Original Source From the moment Alexandra and Vanessa started speaking, the boos outweighed anything close to cheers, and the reaction turned worse when the daughters asked the VIACOM youth to vote for their father. So shocked by the reaction, the taller of the two daughters tried to 'shhhhhh' her peers to no avail.


This is really suprising to me that a hollywood filled, young crowd would boo Kerry's daughters. It seems like that would be a very left leaning audience. I didn't watch the VMA's and don't plan to, can anyone that did verify this? And isn't this a violation of equal time?

I wonder if the "Busch"
twins would have gotten the same reaction, their exploits relate them to the MTV crowd quite nicely.

This could be a statement that the notoriously left leaning youth of America isn't buying into the BS of it all any more. On the other hand it could just be apathetic MTVer's who just want to cause a scene.

MTV is trying to drum up 20 million people under the age of 30 to vote this year. www.mtv.com...

Surprising as you said as MTV is very left leaning. on the other hand, maybe the crowd was tired of being used by MTV to promote its political agenda.

In regards to fair time, did they give out an award or deliver a political message? If they just gave out an award and spared the crowd a political lecture, then it may not violate the fair time issue

The crowd can be very left-leaning/pro-Kerry AND still have booed the Kerry girls...


Why?

Because many people in the audience might take music and art very seriously. Though the MTV awards aren't the Grammy's, they're still a meeting of artists and fans. If the crowd.... even a liberal crowd... felt that their show was being co-opted for the sake of a political agenda, they may have felt violated and cheated.

CNN said the Bush twins got boo'ed too. They appeared on video feed.

But it wasn't unanimous for either. I saw people giving a standing ovation in the video for the Kerry girls trying to out clap boo'ers.

CNN didn't show the Bush girls getting boo'ed so I can't say. They just mentioned it.

Oh CNN, you can't outfox FOX news, so just give it up...

You know they would have been out doing Little Kim on P. Didy & 50 Cent!!


As a side note: has anyone actually looked into their college life? I mean they entered at the start of Bush's term & graduated this May. Neither struck me as that studious or workman like.

Yep.

If Kerry went on onstage with a "My Fellow Young Americas" speech trying to promote his political agenda in a NOFX concert, id boo him & NOFX for pulling that stunt.

From my living room it sounded like there was applause and jeers for both pairs of sisters.

I don't think it was appropriate to boo them in either case. MTV has been lauded on numerous occasions for their campaigns to get people to vote. Both the Kerry and Bush sisters were on TV with their primary message being to vote. What is the problem with that? It's not the first time MTV has had such campaigns, only this time they had the children of the candidates on.

So what was the problem?

Is it because the segment didn't involve Paris Hilton running around with a Chihuahua sticking out of her rear end?

If these people were genuinely bothered by a moment of brain activity then I wonder if perhaps there was something to the whole lead paint theory.

The Kerry girls were actually being polite, trying to get the crowd to stop booing the Bush girls on the screen, but you won't find that little fact in the news.
Neo-con news, it's just not for FOX anymore!

I don't think the boos resulted from the the Kerry and/or Bush girls suggestion to get out and vote, and I think it resulted from the "vote for MY father!" angle, as well as the fact that people were there to see the music and awards show, not hear about politics.

Maybe the reaction would have been better if they showed more cleavage.

I think I would of been more entertained by Alexandra showing her boobies again

I have to agree with those who think the boos stemmed from the insertion of politics into this non-political event. I, like many of you and them, are tired of of this farse we know as US politics interjecting into every aspect of life. Look, if you support a party regardless of their actions and have to resort to defending an obvious and blatant mis-deed at the cost of your own credibility, then you, my friend are the puppet. I love how both sides accuse the other of being a puppet and then run back to their own corner of delusion. Politics and hypocrisy go hand in hand. Isn't it time we spat both out like the vile bile they are?

My first suggestion is one term limits for every elected official. Executive, Legislative, Judicial, dog catcher...I don't care. Too many people make a career of lying and cheating. At some point and time, everyone in their lives needs to make a positive,productive contribution.

Having watched this it was interesting as well since Carson Daley mentioned the Bush Twins just as the Kerry girls came out. My family was speculating the initial booing was directed at the Bush girls and that most of the crowd maybe did not realize who was actually on the stage. That is what we saw live but then who really knows. This was a show that seemd to bleep more words than were allowed to air, hard to tell what was going one for sure. Either way, all four did a good job handling the comments (well the Bush twins was recorded not live, probably a smart thing).

Maybe the crowd were tired of having bull# policital biased messages forced down their throughts just like from all other mainstream media.

Yeah I'm going to side with the tired of politcal ad and messages on MTV. MTV is for music not politics, CNN and Fox are for that. These people probally wanted singers on stage performing than the daughters of a politician trying to get them to vote for their daddy, wheter it be Bush's or Kerry's kids.

I watched them do thier thing. It did seem as if the Kerry girls got booed alot more. Perhaps it's because they came off as very uptight b****es. They looked angry when they spoke and were getting mad at the crowd. It was real awkward just to watch them.

But leave it to MTV to whore themselves out so much that the people got so sick of them with the politics of the show that they booed the candidates daughters.

you'll see how the merchants of cool will casually transform into the propaganda machines they were created for. Mainstream = grounds prone to subliminal messaging.


and as far as your sig, its VERY inaccuarate.

I would not be suprised if half of the pop artists today had sublimal messages in them ala They Live. Its a perfect ground to brainwash teens.

The audience/crowd was booing the feed of the Bush twins that was behind them, and not the Kerry twins.

Then it could be the fact that they threw politicing into the MVA's.
