Is MTV lying to my face-space?

Does MTV have a partnership with MySpace? I keep noticing that they’re young reality stars reference MySpace and it seems so wrong. I mean, what kid uses MySpace anymore? Hell, what anyone uses MySpace anymore? So when I saw this scene that just played out on 16 and Pregnant and I had an A HA moment. If you notice, the girl cleary starts to say “Facebook” and then corrects it to MySpace.

Watch:

Her quick correction, plus the eye movement (up and to the left) made it clear to me that it was an obvious lie.

I’m assuming that MySpace struck up a deal with MTV so that these kids will say that they’re using their social networking site. A quick Google search didn’t give me much to go on. Does anyone know if that’s the case? I don’t know why I even care, but I was pretty tickled to catch that goof up. Just call me Megan Lightman. 😉

    I ended up at your blog through like 8 degrees of Bacon, but since I’m a bit of a media nerd, I thought it was only fair that I confirm your suspicions. Yes, MTV and MySpace are owned by the same conglomerate. It’s all Rupert Murdoch, sneaky bastard that he is.

    Good catch!
