Peter,
You generalize my comments. First off MTV in the 80's would senser metal videos that were harsh. Example: Slaugter Up All Night. MTV sensored the opening of the video in which the girls dress blows up and you see...Oh my God....girls underwear. Same year Madonna has a live video in airplay of Like A virgin in which Madonna is almost "fingering" herself on stage. But I am crazy because there is no double standard.
MTV has become an inner city channel for minorities. This statement is not racist but fact. And you post on this site so you must feel the fustration of all rock fans seeing "artists" taken from housing projects given mega airplay and real "artists" like Joe Lynn Turner and an endless list of others featured on this site get made fun of.
Sure Wil Smith is a great artist....I like his work. But lets be honest. For every positive rap artist you name, a 5 yesr can name 5 who aren't and are played on MTV like they are Gods.
My comment on the Viacom bosses son was just that the incident should be a reminder to him. A channel un the "corperate" umrella potreys these "artists" like what they do is so special. Yet in when the "live" the thug life we are to feel sorry for the victim, in the case I brought up the son of the Viacom boss.
As head of Viacom after that TRAGIC death I think I would be a little more conscience of what my channel is showing young Americans!
