points, to reach household penetration levels of 14% and 21%, respectively.

    Very interesting, Wayne. So Nielsen has been developing its own "eye camera" system but has so far, not deployed it. Hmm! I wonder if the TV networks knew about this?Or the major agencies? If the answer is "yes" why haven't they been pushing harder to get attentiveness measurements into the national peoplemeter rating system?
