    This is the email I wrote to the producers of the new, MTV smut show called "Skins," featuring MINORS...

    Yes, what you're producing is kiddie porn, and regardless to the outcome as you being investigated for that, you are also guilty of polluting the minds of today's youths. When you could produce something wholesome and/or inspiring, you instead, time and again, produce nothing but filth, smut and garbage, and this time you've pushed it way to far. I hope you are investigated, tried, convicted and shut down. You are highly complicit in the degradation of morality and decency in our society today, and I believe you do it for no other reason than money. You should be ashamed of what you do. You are the cable channel HUSTLER magazine for teens.

    And this is the PATHETIC reply I got. These people don't get it, and they take ZERO responsibility for what they do, and the TRASH they pump todays youths head full of...

    We are writing in response to your email to MTV about our new scripted series "Skins." We understand not every show is intended for all audiences but it's never our intention to offend anyone.

    We review all of our shows and work with all of our producers on an ongoing basis to ensure our shows comply with applicable laws as well as with our responsibilities to our viewers. We also have taken numerous steps to alert viewers to the strong subject matter so that they can choose for themselves whether it is appropriate.

    MTV has a long history of creating shows that break new ground. In the case of “Skins,” it’s a scripted series that is created and written with the direct involvement of a group of young people who help write the episodes. We believe the power of “Skins” is its ability to tell authentic stories that seek to portray teen life today in all its complexity. The show’s goal is not to stir up controversy, but to tell stories that address real-world issues confronting teens in a frank and honest way.

    Sincerely,

    MTV Viewer Services

    That looks like a form response.

    There wasn't as much skin as the title implies. No doubt the show has created controversy, but I think the protests from family groups are drawing in viewers better than any advertisement could do.

    The real crime is that the channel still clings to the Music Television name. :D

    With all this outrage, I guess MTV can save quite a bit of money on the promotional campaign for this show.

    Ummm, mouth breather, if you haven't a clue what the thread is about, you're even more dense than I thought.

    And I guess since you think only the "right" had objections to all the sex and skin shown engaged in by teenagers, then evidently according to you the left is completely void of morals. Lovely.
