MTV TV Series “Skins” – Most Dangerous Show Ever?

A new MTV show “skins” started in January 17 with 3.3 million viewers, 2.7 million of them within 12-34 age range, making it the largest show launch in MTV History. Show creator Bryan Eisley called it “a very simple and in fact rather old-fashioned television series about the lives and loves of teenagers, how they get through high school, how they deal with their friends, and also how they circumnavigate some of the complications of sex, relationships, educations, parents, drugs and alcohol.”

The Parent Television Council calls it “the most dangerous program that has ever been foisted on your children.”

The Social Network – Business Ethics in Movies

“…virtually all of the practices that nearly wrecked the global economy back in 2008 were legal—all of which goes to prove that just because something is legal doesn’t make it ethical or right… So the question isn’t “why?” but “why not?” If the only thing standing between you and millions, even billions, is other people’s disapproval, why not do what you want to do?”

False Security in Diversity
As you flip through 3000 channels, listen to numerous radio stations, and cruise around the Internet – you may be thinking how great it is to have access to so many different ideas and shows. But the truth is that through years of mergers and acquisitions, very few media corporations control most of all that we see, hear, and take in giving them vast control over our culture and the way we view the world.

Internet Speeds Getting Faster, Asia Leads the Way

Internet speed around the world continues to become faster as technologies advance. That is not a surprise. However the speed difference between a country like Korea and the United States are quite startling.

South Korea, who already has the fastest connection in the world, continues to increase their national internet speed at the fastest rate as well. Korea owns 6 of the top 10 fastest cities in Asia and as a country averages 14.6 Mbps. Compare that to the United States where only 4.4% of users are above 10 Mbps…

What were the Top Searches in 2009 on Yahoo & Bing?

Google still reigns the search world with 65% search share (data from comScore Oct). Yahoo currently holds shy of 19% search share though that figure is expected to rise once the Yahoo/ Microsoft deal is complete.

There isn’t much to say here, so let me just present the data released by Yahoo. Note that these are searches on Yahoo & Bing. This does not include Google.

You’ll find the data quite revealing about what our culture truly cares about.

You’re Teaching My Child What? – Dr. Miriam Grossman

“The sex-ed lobby has always claimed it was all about health—teaching kids how to stay safe. But in reality, their goal was not preventing disease, pregnancy, and emotional distress. It’s about indoctrinating them into a radical ideology—sexual freedom….

What’s the result of this teaching? One in four American girls now has a sexually transmitted disease.” – Breakpoint

– Are sex educators not providing the latest medical facts?
– What are the latest findings on the effects of living with sexual freedom?
– What are those scientific facts! Am I in danger?!

Euthanasia: Naturalism vs the Sanctity of Life

Is Truth Relative? Do we have a “right” to do as we please?

Is abortion wrong because the child is a human being and no one has the right to kill a child? Or should abortion be considered a valid option because it is in the right of the mother to determine whether they can or want the child? How about the right of a person to kill oneself? Do old sickly people have the right to end their own lives? Can other people assist them? Stop them? The debates continue but underlying these discussions is a much deeper battle: the battle in the validity of the sanctity of life.

“More Beautiful You” by Jonny Diaz

Here in Clean Cut Media, we often discuss the media’s harmful influence on young girls. For example.
– 50% of girls already engage in negative activities such as due to self-image issues.
– 7 out of 10 girls believe they are not measuring up in some way especially in terms of looks.

This song “More Beautiful You” was written by Jonny Diaz, a young Christian man, who desired to tell women not to buy into the lies of the media and that what makes them beautiful is not external but within their heart. It’s been climbing the music charts and create a lot of buzz because of the truth in the message. It is a beautiful piece of work and the lyrics are well written.
