MTV Employees Plan Walk-Out

I guess strikes are contagious. When MTV presented its freelancers with a new plan that includes no 401K, reduced health benefits and no paid vacation (they’re freelancers, isn’t that what they’re supposed to get?), they decided to stage a walk-out on Monday, and they’re trying to get the whole company involved.

The VMAs Are Here

The MTV Video Music Awards are fast approaching, and the nominees have been released. The best group category proves once again how tragically out-of-touch with the under-24 culture I am becoming.
