  • Hillary Clinton's $25G for Rutgers speech was less than school paid 'Snooki'

    Hillary Clinton has been known to make huge sums in speaking fees, but Thursday’s reported payment may sound like she was short-changed. Clinton was paid $25,000 to speak at Rutgers University about being targeted as a woman in politics, the upcoming elections and the Trump administration, among other topics, NJ.com reported. But the money she made seemed to be considerably less than some other high-profile guests who've spoken at the New Jersey school. For example, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, of “Jersey Shore” fame, was paid $32,000 for her Rutgers appearance in 2011. Students paid for her appearance using money from the...

    Late-night talk show host Jimmy Fallon teamed up with MTV and the NAACP to send busloads of protesters to take part in Saturday’s student march for gun control. MTV announced that it had joined the left-wing civil rights group and a list of celebrities, including Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, and NBA star Carmelo Anthony, to send “17 busloads of youth” to the gun control march kicking off:

    A few weeks ago we asked our readers to vote for their least favorite songs from the 1990s, so it was the obvious next move to dial it back 10 years and see what you guys hated in the 1980s. The results are sure to infuriate a lot of people. For the record, I personally disagree with most of these selections. In fact, I love a lot of these songs... 10. Rick Astley - 'Never Gonna Give You Up'... 9. Taco - 'Puttin' On The Ritz'... 8. Toni Basil - 'Mickey'... 7. Bobby McFerrin - 'Don't Worry Be Happy'... 6....

    To offer a corporate tribute to a national school walkout for gun-control measures, Viacom -- which owns several major cable networks -- "will suspend regularly scheduled programming for 17 minutes" at 10 am on Wednesday. Liberal student activists will take over MTV's Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat accounts. MTV, VH1, Logo, Comedy Central will have orange (the color of gun violence prevention) logos until the "March for Our Lives" on March 24. Their press release is headlined "Viacom to Support Courageous Youth Activists Who Have Had Enough of Gun Violence." Or one could suggest "Viacom to Stick It to the NRA."

    Maybe it’s the proliferation of social media in our daily lives that has exposed us to this insanity, but we’ve seriously gone off the deep end. For some abortions rights supporters apparently, the Florida shooter wouldn’t have been able to commit this tragic crime if his birth mother had aborted him. That’s what Israeli-American reporter and former MTV Europe VJ Becky Griffin insinuated on Twitter. Woman puts baby up for adoption, he grows up to be a violent young man who will spend the rest of his life in prison for a mass murder. Tell me more about how abortions...

    Ahead of November concert, the British pop sensation says the online pressure to cancel doesn't faze him. Boy George is just being true to himself. The iconic British pop singer is excited to return to Israel for his upcoming concert with his band, Culture Club, and doesn't seem to bat his impressive eyelashes at BDS pressure not to perform. "We have to be really careful with the Internet because people say everyone is talking - it's like five people, they're retweeting each other," he told Israel's Channel 2 News in an interview this week, "and that doesn't constitute a revolution."...

    Twenty-five years ago, when MTV played mostly videos, defeated presidential candidate Patrick J. Buchanan delivered his “Culture War” speech before the Republican National Convention on August 17 at the Houston Astrodome, where he feared for the “soul of America.” Twenty-five years later, when conservatives have ceded all control of the culture war to the Left, MTV’s Video Music Awards (VMAs, itself a bizarre oxymoron for an outlet that plays no videos) is now a forum about politics and the course of the country. Conservatives should watch more MTV. Take heed Buchanan’s observations. And fight back. ...

    A descendant of Gen. Robert E. Lee has stepped down as pastor of his North Carolina church after facing blowback from parishioners and others for his comments denouncing racism and lauding the Black Lives Matter movement. As a minister and newspaper columnist, Robert W. Lee IV, the fourth great-nephew of the Confederate general, has spoken and written countless words, but the five sentences he uttered during MTV's Video Music Awards last week were just too much for some members of his congregation. ... Lee, who was pastor at Bethany United Church of Christ in Winston-Salem, has long supported removing monuments...

    The MTV Video Music Awards are always a big night for pop music, but were also dominated by political statements at a fiery show in Los Angeles. Artists spoke out against white supremacy and urged suicide awareness during the awards on Sunday night. Transgender military personnel attended, days after President Donald Trump signed a directive to ban them. Kendrick Lamar was the night's big winner, picking up six awards including video of the year for HUMBLE. The video, directed by Dave Meyers, takes a wry look at the rapper's growing fame and sees him dressing up as a pope and...

