For the sake of the party? No. In order to attract bigger audiences by
airing "controversial" stores and showing "people in power doing bad
things"? Oh, yeah! (And that's the angle you'd have to pitch it to

You're right, they don't care one whit about you. Bigger audiences,
which mean more advertiser dollars, are their siren call.)
