I know this, you know this, but people in suits that make these decisions apparently do not know this. You don't even have to go to Canada to see a difference. A trip through the White Mountains in NH will suffice. It all has to do with angles (its around 30 degrees from horizon here for XM) and spotbeam aiming.No no, they are not the same.
That would involve them listening to the service, and I've questioned previously if they do. I enjoy the service and I talk with a lot of customers. What works and doesn't is a pretty well known phenomenon.The folks from SiriusXM should go for a long long long road trip and do some signal mapping across the continent. They could borrow a Google Maps car
You must've missed the news. Anthony was fired by SiriusXM for racist/sexist tirade on Twitter after being assaulted by a woman in Times Square that did not appreciate him taking photos that may have included her in them.What happened to Anthony?
The guy was assaulted and he expressed himself in an inappropriate way on a social media site. I'm not saying he shouldnt've been reprimanded, I just don't see it as a firing offense. If Anthony had been on the air to explain it the next day, even used the same words, I don't believe he would've been fired for it.Come on droo, he didn't pull his ankle gat so he isn't eligible for release after spewing hate speak on a not personal whatsoever social media site? That's homer talk.
If I remember the situation, she punched him in the face a few times and then some other guys who may or may not have even known her taunted him. He just wanted to go home and be done with it, not cause a situation. I actually believe Anthony is a social introvert, and he self-medicates with alcohol so he can counteract that. I couldn't tell you why I think that though.Well maybe he could have smoothed it over on the air. But again, saying he didn't hit a woman! And that being the basis for an argument that he should be lauded for his self restraint is the definition of homer talk. Call the NYPD next time and watch her get tackled in the street.
Most of the contents of those rants, if not all of it, have been said on air and was considered acceptable by SiriusXM. If he had done all of those tweets as a monologue on the show, he would've still had a job. A bunch of people got involved that don't listen to the show and SiriusXM basically catered to them. Most of those people will never be customers.Yeah, he shoulda just ran away. The twitter rant is exactly what the guy thinks on a daily basis when he sees people of color in my mind. That language came out fast and furious on twitter. I don't think he should have been fired for what he said so I think the company was just looking for a reason.
