  • MTV: Vote Out Politicians Who Support Teachers Being Armed for Self-Defense

    05/13/2016 10:22:00 AM PDT · by rktman · 38 replies ^ | 5/12/2016 | AWR Hawkins
    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.”

    Sway: Our next question is from Matt from Iowa: "If your desire is to spread the wealth around, what incentive is there for me to try to work hard? If I am only going to get more taken away from me, the more money I make, why wouldn't I just slide into a life of relaxation and let rich people take care of me? And a lot of people are asking similar questions, and I wanted you to specify. What does this mean exactly?" Obama: What is amazing to me is this whole notion that somehow everybody is just looking...

    Argh, my girlfriend and I were watching the Jackass marathon this weekend on MTV. They constantly played spots featuring West (whose racist and socialist past it was up to me to elaborate upon of course) and the idiotic "" anti-smoking ads. The biggest "Jackasses" weren't on the show. At least Margera, Knoxville, et all were funny-on-purpose.

    Media watchdogs are barking over an MTV cartoon that portrays a Snoop Dogg-like character leading two women around on leashes - before scooping up their poop. The new MTV2 animated series "Where My Dogs At?" satirizes such Hollywood stars as Michael Jackson, Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan. But industry pros are incensed over the portrayal of women and blacks in episode four. The half-hour episode, "Woofie Loves Snoop," debuted last month - and until it was removed yesterday, the offending clip was just a click away on "Seinfeld"'s Jason Alexander voices Snoopathon Esquire III, who struts out of his...

    (AP) NEW YORK -- No one knows how to throw a party like MTV. So there must be quite a bash planned for Aug. 1, celebrating 25 years on the air. Right? Sorry. MTV is staying in that night. There are no plans to even mention the birthday. When your average viewer is 20 years old — too young to remember Martha Quinn, not even born when Madonna buckled on her "boy toy" belt — perhaps it's wise not to mention you're 25. MTV wants to be the perpetual adolescent. On a relentless mission to stay hip, MTV casually discards...

  • The hypocrisy of MTV

    CARBONDALE, Ill. -- We are the MTV generation. It's a cliche, but it's true. The influence of the network that brought us "Beavis and Butthead," Britney Spears, "The Real World" and "Undressed" seems near ubiquitous among just about everyone under 30. It‚s been the babysitter, the teacher, the parent and the preacher for an increasingly secular and jaded youth. It has helped homogenize the culture of an entire nation of young Americans. And the only thing that beats MTV's destructive pervasiveness is its hypocrisy. It preaches safe sex while airing soft porn. It promotes gender equality while celebrating rappers who...

    Another episode of the CBS sit-com Becker, which stars the liberal Ted Danson playing a doctor in a one-man practice in New York City, airs tonight on CBS. In last week's episode, upset by the closing of a "residential life" home for the mentally- challenged, "Becker" went to see the city's Deputy Director of Social Services, who launched into a lengthy rant about the evils of how tax cuts have reduced the amount of money available to government and will lead to "crappy schools which will turn out yet another generation of voters who are too stupid and greedy to...

    Skull And Bones Oct. 5, 2003 There are secrets that George W. Bush guards at least as carefully as any entrusted to a president. He's forbidden to share these secrets even with the vice president -- secrets he has held ever since his days as an undergraduate at Yale. In his senior year, Mr. Bush - like his father and his grandfather - belonged to Skull and Bones, an elite secret society that includes some of the most powerful men of the 20th century. All Bonesmen, as they're called, are forbidden to reveal what goes on in their inner sanctum,...

    Who knew that watching MTV could make you feel smarter? If you are aware that Chicken of the Sea is, in fact, tuna fish, that platypus is not pronounced "plat-a-ma-puss" and that buffalo wings are not made of buffalo, well, you're a genius compared to Jessica Simpson, star of MTV's Newlyweds. And now you can continue to pit your wits against the sexy simpleton. MTV has picked up a second 10-episode season of Newlyweds. The reality show chronicles the daily life of Simpson and her hubby, Nick Lachey, as they struggle with the challenges and obstacles of everyday life in...

    MTV party turns violentHAMPTON BAYS, N.Y., June 26 (UPI) -- An MTV party for hip-hop fans turned violent this week in the Hamptons, with four men now facing charges ranging from assault to robbery. The Tuesday incident occurred at Hampton Bays' Summers Beach Club. MTV had bused dozens of its viewers from the Smithhaven Mall in Lake Grove, N.Y., to a beach house in East Quogue, where they were to be audience members for the "Direct Effect" show, a daily hip-hop music program. The New York Daily News said some of the MTV fans decided to leave the beach house...

    A group of hip-hop fans invited to hang out at MTV's beach house in the Hamptons was jolted back to the real world - busted for a wild melee at a nearby club. Four young men were arraigned yesterday in Southampton Town Court on charges ranging from assault to robbery for the Tuesday afternoon brawl at Summers Beach Club. One person was badly hurt in the fracas, and it took cops from three different departments to restore order at the popular party spot in East Quogue. "There were 100 to 120 people involved in various fights," said Detective Sgt. Randolph...

So what can I offer? I know you've gotten enough gifts and money to, well, add a second story, four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a utility room, family room and a new porch with wheelchair access to your parents' house. Cool. I also read that your house is being wired for Internet access, that you've been offered a free Hawaii vacation and that the...

    The 'Real Deal' on MTVJoe Scarborough (archive) June 16, 2003 | Print | SendNow, when first launched, MTV revolutionized the music industry. Video didn’t kill the radio star, it super-sized it.        But over the past few years, MTV’s done a little more than shock its predominantly preteen and teen audiences. With breast enhanced Britney Spears writhing across the stage in see-through lingerie, with sex-soaked soap operas, and on a new show where teenage girls talk about losing their virginity, and by a constant bombardment of videos promoting a singularly single message that teen sex is good.       Now listen, as a guy who...

    TO BE AIRED TONIGHT ON CBS... LOCAL CHANNEL 2 FOR NY METRO AREA TV/CABLE/SATELLITE. "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." The theme for HITLER: THE RISE OF EVIL comes from this quote by Edmund Burke. Burke was not a contemporary of Hitler's or Nazi Germany, but rather lived during the time of the American Revolution. Born in 1729 in Dublin, he was a philosopher and statesman who supported human rights issues, was a member of the British Parliament and advocated conciliation towards the American colonists. This quote is ascribed in...

    Monday, April 28, 2003 Andy Rooney Has War Guilt Andy Rooney says he was wrong about his views on going to war with Iraq - sort of, that is. "I felt chastened," the cranky "60 Minutes" commentator told the Associated Press. "I had to think that I was a little wrong. There's no question that it's better without him in there, without Saddam Hussein." "A little wrong"? Earlier this month he was less wishy-washy about President Bush's decision to launch Operation Iraqi Freedom. He said April 10, "And I must say that fortunately he's president and I'm not." In reciting...

    The leftist attempt to paint the Enron bankruptcy as a Bush scandal includes a badly made-for-TV movie produced by CBS called "The Crooked E." The spin in the fictional world of Hollywood was that the Bush administration, wooed by Enron dollars, helped the corrupt executives steal from the poor and working class heroes. If you followed this spin, it was clear that Enron had no contact with the U.S. government prior to George W. Bush coming into office. According to CBS, Enron simply did not exist prior to George W. Bush. Yet the CBS TV sit-com and its leftist spin...
