"This" is trivial. You make it sound like there are 100 employees working around the clock to get and keep the "Earth" channel on the air. "This" has been up since shortly after the launch of E10 on an internal channel on 110. The only difference now that it is public is that you know about it and you can see it. "This" required no negotiations, so those employees were not involved at all.
But don't let the facts stand in the way of a good rant.
You just said that the employees were involed. Now you say that they are not.
