well you are twisting here. I didn't claim anyone stated MTV/VH1 as favorable to Michael. I said "somewhat portray them more positive towards Michael."
allow me to explain what I meant: What would be the most positive way to air TDACAU? No ban at all, right? Both videos playing freely at all day long. Which would be followed by censorship, temporary ban and full long time ban.
So a ban is the most negative thing that could happen to any song/video. Being just censored or never ever banned at all is a more positive thing than being banned.
That's what I meant by portraying them as more positive towards Michael. If anyone believes MTV/VH1 or any other channel banned / censored Michael's songs unfairly, MTV/VH1 should be named and shamed - and that's what I believe the author is doing here. Shaming the parties who resulted in such ban/censorship. Denying what MTV/VH1 did only helps to portray them more positively and with less fault.
I get it that you don't believe MTV/VH1 banned TDCAU. I believe they did. Even if it was just censorship - such as airing video late at night- it wasn't okay in my book. I don't want to see them to get a free pass . So I'm glad that there is such a positive article calling all those parties on their role in "banning" TDCAU.
I feel I made myself extremely clear in this regard and majority will understand my position and as I said before I have no interest in engaging in any personal jabs with you. So I'll continue to ignore them while focusing on the discussion.
You felt you needed to clarify your response (quite lengthy too) and that alone says quite a bit.
