Technorati ^ | 2.14.07 | JHM

Posted on 02/15/2007 11:16:17 AM PST by meg88

When it comes to reputable sources of broadcast news, you think Dan Rather, Tom Brokaw, hell even Simon Rex was a VJ. The one thing all three have in common though, is that they were given a proper forum to retire publically to their viewers.

MTV'S KURT LODER HAS BEEN FIRED! reports a Viacom insider.

In a follow-up to the previous post about MTV's Valentine's Day Employee Massacre, this news comes in the form of a personal "shock & awe".

Heck South Park had a joke about him being way too old to be on that network years ago!

How on EARTH did this Colmes-like corpse hang on so long there? One of the eterrnal mysteries... MTV constantly shifting their content to fit each succeeding class of teenagers, yet this old fart (who NO ONE was a fan of) stayed cemented in place for 20 years.

He had some exec's pictures, that's for sure.

In Kurt's hay day he got all the good interviews. Madonna, Pearl Jam, just about anyone who was hot at the moment. When Cobain committed suicide he went on MTV live several times to warn of the affects of depression and urging anyone considering doing the same "DON'T!"

I liked him. He gave a little credibility to MTV. Their loss!

"How about Nina Blackwood!"

When I was a kid, we used to watch her. My friends and I swore she was high 90% of the time. We were kids from a sheltered environment in the South, we didn't know what high actually meant.

I wonder what she is doing well these days...

The link is not working for me. Did they say it was because he is too old? Wouldn't that be discrimination? How old is he?

Many, many afternoons of my adolescence were spent watching Guns N' Roses, Bon Jovi, Dokken, Ratt, Twisted Sister, Poison, et al, on MTV before my parents came home.

Try this. Warning, a bit of an eye popper at the top of the page of Britney's no underwear escapes. I really didn't read the whole article. Lot of f words in the comments too. Probably his contract was up. Who really ever knows. I thought he was a columnist somewhere too.

Martha Quinn...THUD

For a while, she was the only good reason to watch MTV...

Maybe we need a Martha Quinn rule on FR, similar to the Ann Coulter rule...

On my Beavis & Butt- Head DVD, it had a TV special involving B & B having Thanksgiving in New York with Loder. Most of the special was B & B making fun of Loder in various ways, such as:
Butt- Head: So, Loder, have you ever scored with that Tabitha Soren chick?
Loder: What, no!
Butt- Head: Have you ever scored with that Idalis chick( I think that's what he said)?
Loder: NO!
Butt- Head: Have you ever scored?
Loder: Um, well, that's...
Butt- Head: Whoa, Beavis, Loder's never scored!

When it comes to reputable sources of broadcast news, you think Dan Rather

I quit after reading that sentence. These two words reputable sources and Dan Rather should never be used in the same sentence. Just the old "fake but accurate" news again.

Former MTV veejay and television talk show host Kennedy has always said she's a philosophical libertarian and a registered Republican. She even has a pink Republican elephant tattooed on her upper left thigh. But Kennedy's allegiance to the GOP may be fading somewhat, if her comments on MSNBC's Scarborough Country (November 17, 2004) are any indication.

Emphasis mine

Love that sexy librarian look :-)
