Company buys poll covering subject Company has big financial interest in. Company releases bought poll results to boost case Company has big financial stake in. Much laughter ensues…

This is a joke. Should anyone seriously take a poll commissioned by The Weather Channel regarding something it has millions riding on at face value? Apparently the slackers at TVNewser did since they wrote it up without typing “lolololololololol’ all over it…

On the other hand the polls results do inadvertently make a point The Weather Channel may not like spread around. If…if…we take these results at face value…which I don’t and neither should you…it means less than 10% of DirecTVs subscribers would bolt over this…less than 2,000,000. But that also means that 18,000,000 would not. It also means that 18,000,000 people don’t buy that BS ‘We are like a public utility and you cant afford to get by without us because your safety is at stake’ mumbo jumbo. Maybe they will drop that line of attack now since it clearly is not resonating like they hoped it would.

    tv newser just pointed out the craziness of the weather channel. unlike this blog, tv newser attempts to be a legit news blog..not an opinion blog. there’s a difference.

    This is intentionally an opinion blog. If you’re looking for legit news, try this: http://www.theonion.com/
