MTV Imperialism

It's modern-day imperialism as MTV moves in on my demographic (registration required). Sorry folks, but I was never too thrilled about media outlets trying to appeal to my community by defining for me what my community is gonna be into, and I'm definitely not thrilled about the idea that, in this article, MTV execs seriously considered a comic who was going to basically do a caricatured Apu, of Kwik-E-Mart fame, for his MTV Desi V.J. personality. I shudder to think what "MTV Chi" has to offer. I also wonder, given this naming scheme, if some moron in the MTV higher-ups will one day actually try to sell "MTV Jap" to us.
