What is to be expected when a corporation (NBC-Universal) puts zero thought into purchasing a Science Fiction channel before they purchase it.
Shouldn't a corporation always ask these questions of itself before purchasing a Science Fiction channel?
1. Those of us who work for this corporation, are we Science Fiction fans?
2. Do we know enough about Science Fiction to justify purchasing a Science Fiction channel?
3. Is it a good fit within our corporate portfolio to purchase a Science Fiction channel?
4. Does our corporation..."Fit In"....within the social culture of Science Fiction?
5. Are we always going to be at odds with Science Fiction fans because we don't know shit about running a Science Fiction channel?
6. Are we eventually going to have to convert the Science Fiction channel into a general interest cable channel with no discernible and singular on-air identity because we failed miserably at trying to run the channel as a Science Fiction channel?
7. Do we have enough imagination and inspired thinking to run a Science Fiction channel?
8. Is our operating budget for the channel going to be so low that we'll end up being a garbage dump for crappy B-movies, wrestling, and boring as shit reality programming?
Let's see now...This is how these questions have been answered by NBC-Universal during the past 16 years based upon its behavior as a corporation....
It's always those who are in the thick of it who are the last to realize what miserable failures they really are at what they do for a living. How they command salaries is anyone's educated guess.
"Welfare Joe"....salaries I might add.
Read the books Universal Studios has tried and failed to censor on Amazon.com...
And read these books at another location where Universal Studios executives and its stealth marketers won't be able to post negative, misleading (stealth marketed) reviews of the books via them purchasing candy and Rogaine Foam on Amazon.com (allowing them access to the Amazon book review section) and not actually buying and reading the books. I'll leave the other 150 global locations under wraps for now.
