An Open Letter to the Media and Hollywood on Miley Cyrus

Dear Media and Hollywood,

Stop criticizing Miley Cyrus's butt-grinding MTV Video Music Award show. She is merely conforming to and mimicking the licentious culture you created.

I'm not the morality police. I believe in free expression. My point is not even to critique our shameless culture but rather to point out your glaring hypocrisy.

You are right that Cyrus's performance was awkward and seemingly unorchestrated.

But stop acting holier-than-thou by lambasting her for wearing a scantily clad costume, gyrating and twerking wildly on stage, especially when you make a living broadcasting and glorifying such mindless smut.