    Elton John told an audience at the Cannes Film Festival on Monday that the MTV generation had promoted many musicians who didn’t deserve the attention, but he also paid tribute to the positive role that music videos have played in the music business. John, who was on-stage with his long-term song-writing partner Bernie Taupin, said: “We were before the MTV generation and I’m glad we were because we were real artists. The MTV generation brought along a lot of people who were great but a lot of people who just made videos. So a lot of the artistry went out...

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    As expected, the media lapped up the idea of MTV giving out a Gender neutral Award; the LGBTQ (i?) groups are enthralled at the idea that people would finally be judged equally regardless of their gender. But the problem is… it’s nonsense. It will do nothing to promote “the genderless society”. It will in fact, end up creating larger divisions than before. As so often is the case, social engineering by agenda driven idiots, has idiotic results. If we look at every other mainstream awards ceremony (let’s not actually watch the drivel, just a glance at the results will suffice),...

    It's only the second week of 2017, but it's already been a banner year for preening liberals on cable TV who are hell-bent on self-immolation in the name of proving everyone else's moral inferiority. To use young people's slang these days, you're "lit," media progressives. But not in a good way. On Tuesday, just before the confirmation hearing for Attorney General nominee and Alabama GOP Sen. Jeff Sessions kicked off, an MTV News reporter demonstrated his high and mighty commitment to racial tolerance ... by mocking Sen. Sessions' half-Asian granddaughter. Sessions' daughter, Ruth, is married to Asian-American John Walk. They...

    Ira Madison III, an MTV News culture writer and host, mocked Sen. Jeff Sessions’ Asian-American grandchildren on Twitter Tuesday morning. Sessions appeared before the U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary Tuesday to give testimony in connection with his nomination by President-elect Donald Trump to serve as attorney general. Sessions was accompanied by many members of his family, including his four Asian-American grandchildren. The senator’s daughter, Ruth Sessions Walk, is married to John Walk, an Asian-American man. Madison accused Sessions of stealing his grandchildren from Toys “R” Us for the hearing. He went on to call his grandchildren a “prop,” brought...

    Video focused entirely on skin color. MTV deleted its controversial ‘Resolutions for White Guys’ video after the network suffered severe backlash from viewers: Here’s a copy of the video uploaded to YouTube after MTV deleted the original: The original video, which received over 11,000 down votes compared to just 89 up votes, told “white guys” they could “do a little better in 2017.” “Just because you have black friends doesn’t mean you’re not racist,” the video claimed. “You can be racist with black friends.” “And feel free to take Kanye West, though. You guys can have him.” West was targeted...

    Update: MTV took down the video after less than 48 hours following an intense backlash from online commentators. A mirror is posted above because nothing can be deleted from the internet. 'MTV News' produced this video of proposed New Year's Resolutions for "white guys," because that group could "do a little better in 2017." "Try to recognize that America was never 'great' for anyone who wasn't a white guy," the video urges America's white men, referring to Donald Trump's campaign slogan. "And learn what mansplaining is, then stop doing it." It also advises them to: "Stop bragging about being 'woke.'"

    Just in time for the holiday season, MTV News has issued a series of New Year’s resolutions exclusively for white males — because, the network says, white guys could “do a little better in 2017.” A video posted to MTV News’ Twitter account Monday afternoon features a group of millennials lecturing so-called “white guys” as to how they can improve themselves in the New Year. Suggestions include recognizing that America was never “great” for minorities, and to stop bragging about being “woke.” Video:https://twitter.com/MTVNews/status/810960588973035520?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw

    Muchx latinx limpian sus carx con Kleenex. Huh? What was that? Well, it is a new attempt by the ultra politically correct to purge the Spanish language of any hint of gender based words which would include almost all its nouns and adjectives. Because the new words sound so much like a variation of "Kleenex" I call this new PC language the Kleenex language aka idiomx Kleenex. If you think this is some wild exaggeration then check out the MTV Unbound video below at the 2:10 mark of Kat Lazo asserting with Stalinist insistence that you MUST use "latinx" in...
