    It won't be showing any war related videos at all. I mean like ANY videos from ANY time that show bombs or war related pictures.

    Luckily I'm Canadian and have much stations.

    I suggest you download Boom! by System of a Down video off Kazaa. It's an anti war protest video. . . While I'm pro-taking out Saddam this video is well put together and rather convincing.

    im just tired of people complainging about how shitty mtv is. is talking about it really going to shed any more light on the topic? if it really gets you all wound up like this why dont you just not watch it, or if you already dont, why do you care what videos they show?

    everyone walks around with a chip on their shoulder when it comes to mtv. you know you watch it, you know you grew up watching it. if you think it is a "fucking joke" now, go watch some history channel. thats more interesting, anyway.

    Muchmusic is just as bad as MTV. They have maybe 4 hours a week of decent stuff, all of it with George Strombolpoluos.....

    I'm not talking about the quality of the programming, I'm talking about the censorship of videos. This broad censorship seems like an excuse not to air videos like Boom.

    man, i love mtv.

    as long as they dont show pro-war bullshit, i can deal with them not showing anti-war shit.

    i was flipping through the channels the other night and i saw that mtv had war coverage
    i said hmm ill watch it
    what the fuck? they were explaining things going on in iraq
    like the reasons we went to war or whatnot, all fine and dandy
    then about halfway down the list they have to throw in the fact that
    britney spears music isnt allowed to be played in iraq
    later they threw in some other pop facts also which had nothing to do
    with a serious topic like the war
    is this seriuosly what they have to do to keep viewers?
