Genocide in Darfur: MTV v. The White House

Who have been more outspoken about genocide in Darfur? MTV or The White House.

..... No, It is not the White House!
Mr. Bush hasn't even taken a position on the Darfur Accountability Act and other bipartisan legislation sponsored by Senators Jon Corzine and Sam Brownback to put pressure on Sudan. Does Mr. Bush really want to preserve his neutrality on genocide?

Indeed, MTV is raising the issue more openly and powerfully than our White House. (Its mtvU channel is also covering Darfur more aggressively than most TV networks.) It should be a national embarrassment that MTV is more outspoken about genocide than our president.
Kristof of the New York Time is right, President Bush is an embarrassment.
