MTV: TEEN SMUT PEDDLERS...

Conservative watchdog group Parents Television Council blasted MTV as "smut peddlers" Tuesday, accusing the music cable network of targeting young viewers with oversexed programming.

I HAVE BEEN COMPLAINING ABOUT MTV FOR YEARS, SO THIS IS REALLY JUST THE LATEST EXAMPLE OF THEM BEING CAUGHT RED-HANDED PEDDLING SEXUALITY AND VIOLENCE TO TEENS. IN ADDITION, MTV REGULARLY PROMOTES "ALTERNATIVE LIFESTYLES" TO TO TEENS (THEIR PRIMARY AUDIENCE IS ACTUALLY AGE 8 - 21). FOR INSTANCE, ON THEIR REALITY SHOW, "THE REAL WORLD" THEY ARE TWO GAY'S OUT OF SEVEN TOTAL STARRING IN THE SHOW... IS THAT "THE REAL WORLD"? DOES THAT REPRESENT AMERICA?

The PTC found fault with the teen-targeted network based on an examination of 171 hours of programming that aired the week of March 20 last year, during its annual "Spring Break" celebration. The analysis, contained in a report titled "MTV Smut Peddlers," spotted 13 sexual scenes per hour in MTV's reality series, as well as 32 instance of foul language per hour in its music videos.
