The Internet Killed The Video Star
It's pretty much true. You constantly have the statement that MTV doesn't play music videos anymore by anyone who is old enough to remember it actually playing music videos. Well, here's a pretty good explanation as to why that is no longer the case.
This is exactly it. It's the same reason that TLC, the channel that was formally THE LEARNING CHANNEL shows television like Honey Boo Boo. It's because we, as a people, have downgraded into levels of stupidity that are beyond believable. It's just the way it goes. Dead with it. Or, you know, use the outlets you do have - namely this internet thing that doesn't seem like it's going anyway - to better inform yourself and actually watch and find the things you do want to see.
You know, opposed to just bitching about what something is trying to show you.
