MTV, which used to stand for Music Television, is no longer giving a source of music news and information on the Internet. MTV.com has been converted to another face for Paramount’s streaming service.

Parent company Paramount, formerly Viacom, has tossed twenty plus years of news archives. All that’s left is a placeholder site for reality shows. The M in MTV – music — is gone, and so is all the reporting and all the journalism performed by music and political writers ever written. It’s as if MTV never existed. (It’s the same for VH1.com, all gone.)
