Techno Terror Video

It's amazing how far we've come when some music star making a music video possibly objecting to war is actually possibly going to be big news, and worthy of more than 4 seconds of discussion.

I remember when Genesis, hardly a political band, did their video of a half-aware puppet Reagan leading the world to nuclear war. I think it got a few murmurs, but it ran 24/7 on MTV for years. I wonder if that same MTV will refuse to show Madonna's video on the ground that it's too political. I mean, who knows what's in it - I'm just going from Drudge's description.
