Comment: FYI: "Promos"

(See in situ)


FYI: "Promos"

Just FYI:
- It's only a "commercial" if it's a paid advertisement.
- If it's touting another show on the same station/network it's a "promo" (promotion).
- If it's touting some non-commercial thing, like announcing the next city council meeting, as part of the station's "community service", it's a "PSA" ("pee-ess-aay" = public service announcement).

Not that the distinction matters to us, since they're all eyeball/ear-wash while we're waiting around to actually see or hear the programming.

"Obama’s Economists: ‘Stimulus’ Has Cost $278,000 per Job."

That means: For each job "created or saved" about five were destroyed.
