Everyone on this site needs to watch this. Will help iron out the repetitive misconceptions in the pop thread comments.

Look at who plays the iHeartRadio Festival in Vegas (put on by Clear Channel) then look at the artists you cannot stop hearing on Clear Channel. It's the clearest example of what he's talking about around the 4 minute mark.

92% of Americans over the age of 12 suck.

…or much more likely, it's the other way around: the Festival picks artists for their show that they play all the time.
