A multi-billion dollar corporation which controls a huge portion of network television on the air today, including, but not limited to: MTV, BET, VH1, Nickelodeon, and Comedy Central. Viacom's influence on the ideals of Americans ranging in age from 6 to mid-20s is enormous. Viacom is methodically eliminating independent media organizations in an effort to monopolize American media. Viacom is a "special interest group" to US presidents, meaning Viacom essentially bribes government officials to turn the other way as it takes hold on more and more media.
Man, I wonder what would be on if Viacom weren't around. Oh well. Guess I'll go watch TRL.
