                      People are not big as they seem that including country stars, rock stars. Some of these artists don’t have real fans so yes FCC need to investigate. Payola is going on because social media is very manipulative. Dj have came out and confess to people approaching them about playing songs and that’s a federal indictment off the top right there

                        YouTube already cutting down on plays because yes payola is going on. Artists and labels were paying for ads or links so people can come listen to their music so now YouTube cut that out since investigation going on

Plus my figures are probably low for taxes. Point is they get .55 cents on the dollar like the rest of us.
