"Get The Facts references"? It's not even grammatically correct. What is "Get
the Facts" with capital letters? I guess a whole load of money can buy
somebody a phrase. *smile*
Microsoft studies are selective. The hypothesis/ses drive the studies and
conditions are massaged to tailor the outcome. Only gross use of money for
campaigning through advertisement would get flawed studies any attention.
Think of the film Kong, which was advertised like there was no tomorrow.
Okay, it's subjective, but pick your least favourite film and recall how
much advertisement was needed to persuade you to take it seriously.
