MTV isn't a news channel. And looking at their schedule, it obviously
has nothing to do with music either.

At the very least, they could have run a crawl line about it.

They think prescription drugs might have been involved. She might have
drowned in the bathtub.

You're right. What would somebody whose job is to schedule the weekly
Hills marathon know about music anyway? Somewhere in the late 90's the
M stopped standing for Music and started standing for Mediocrity.

MTV isn't a news station but for all we know MTV is rushing to put together a
marathon retrospective of Houston music videoss in tribute just like BET and
Centric ran marathon repeats of "Soul Train" for Don Cornelius last week.

Don't be silly. Just another idiot who killed herself through drug abuse. Nothing to write
home about.

She shouldn't be too sad, she had to have seen it coming.

The problem is, you cannot help people that do not want help. Calling out
the last decade or so of Whitney Houston's life as 'slow motion suicide' is
an accurate description of the situation.

I wish her family and friends will be able to pull out of this okay.
Hopefully nothing will happen to her daughter...http://

I haven't watched much MTV since, oh, 1984 or whenever it was they
stopped being about MUSIC and starting being about CRAP, but was
Houston ever an MTV staple? Her music is really more VH1 material
(again, when they were about music and not crap) than MTV material so
I wouldn't expect them to drop the airing of their usual non-music
offerings.

I'm sure they'll come up with some sort of tribute once the weekday
crew is in.

What did they do when Kurt Cobain died? I don't think it was wall to
wall, but they were still playing music.

========================================

MTV stopped being a "music" network years ago. The "M" stands for money
now.
