You will not see this watching your trusted Nightly News.
Trusted News? No busted news.
Lie, cheat and steal - and yet they are entitled under the Constitution to a special status as "Journalists".
Because of this, many a liberal judge would throw out a fraud case for FAKE NEWS.
But would that same judge throw out a fraud case for FAKE RATINGS?
In a game largely sanctioned by TV-ratings firm Nielsen, television networks try to hide their shows’ poor performances on any given night by forgetting how to spell.
That explains the appearance of “NBC Nitely News,” which apparently aired on the Friday of Memorial Day weekend this year, when a lot of people were away from their TVs. The retitling of “NBC Nightly News” fooled Nielsen’s automated system, which listed “Nitely” as a separate show.
Hiding the May 26 program from Nielsen dramatically improved the show’s average viewership that week. Instead of falling further behind first-place rival “ABC World News Tonight,” NBC news narrowed the gap.
If only Volkswagan had known how to do this. When testing diesel engines for emissions, they would call the car a Wolksvagan. When testing all others, the cars would be correctly labeled Volkswagan. And if anyone complained, they would have a special exemption from rules everyone else has to follow.
Arresting journalists for knowlingly lying propaganda to push a liberal agenda would be decried as "chilling" to free speech.
This is like letting a bank robber go free, who had made a rather substantial "withdrawal", because to arrest the bank robber would make regular bank customers afraid to make withdrawals themselves and would destroy the banking industry.
But to knowingly lie to paying advertisors to help your own bottom line, is a fraud even liberals can get behind. (You would think)
Today, there is a media oligarchy of only 6 media companies,
Where does freedom of the press give a pardon to fraud, not just for speech, but for money?
Furthermore, libs love to brag about how many watch Saturday Night Live. Well, that show's popularity is manipulated as well.
Another ratings game involves the calculated placement of national TV commercials. NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” typically loads all of its national commercials in the first hour of the 90-minute show. Since Nielsen counts viewers of a show only through the last network commercial break, the ratings service ignores SNL’s last half-hour, when viewers generally turn away.
Back in 1983, those 6 mega-Media corporations were 50 diversified corporations. (Media loves diversity doesn't it?)
"Too large to fail", today seemingly equates to, "Too large to imprison for fraud".
Here we find that that fraud is a collusion of all of them through Nielson ratings service.
Fake News by Fake Journalists, faking their own name to generate Fake Viewers, to get Fake ratings, just to get real paying advertisers to pay more money.
These deceptive trade practices by these rogue corporations now rises to the level of Raccateering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations, commonly called RICO.
Nielsen has long had a so-called tilting rule that allows TV networks to fiddle with programs for special circumstances. For years, tilting was used sparingly, reserved primarily for Christmas and Thanksgiving or if a show was pre-empted in parts of the U.S. for a live sports event.
Misspelling isn’t the only network trick. CBS boasted that its legal drama “Bull” was the most-watched new show of the just-finished TV season. Typically, a show’s viewership is calculated using the ratings of both first-run and repeated episodes, which are labeled “R” or “repeat.”
When CBS submitted its schedule to Nielsen, however, it labeled reruns of “Bull” as an “encore.” The ratings service categorized it as a different show and didn’t factor the rerun into the show’s season average.
“That’s bull,” cracked Brad Adgate, a longtime ad executive who studies TV ratings. For advertisers, the network sleight-of-hand is a pain in the neck, he said: “You have to pay a little more attention if you want do an analysis.”
