Well, the parent makes all of its points in the form of a question, and from watching fox news and msnbc I've learned that any time someone asks a leading question to make a point, the question can almost always be answered "no." Let's try it out:

- Isn't this a breach of privacy? No, it's aggregated data, there's nothing personally identifiable about it
- Also, Isn't it illegal with the methods that the networks are using to get personal information, in order to fine tune the battering ram of advertisements the besiege us with every day? No, but it's not even relevant because personal information isn't involved.
