There's no way around that fact.

No, the point is that XM was the household name before Howard's
announcement. There was no reason to choose Sirius over XM before the
announcement, and the numbers showed that back in 2004.

So? Nobody's claiming Stern didn't bring attention to Sirius. That's a
far cry from showing how he's responsible for all their subscriptions.
