Big Shocker: MTV Sucks!

Big Shocker: MTV Sucks!

Sorry Tom Freston, sorry Brian Graden, sorry Gideon Yago…MTV sucks! They proved it Saturday with their lame “coverage” of Live 8. Other bloggers like The Rabbi, Calacanis, and Blog Critics have weighed in with scathing reviews of MTV’s Live 8 programming, so I won’t waste much more time dissing it…

How MTV Networks could drop the ball so badly is beyond me. Did AOL restrict MTV from showing full performances by participating artists, or force them to interrupt the show so often for commercials, or make them hire VJs to talk over the show and spend more time chatting with fans in the audience than showing us what was happening on stage, or ban them from offering reports from concerts happening outside of Philly and London?

It makes no sense.
