Do they know what they're talking about?

Marc Andreessen writes
When I wrote a recent post about the collapse in ratings for television soap operas this year -- pointing out that this collapse comes despite the fact that soap operas continue to air new episodes through the writers' strike, albeit episodes apparently written by scabs -- I received feedback to the effect of, "well, of course ratings collapsed, the writing got a lot worse."

My local source for daytimes soap operas notes that the writing has improved since the strike began.

I wonder if Andreessen's correspondents actually watch much daytime television.
