SLACKER HAS HAD, AND CONTINUES TO HAVE, REAL LIVE MUSIC CURATORS FOR THEIR STATIONS.

How hard is this to get into everyone (esp. Iovine's) head?

Daisy is late to this game.

Sum

We hand pick and curate every single piece of music that streams on Earbits. Iovine is way out of touch

My question would be is he really out of touch or is he willfully misleading everyone willing to listen?

Because a lot of people, even in the media, are taking him at face value so it may be a winning tactic. And certainly many music fans will believe Iovine over any media critic.

On the other hand, CEO Ian Rogers is making absolutely no public statements probably because he would immediately be asked about Iovine's misrepresentations.

If Iovine does believe this and no one around him is pointing out the problem with a soundbite he's dropped in every related appearance, then that says he's surrounded by yes men and women which is also a bad look.

Clueless or lying?

I don't like binaries but that seems to be the only possibilities for explaining Iovine's statements about music curation and discovery.
