No one has appreciated, encouraged, perhaps even plotted Miley Cyrus making a clown out of herself more than MTV. So they posted this little Thank You card on their Buzzworthy blog when it was reported that she was beat at the last minute in Time’s “Person of the Year” polling by two Middle Eastern politicians. (This poll has zero integrity.)

MTV's Rachel Brodsky oozed that the former Disney Channel child star's third-place finish was “something to be VERY, very proud of, but... but... SHE DESERVED IT SO MUCH....Needless to say, we were really, really pulling for Miley. But such is life! She'll always be OUR Person Of The Year!” So they made a list of all the reasons she deserved it, mostly for acting out:



The tawdry sexual dancing of Miley Cyrus on the 2013 edition of MTV’s Video Music Awards has been denounced by nearly everyone – conservatives, liberals, and libertines (who flunked it for lacking “hotness"). That theme is exhausted. Let’s shift the discussion back to where it belongs: the cultural cesspool that is MTV.

Every year, MTV prepares sleazy awards-show stunts like this to acquire buzz for itself. There’s Madonna and Britney Spears having a long onstage kiss; Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis grabbing each other’s private parts on stage; and Sacha Baron Cohen “accidentally” hanging upside down with his bare buttocks exposed right in the face of the rapper Eminem.



Editor’s note: the video after the jump may offend some people.

Dear Miley Cyrus: We get it already. You’re not a kid anymore. That Teddy Bear-to-porn maven motif at the 2013 MTV VMAs was so unsubtle even the kind of people who like the VMAs couldn’t miss it. Ditto the latex bikini and relentless “twerking.” Besides, you’re belaboring the point. It’s been abundantly clear for some time you killed Hannah Montana and you’re pole-dancing on her grave.

But maybe you could dial back the porn factor just a touch? Sure, masturbating yourself and Robin Thicke with a foam #1 finger shocked Will Smith & co. in the immediacy of the moment.



MTV is always crossing the boundaries of taste to build a “buzz” around their youth-oriented shows. On Tuesday night's episode of their “reality” show "Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life," the sleazy pop singer decided to urinate into a plastic bottle in front of her friends on a car trip and take a sip. "It was really gross," this genius concluded.

This could just a faked-for-ratings stunt. But our friends at the Parents Television Council found this was a singularly disgusting lesson of why consumers should get a choice of cable channels, so they can dump MTV and stop subsizing the pee-drinking sleaze:



What’s more embarrassing, hateful, ignorant and racist than a “right-winger”? Not much, according to MTV. The youth oriented network’s reality show “True Life” ran an episode called I hate the government last Friday which detailed the lives of three “right-wingers.”

The episode description reads: “Amelia, Caleb and Andrew are three right-wingers who despise the very thing that holds our country together, the U.S. government.”



Appearing on the Conan O'Brien show on Wednesday night, talk show host Chelsea Handler started laughing at the most inopportune time. Judging by the somber look on O'Brien's face, the comedienne hadn't just cracked a joke. No, the unfortunate reason for her giggling was in remembrance of a child who was deprived the chance to live. 

Asked to recollect her adolescence, Handler couldn't resist oversharing. Her rebellious lifestyle resulted in an unplanned pregnancy as a teenager, but apparently there was nothing to think twice about. That's when the laughing started. She tried to stop herself, admitting the subject wasn't funny. Yet she continued, trying to justify the humor of her abortion by saying her baby would've been biracial.

MTV really wants young people to head to the voting booth in droves. This would be a good thing if MTV execs didn’t blatantly schill for lefty ideology in their new “Power of 12” promo.

The new get-out-the-vote ad aired at the 2012 Video Music Awards, and hawked the slogan the “power of 45 million young people will decide the outcome of the 2012 election.” It featured a series of images projected behind one-word statements such as “Patriotism,” “Movement,” and “Marriage.”



He’s a guy that spews hate against Christians, Republicans, and even other gay people who think differently than he. He’s asserted that “monogamy is ridiculous” and “unnatural.” He’s remarked that the vagina is a “hole that sh**ts babies.”

And MTV thinks he’s the ideal person to teach adolescents about sex.



On Thursday, CNN anchor Carol Costello credited Dan Gainor, the head of the Culture and Media Institute, as a leader in the charge against a new MTV series, which was supposed to follow virgins seeking to lose their virginity. Costello read Gainor’s quote on air: “This is part of the media attempt to mock people who have morals and to treat virginity like a disease that must be cured. She observed that “conservative critics fought back” against the show, forcing its cancellation.

The MTV series, called “My First,” was going to follow virgins preparing to lose their virginity. The casting call for the series read: “We’re looking for adults who are ready to go all the way. Let MTV come along your journey… as you try to lose your virginity!”

Lady Gaga is at it again, trying to offend to get attention. Her latest song, which she leaked on Christmas Day to listeners, “Stuck on F***in You," is another effort to glorify casual sex and profanity.  

Huffington Post reported positively on Gaga’s latest effort. “Think of her as a raw, hyper-sexualized Santa Claus, slinking down the chimney to mingle with the flames of your yule log. Lady Gaga's new song, "Stuck on F*ckin' You," eschews her usual synthesizers and high production for a simple blues guitar crawl and loud claps that pair with a growly drawl for maximum aural seduction,” the site wrote (video follows with commentary, serious vulgarity warning):



Once upon a time, women were considered the “fairer sex,” the “better half.” Stewardesses were talented and beautiful. Wives were softer, more gentle. Men fought for their honor. Feminism crushed all of that. It is a testimony to their movement that in today’s post-feminist entertainment media, part of what makes television so corrosive and sour is just how piggish the women have become.

The latest study from the Parents Television Council drives this concept home by going to the ugly center of pop culture: MTV “reality” programming. After studying entire seasons of four MTV shows, the PTC concludes: “Females talked about sex acts more than men, talked about sex more graphically than men, mentioned sexual body parts more than men, and talked about intercourse and preliminaries to intercourse more than men.”



Vice President of Business and Culture Dan Gainor appeared on the January 24 broadcast of Headline News' “The Joy Behar Show" to discuss the raunchy new teen drama from MTV “Skins.” Gainor, who appeared on a panel with Tina Wells, CEO of Buzz Marketing Group and Rachel Sklar, editor at large for Mediaite.com, highlighted MTV’s blatant push for ratings and lack of consequences on “Skins.”
