I will add that there is little doubt in my mind that the InfoWars don’t also extend to purchasing advertising, perhaps through a third party, on mainstream sites like Netflix, Youtube, CNN, FOX, Telemundo, etc…. they just haven’t reported it yet.
We get it. Just please, tell us that you understand it as well? This is a huge expense for us internally and it has the intended result – less innovation and more defense. More resources get tied up to maintain what the client sees as “the normal state of affairs.”
These are the facts of our current reality. We do not have the privilege to ignore reality.
