Evaluating Universal Studios / SyFy Channel's Behavior In The Past 11 Years Alone
It was a decade ago that the new phenomenon called the Internet first put Universal Studios and SyFy Channel on the "hot seat", and revealed that their was (and still is) a massive corporate conspiracy going on against the only true "Battlestar Galactica" series first airing in 1978. Universal Studios / SyFy Channel response to the revelation of what they had been doing to the 1978 series was to play the "Mr. Innocent" routine. "What us?"......"A conspiracy going on at our corporation?"......"Surely you jest!!" Of course, Universal Studios / SyFy Channel took the revelation of their dirty way of doing business with the "Battlestar Galactica" property alot more seriously than that, as they proceeded to spend the next decade misusing the practice of "stealth marketing" in order to verbally assault the general public on Internet bulletin boards for believing that there was a conspiracy going on, and to verbally assault the general public on Internet bulletin boards merely for expressing a fondness for the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series.
In rational modes of thought, the practice of "stealth marketing" is used to merely promote and drum up interest for an upcoming movie or television series. Unfortunately, in the hands of Universal Studios and SyFy Channel, "stealth marketing" mutated into a sleazy and dark practice of rabid self defense (their self defense) on Internet bulletin boards, in order to (unsuccessfully) squelch the truth about the brutal reality of this conspiracy going on. The fact that Universal Studios / SyFy Channel would actually hire a stealth marketing firm ("Abraham & Harrison") in order to verbally assault the general public on Internet boards (for 10 years and counting) only reinforces the fact that this conspiracy was (and is) indeed going on.
Technically, Universal Studios / SyFy Channel doesn't need "stealth marketing" anymore, because Ronald D. Moore's sham "Battlestar Galactica" series has long since been cancelled, "Caprica" has long since been cancelled, and since "Blood & Chrome" will inevitably follow the troubled ratings predicament of both previous series, "stealth marketing" is no longer necessary. Of course, since Universal Studios / SyFy Channel will continue to misuse "stealth marketing" as a means of rabid self defense against the truth, (and they will most likely continue to do so for the rest of their meaningless, corporate lives), "stealth marketing" will never end at Universal Studios / SyFy Channel. Even if they have no upcoming important projects (to them) to promote. Because Universal Studios / SyFy Channel will always consider "stealth marketing" a justifiable means to an end. They will always consider it a necessary component to their daily corporate lives, in order to (unsuccessfully) defend themselves against the awful and blood curdling "sting" of the blunt truth. The blunt truth being, that they are the worst owners on Earth of the "Battlestar Galactica" property. They are the worst owners the "Battlestar Galactica" property could have. We're talking "bottom of the barrel"......"road kill" type of sleaze bag owners here.
The truth is the truth. Most likely, Universal Studios / SyFy Channel never learned that in the past decade. Most likely, they never learned that "verbally abusive stealth marketing" against the general public (instigated by them on Internet bulletin boards) will never change the fact that they have been and forever shall be in the wrong in how they have deliberately mismanaged the "Battlestar Galactica" property for the past 33 years.
It speaks volumes about Universal Studios / SyFy Channel's all around incompetence with the "Battlestar Galactica" property that they will always need to misuse stealth marketing at the corporate level in order to unsuccessfully defend themselves against the truth of their own sins. It's like the addicted Heroin user who always needs the daily escape from reality, isn't it? Sometimes mutliple, daily escapes from reality are necessary for Universal Studios / SyFy Channel, right?
