Echoing the thoughts of many who have witnessed the station's gradual metamorphosis from being a destination spot for music fans to "the channel for spoiled teenagers and grisly compound fractures," MTV is reportedly having a big internal meeting next Monday to finally answer the question, "What does M stand for?" According to one employee, the halls of the studio's New York office are covered in brightly colored posters bearing the slogan, which many smartasses have already defaced with their own answers (like a picture of Ricardo Montalban). The fact that the meeting promises champagne indicates that whatever the answer is, it's something to celebrate. Could it be that MTV is finally going to do away with the pesky burden of always having to find a way to fit music into its already packed schedule? After all, getting rid of videos once and for all would really free things up for more episodes of My Super Sweet 16.
