Well that was stupid. “MTV’s Elect This presents our elite political robo-pundits, giving you their opinions on gun control.” breitbart.com reports that “Among the campaign’s digital video series will be a ‘Robo-Roundtable’ that uses animatronic versions of alligators, parrots and robots to discuss issues. Millennial voters can tweet @electthis with their opinions on hot-button issues, and the tweets will be used to voice the robots.” And who, pray tell, is behind this, this, whatever it is? Not the NRA. Here’s the list . . .
MTV partnered with numerous progressive organizations in launching the campaign, including the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, GLAAD, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), Rock the Vote, Everytown for Gun Safety, FWD.us, NextGen Climate, Change.org and Define American. Other partners include the Truman National Security Project and the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN).
My God, how far we’ve fallen. Well, the mainstream media, anyway.
