We apply a similar aphorism with the same attributes in
broadcasting the mention. When converting media analog to
digital data platforms, customers assume that the little
erroronic nuances of the master source will be corrected in the
conversion process. the phrase garbage in, garbage out is
always the explanative. The "gospel" is what the client want's
to think the results are... sorry it ain't so.

In a live broadcat chain, I always remeber what Howard Zuckerman
said as he sat in his network control room during Live Aid back
in the ealry 80's. There was an issue with the sync timing of
the production truck at Chicago's Soldier Field, just one of
many remote stadium venues being integrated into the overall
global broadcast production. While the director in Chicago
wouldn't specifically admit to the problem, Howard, out of frustration of getting a straight answer from him, pronounced
back into the 4 wire shoutdown circuit (PL comm system) to all
the venues and said "so what you are telling us is that the
problem is leaving you fine, is that correct?". To which the
Chicago director answered "that is correct".
