Cliché #3011: Commenting on how MTV doesn't play music videos anymore.

Let it go already, people. Like movie trailers, videos are all available online nowadays. Moreover, VH1 was born "Video Hits One" and no one seems to care that it no longer plays any hit videos. Why is it such an issue that "Music Television" (words which the network consciously deleted from its logo a while back) airs non-music-related programming? The fact of the matter is that no other television channel caters specifically to the 12-24 demographic and does it so well. MTV doesn't play videos anymore because it doesn't have to. Kids will tune in regardless of whatever dreck it chooses to air. Even those who hate MTV still watch it. People need to stop viewing MTV as an acronym and simply consider it a broadcast paradigm.
