The 2012 MTV Video Music Awards tonight were moved back an hour so that everyone could switch over and watch President Obama's Democratic National Convention speech. I wonder how many people actually made the switch, or just stayed on to watch the immediate replay of the awards. It's been years since MTV actually participated deeply in political coverage and voter activism on air.

Mayor Nutter's Chief of Staff Everette Gillison says any claim that the city is disrespectful of the men and women in uniform is just plain false. The appeal is now in the hands of Common Pleas Court, although there's no word on its... Read More

Sean Penn is one of the only celebrities that kept raising money for Haiti once everyone else ceased.

He just finished putting together a charity Gala at the Cannes Film Festival in France which raised millions of dollars in proceeds.
