You are correct they are compiling data on what you are watching, to the point of even being able to tell which member of the family has the remote.
You know while all of this little bits of pieces of info they are compiling seems like nothing , put it together and it adds up to a total invasion of
privacy without your permission, that's the issue, your privacy.
Scenario, you are fascinated by demolition and will often watch every demolition show on tv, it's sort of a hobby and you are thinking of getting a
job in it and so you watch trying to learn stuff. You are considering how to go about getting training and a job in this, but you are not sure since
you already have a good career with quite a few years in with the company, demolition is less pay but dangerous and it intriques you. You sometimes
travel on days off to watch demolition jobs, demolition is your hobby.
Then there is a bombing and several people died as a result in your area, you have no criminal history whatsoever but the next thing you know you are
pulled in for questioning. They demand to know where you were at a certain time, but you were home alone asleep and they don't believe you. You fit
the description, 30ish and white with brown hair, that's the total description, a million guys fit that description in your area, but you are the one
You are held on suspicion and you have to hire a lawyer costing you a ton of money, meanwhile the FBI is combing through your home removing
incriminating evidence, every magazine or book or video on demolition you own is put in as evidence, your photo album of trips you took and pics you
snapped of the demolition, all your meds are taken and placed in evidence. All of your neighbors say you are such a nice guy, who would have ever
thought such a thing, but now they all do.
The judge decides to keep you jailed until the trial, you might be too dangerous to let out amongst society, meanwhile the big dude in the cell with
you has just fallen in love, with you. Your not able to work or pay your bills, you lose everything, your home is foreclosed, your car is repossessed
and you are now broke, out steps your expensive attorney and in steps Mr. appointed by the state, who just does not give a crap about you, after all
you are a broke bomber.
Finally the trial, it comes out that you are being treated for depression, love demolition and fit the description, you can't account for your where
abouts and you are known to watch every documentary or movie with a bomb in it. They produce your tv viewing history and have a shrink that spent a
total of two hrs with you say that you obviously have a thrill seeking complex over bombs and that you fit the profile of a bomber. The police say
you are their only suspect and forget to mention that once they saw your viewing history and the fact that you were not able to provide an alibi they
stopped looking for anyone else. They forget to mention that you also watch home improvement shows and cooking shows, sports and porn. Your attorney
has fallen asleep by the time they sentence you to the death.
