And Drudge didn't mention Frank and Spacey because of their sexual orientation, but because they're both high-profile Democrats.
Anyway ... The article brings up a legitimate point. MTV, and MTV "News" especially, has long made much of their supposed objectivity and nonpartisanship on political matters. This proves the lie. (And it shows that both Bushes gave MTV short shrift because they knew full well the deck was stacked against them. You don't think Clinton and Gore gave MTV so much attention just to be nice, do you?)
MTV, whose demographic is clearly at odds with W's policies...
Not any more. The under-24 crowd - MTV's prime demo - has become steadily more conservative over the last couple of years.
The article also brings up important questions of about the major pro-Dem slant of Choose or Lose and Rock the Vote. And since Sumner Redstone is in full control of CBS News...posted by aaron at 2:31 PM on January 8, 2001

I just like to chime in with my usual rhetoric about the fact that, as mentioned above, conservatives by definition think that best answers lie in the past. To me, it's obvious that these answers can't possibly be correct. Especially for America.
See, my folks didn't even come to this country until just before the 70's. So how could a politician in his 50's or 60's, who was born in the 1940's or so, think the best answer comes from a past which doesn't include my family? Is he saying that this country is better off without the contributions I've made to my friends & family? Without the employment my company gave to dozens of freelancers? Without my tax dollars?
Off topic, I know. The conversation just provokes a rant sometimes...
