  • Elton John: MTV Era Produced Many Untalented Musicians

    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...
  • MTV’s Gender Neutral Award Is Idiotic…And Worse, It’s Going To Do More Damage Than Good

    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...
  • MTV Pulls Racist ‘Resolutions for White Guys’ Video Amid Outrage

    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...

    Americans of color to the rescue? That’s how MTV‘s Ana Marie Cox sees it. Appearing on today’s Morning Joe, Cox said: “I feel like if Hillary Clinton wins in the fall, it will be because the black and brown people of America have saved us, like they do a lot of time.” Cox, perhaps best known as founder of the Wonkette blog, was preceded on set by Marcela Valdes of the New York Times, whose recent article noted the lack of political engagement in Latino culture [emphasis added]: “through all my conversations, I began to fear the real roots of...

    Are you sure you want your MTV? On its 35th birthday, a quick glimpse at the network shows it’s hardly what it once was. While change isn’t always easy... it’s not always needed either. What started as a network dedicated to airing music videos and sharing insight on the topic has transformed into a smorgasbord of reality shows that teens who listen to Justin Bieber are glued to. It’s a far cry from the station’s days of “120 Minutes” and “Daria” and Kurt Loder staring into your soul telling you what you needed to know at the top of every...

    <p>It's 2016, which means the 90s are officially a 'classic' era. (Just take Detroit's newest 'throwback' station 105.1 for example.) And since youthful millennials can't get enough of high-waisted shorts and neon, the media overlords at Viacom have made the wise decision to switch VH1 Classic — which primarily broadcast a variety of mainstream rock/adult hits (whatever that means) mix of videos and concerts from the 70s through the mid-1990s (before they went to shit) — to MTV Classic.</p>

    On Friday night, BET and MTV convened an hour-long, commercial-free townhall on police-involved shootings of African-Americans with only distant mentions of what transpired the night before in Dallas but focused heavily on denigrating law enforcement as hunters and “a gang” meant to terrorize blacks from America’s founding, the need for white people to recognize privilege, and lobby for the defunding of police nationwide. Aside from a brief discussion with a former New York City detective, the so-called “historic” conversation was anything but in its one-sided, anti-police rhetoric that even went as far as to suggest the media at large weren’t...

    MTV is urging viewers to pinpoint politicians who want teachers to be armed for self-defense–and then vote those politicians out of office. In a video segment called “The Racket,” MTV pointed out that the state of Tennessee recently enacted a law to become the tenth state to adopt legislation allowing teachers to be armed for self-defense. Then the network ridiculed the sponsor of that legislation, Representative Andy Holt (R-Dresden), for saying he would “like to see 100 percent removal of all gun-free zones in public places.”
  • How MTV's "16 and Pregnant" Reduced Teen Pregnancy

    Conversable Economist blogspot ^ | 12/21/15 | Timothy Taylor
    Apparently MTV broadcasts a show called "16 and Pregnant," in which each show tracks a pregnant teen-ager through the final months of pregnancy, and then through birth and the immediate period afterward. Although I fear the show will remain unseen by me, it is apparently watched by enough teenagers that all by itself it put a dent in the US teen birth rate. Melissa S. Kearney and Phillip B. Levine tell the story in "Media Influences on Social Outcomes: The Impact of MTV's 16 and Pregnant on Teen Childbearing," in a recent issue of the American Economic Review (105:12,...

    DES MOINES — Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and actress Ellen Page, of “Juno” fame, got into a testy and free-wheeling discussion Friday over gay rights here at the Iowa State Fair. “I’m happy to answer your question but not to have a back-and-forth debate,” Cruz told Page, as she pressed him about discrimination against LGBT citizens, approaching him as he flipped pork chops over an open grill. But the two then proceeded to have a spirited exchange over gay rights and whether private businesses — florist companies, for example —can refuse to cater gay weddings in the name of their...

    EXCLUSIVE: Tech company which maintained Hillary's secret server was sued for 'illegally accessing' database and 'stealing White House military advisers' phone numbers' The Internet company used by Hillary Clinton to maintain her private server was sued for stealing dozens of phone lines including some which were used by the White House. Platte River Networks is said to have illegally accessed the master database for all US phone numbers. It also seized 390 lines in a move that created chaos across the US government. Among the phone numbers which the company took - which all suddenly stopped working - were lines...

    As we all remember, the media completely freaked out after the Supreme Court decided Citizens United in favor of free speech. Taking aim primarily at the right-leaning Koch Brothers, the media posed as defenders of democracy against the corrupting influence of outside money in politics. As usual, the facts prove that the media are big fat liars. Although legions of left-wing corporations like NBC News, Politico, MSNBC, CNN, CBS News, ABC News, The Washington Post, LA Times, NPR, PBS, Univision, Comedy Central, MTV, HBO, and ESPN spend billions of dollars pushing a political agenda 24/7, the left-wing media want a...

    A trailer for MTV’s latest documentary debuted this week, and like a great deal of the network’s previous programming, White People and its illegal immigrant director seem ready to bring the drama. Following shows like Jersey Shore, Teen Mom, and 16 and Pregnant, the network’s latest dive into the exploration of cultural issues asks a group of white millennials to explain their “whiteness,” and includes tearful discussions of white privilege and the role it plays in their lives. Pulitzer Prize-winning filmmaker and immigration activist Jose Antonio Vargas, who is in the country illegally, directed White People, and traveled all over...
