Does MTV Own You (Or Your Teenager)?

“At MTV, we don’t shoot for the 14-year-olds, we own them.”
(Bob Pittman, creator of the MTV Network.)

Well, there's a few teenagers who MTV doesn't own...except as enemies.

Today there's a protest going on outside MTV's corporate headquarters in New York City. That protest is organized by Stand True, a group of young Americans dedicated to fighting for the sanctity of life and for the promotion of Christian virtues in our culture. At this demonstration, the group will be praying and handing out flyers with hip and hopeful challenges for young people to take back their lives from such would-be "mind'masters" as MTV.

For more information, including a PDF version of the flyer to be distributed, follow this link.

And for the news item about the protest which caught my attention today, thanks to the Generations for Life web site.
