WHO OWNS NIELSEN???

More media manipulation:

The Dutch publishing company VNU acquired Nielsen Media Research in 1999.[12] It later recombined the two halves of the business when it acquired AC Nielsen in 2001.
VNU combined the Nielsen properties with other research and data collection units including BASES, Claritas, HCI and Spectra. The company’s publishing arm also owned several publications including The Hollywood Reporter and Billboard magazine.
In 2006, VNU was acquired by a group of six private equity firms which included Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co., Thomas H. Lee Partners L.P., Blackstone Group L.P., Carlyle Group, Hellman & Friedman LLC and AlpInvest Partners.[13] In the same year, the group hired David L. Calhoun, formerly of General Electric, as CEO.[14] He renamed VNU as The Nielsen Company in 2007.
