Sooner or later we have to stop supporting networks that promote the poisoning of our youth.

First of all why aren't these children in school? Second, if parents don't care enough about who's mending their kids mind why should these networks? It's sad that children end up being victimized by the videos and lyrics they come to know to well. Television is raising the children instead of the parents because they're to busy these days, Lord forbid they find out about topix, talk about a new breed of haters.

I hate when we feed into this type of media trash. At work, we have only one common television and most of the people there want to watch this, rather than something educational or just plain good TV. I love
CSI but it gets booted by the rump shaker shows. I admit to watching Flav...but I do not understand watching it when a debate between Clinton and Obama is on. We do have better choices.

"On VH1's hit Flavor of Love 2 this summer, one of the women vying for rapper Flavor Flav's attention has an accident and defecates on the floor of a mansion, albeit off camera. Elsewhere, an episode of MTV2's animated Where My Dogs At? depicted a Snoop Dogg look-alike walking two black women on leashes and then cleaning up their poop."

Completely the F Down-like in figuratively "Dead as a Doornail" Down-program terminated..that kinda thing...:O)

"In the premium-cable corner, Showtime's new fall comedy from Damon Wayans, The Underground, has sketches featuring a woman's talking genitalia (titled “The Real Vagina Monologues”) and “balls-out” jeans. HBO's now-cancelled sitcom Lucky Louie had actors graphically simulating having sex, masturbating in a closet and using the “F” word."
....Hmmmm...Damon Wayans..why am I not surprised??

Waaaaaaaay Back...

No but you can watch the boondocks episode about BET that never aired on www.abmgts.blogspot.com . Bob Johnson never let his son or daughter watch BET

BET and MTV both are H.A.M.s. But I do have to admit that I tune into MTV for the Real World/Road Rules challenges, and BET for Hell Date and that ghetto show College Hill. lol

We can't expect a television network to raise our children. Most tv's come with parental block, both my kids have cable in their rooms. MTV, BET, HBO are all blocked. I even have a passcode for the Playstation. There's tons of violence on TV why are we focusing on MTV and BET like they are some new demon spawn? The true reality is negligent parents who use the TV as a babysitter and don't monitor what their children absorb.

Exactly, we always look to blame outside factors but the bottom line is that parents and parenting is the key. It's not just BET and MTV either. You could be watching a game in the middle of the day and you'll get a commercial talking about erectile dysfunction or some other sexually based commercial. There is just an overall decline of basic morals and values and being a good and responsible parent is what is needed to combat the many forces that are trying to get at our children.

LOL....yeah that's true. I'll tell you that TVOne and BETJ are great substitutes for the original BET channel. The programs are more interesting on those channels.

I am 100 percent sure mtv jams have not been on in over a decade. And both of these shows have become nothing but softcore porno/thug networks. They used to be so fun and innocent back in the day but now at 27 I think I am too young to view some of the filth they showcase.
