Reason #284746 of Why MTV Sucks!

So it's the day of the so much talked about Live 8 concert. You are pumped up about the prospect of seeing all that rock royalty reunited for a unique occasion, and a good cause.

You've been hearing for weeks about this event, and MTV/ VH1, Viacom have spent lots of cash making sure you were aware of the concert and its significance, in case you were going to miss it.

So I tune in for some of the main acts, Sting, U2, Linkin Park, awesome live shows.

Then the very much expected reunion of Pink Floyd. I mean, this is huge (and I'm not a the greatest Pink Floyd fan, but I appreciate their music and their significance in rock history). So here they are... Roger Waters, and David Gilmour on the same stage! And they are not trying to kill each other! Wow!

They are starting to play what some consider one of the best rock songs in ever made.... "Comfortably Numb." At that point you get two idiotic MTV anchors on screen talking over the song (which should be considered a sin and a crime), telling us about the cool Pink Floyd T-shits they've seen people wearing around Hyde Park in London. Yak, yak, yak, yakkity yak! After I screamed at the TV screen and threw soft objects at it in the illusory attempt to make them shut the hell up, the producers of the MTV live broadcast of "Live 8" decided to take us back to the rendition of "Comfortably Numb."

Just a few extra notes... and they go to commercial... in the middle of the song!

Unforgivable. Simply unforgivable.

Rove behind the outing of Plame?

Sources say yes.

Apparently several witnesses (counting Chris Matthews) are claiming Karl Rove himself was behind the outing, after the release of the confidential information by Time journalist Cooper. Here are some articles on the case:

Rove Blew CIA Agent's Cover
Lawrence O'Donnell

Karl Rove frog marched?

Pass the popcorn!

(On edit) PS: while this is all great and fun, the Rude Pundit reminds us to keep cool and not get all excited about the prospect, as this bunch has been masterful at covering their own asses and twisting the law to avoid that their pasty asses end up in jail.
