This post is actually a clarification on a point published in a previous post and included in Quinito Henson's article. I can take it back since I should have classified it as a personal opinion rather than truth. Mindshare wanted some sort of retraction from the statement "overwhelmingly recommended" since according to them, they did not recommend a channel one way or another. Maybe ABS-CBN is on their case about it.
I based that statement from the following article last May 27 written by Ronnie Nathanielsz, at the Manila Standard stating projections by Mindshare... "It was also reported that if the PBA games were aired on RPN-9, they would rate around 7.5 percent while if aired on Studio 23 they would rate around 1.8 percent." In my opinion, if your projection is for a channel to rate over four (4) times more than another network, it is practically a recommendation.
So my apologies to Mindshare if the statement caused undue strife. I did not mean to put words in their mouth.
