MTV Takes Away The Music

No, this isn't some snide commentary. It's the truth. They're taking the words "music television" from their logo. I think everyone does suspect, though, that it's got something to do with the fact that MTV rarely plays music anymore. Some poor intern for Paste even forced himself to watch 24 hours straight of the God-forsaken station just to see how much music it actually included. Spoiler alert: Next to none. And when it did, it was often in the middle of the night or wee hours of the morning. Who needs the M in MTV anyway?
