This eventually lead to the breaking of racial barriers on the channel but the same people remained in charge... I have a feeling they never forgave MJ for this, and for exceeding their heroes. Sure, they profited from MJs success (hence the MJ days and programs) but they ridiculed and ignored him every given opportunity.

    Plus they even refuse to listen to Michael's suggestion of removing that disrespectful video of Eminem which should not be named off the channel. MTV's not the same anyways and they suck.

    There are some who fell for the trick but I think there are even more who begins to see through the obvious. And that's why there's a gap between major public reaction (rise of online streams, Thriller celebrations at Halloween etc) and MSM/radio/TV ban - as you said, the "the public has spoken" and doesn't care about the "gatekeepers".
    I agree and he is played on the radio all the time there I live.

    I know that, but I think because of Thriller people started to listen and enjoying MTV much more. I think they owe that to MJ. But no, they treated him like shit especially now, but when he died they were so fake, with the tributes they made to him... Right now that doesn't matter anymore and all they do is ignoring him and pretending he doesn't exist.

    Kurt Ludor was a hater. He always wanted Madonna to rule MTV. He was also the editor of Rolling stone at the time.

    I think the name is Loder, but yep (I remember him being a "rock fan", but I guess he was happy with anyone but MJ). And don't get me started on Rolling Stone, bunch of haters and many with a feeling of cultural superiority. I'm still surprised they aren't called out yet on that behaviour. Their covers of MJ are a good example: one with McCartney (so not a solo pic), one (quite racist and belittling) cartoon, 2 only after his death - out of 8 total.

    RS was quite successful at spreading the "rock is the only artistic genre" narrative for decades (70-80-90s) and did a lot of damage with dismissing others. The irony is I actually love said rock stuff, but it certainly not the only meaningful music, and the agenda was always obvious and very annoying.

    I'm so pleased I live where I do, my local radio station plays at least 3 songs a day by MJ, if not more, especially the DJ that is on at 10am, he must love Michael cause he always playing his music

    Where I live at in the United States (SOUTH), MJ was never moved; in fact, I did get on here or searched for MJ info, I would know nothing about MJ being banned and LN would be just more trash someone want to talk about MJ. Plus MJLive came here in Sept and was great and packed.
