Moral Authority

Morality has never been hotter.

There has been a disturbing run of PSA’s on MTV lately (not to mention South Park syndication) that I am sure will throw Nancy Grace into a hissy fit. is the website the MTV ads are pushing lately, and I’m sure that for some people the website does some good, so I won’t write it off completely. Most confusing about the advertisements, however, is their appearance on MTV itself – a channel which produces constant surveillance of celebrities and promotes the over-sexualization of precarious individuals.

Conversely, the website’s messages of “Anti-Sexting” (sexy-texting for those of you who don’t speak LE3T) and how to counter “Constant Messaging” doesn’t seem to coincide with the basic concept of MTV’s programming.

In any case, I’m glad that MTV has decided in recent years to run seemingly obligational, horribly contrived messages to their younger viewers preaching responsibility. It fits right in.

Now, who’s up for a wet t-shirt contest in Cabo? Spring Break is right around the corner.

    If over sexing Hanna Montana is wrong I wouldn’t want to be right.

    It’s not worth it to watch South Park on MTV. They cut out just enough that it isn’t worth it. For example, in the episode “Canceled” they won’t show the executives sucking each others jagons.

    This is from the network that is gives us Jersey Shore, featuring some guy called The Situation who likes to rub his abs and chicks getting decked by bros at the bar.

    Just saying.
