Remember former MTV VJ Adam Curry? He apparently agrees (at least, in part) with the piece I wrote against MTV on Monday, the 30th birthday of the cable network, Monday. Yesterday, he tweeted–quoting from and linking to–my column on the topic, and it was retweeted by several of his followers. (Join me on Twitter.) See the tweet below.
When I wrote about MTV’s 30th birthday, I mentioned (as I have on MTV’s 25th and 20th birthdays) that even some of MTV’s original VJs–particularly, Martha Quinn and Nina Blackwood–said they wouldn’t let their kids watch MTV.
Looks like Curry sees it for the garbage heap it’s become, too. He’s a popular early pioneer of podcasts and calls himself “The Podfather.” But, while he is smart, don’t take this as any indication that I agree with his politics. Curry endorsed Ron Paul in 2008, and he refers to America as “Gitmo Nation West.”
