The Philadelphia suburbs that surround its halls of Eddie Bauer, Foot Locker, and smooth-jazz Muzak are among the places that may decide the 2004 presidential election. more...  2 Comments

MTV Blocks The Vote! or, How To Get Kicked Out Of The TRL Pen

Absinthe | (from the Open Newswire): MTV Bans Code Pink from their streetside TRL pen.

Today Code Pink attempted a Liberty Vigil in front of MTV's studio on the corner of 45th Street and 7th Avenue in NYC. We timed our action to coincide with the broadcast of Total Request Live, a show that airs at 5 PM on MTV and often features cameras panning the street below as fans cheer. We stand amongst the fans on the sidewalk, dressed as pink Statue of Liberties with our message on signs we hold up. Originally the plan was to get young people to the polls, but with Viacom's (MTV's parent company) recent decision to ban an advertisement from Compare Decide Vote, we decided to put Viacom & MTV in the hot seat.
