DirectTV to Pay $5.4M in Privacy Fines

akiy DirecTV = Thousands of Complaints, Not Millions (187 comments)

This fine article states that although "More than 1 million people have complained to the Federal Trade Commission that annoying telemarketing calls haven't stopped -- even after they've registered with the do-not-call registry, [...] FTC Chairwoman Deborah Platt Majoras said that "thousands" of consumers complained that they received telephone solicitations for DirecTV."

The CNN article linked originally above states, "Majoras said the DirecTV case accounted for 1.4 million complaints."

I'm thinking that the CNN article got its facts wrong here...
