Apple, the owner of iTunes, discontinued iTunes, similar to how Ford discontinued the Taurus. iTunes has been broken up and now currently exists as Apple Music, Podcasts, and Apple TV, and Finder on an Apple computer. So iTunes doesn't exist in name in 2021.
iTunes charts do exist, but they represent less than 1% of the popularity of music on Apple.
I believe FakeAndyStuart's point in his first bullet point was that if the news source was going to report this story, thorough research would have hopefully led to them reporting the correct name.
Winner winner chicken dinner.
His second point alluded to iTunes' most direct successor's statistics, followed by his analysis between song purchases and song plays.
No allusion, the links in my post show the actual numbers that show that being number one on the iTunes chart does not somehow make you "popular".
Fox Business even made a directly false statement -
Fox Business lied (I highlighted it for you) when they wrote:Another song titled "Let’s Go Brandon" by Loza Alexander was No. 3 on iTunes on Monday, as the anti-Biden chant has produced two separate songs that are both currently more popular than anything the Apple music service has to offer with the exception of No. 2, Adele’s "Easy On Me."
It's a minor detail, but if we're talking about integrity and accuracy of news, the entity's name should be correct. You both make correct claims, but I think one claim is more misleading than the other if we're trying to compare dissimilar distribution to measure popularity, reach, or demand.
Great word salad there, but my claim is in no way misleading. Thanks for trying to help.
