I was watching the evening news tonight through heavily lidded eyes, but something very evident occurred to me: people my age don’t watch the news.
How did I figure this out? Commercials. During 1 break that I was a little more cognizant for I saw a commercial for Plavix, Miralax and CVS pharmacies. Not many folks in their 30’s need to take anti-platelet medications. Sure some need to keep the GI tract moving and we all need a place to pick them up for sure. But the general bent to these few commercials I was coherent for were obviously targeted to a older demographic.
Just a random observation. I was really watching the evening news to compare broadcasts, NBC versus BBC America. The depth and scope of coverage between the 2 was very different, vastly different. Once again, targeted.
