St. Louis Post-Dispatch
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch is the major regional newspaper in St. Louis, serving St. Louis City and County, St. Charles County, the Metro East and surrounding counties, it is the only daily newspaper in the city. The publication has received 18 Pulitzer Prizes; the paper is owned by Lee Enterprises of Davenport, which purchased Pulitzer, Inc. in 2005 in a cash deal valued at $1.46 billion. The paper is sold at $4 on Sundays and Thanksgiving Day; the price may be higher outside adjacent states. Sales tax is included at newsracks. On April 10, 1907, Pulitzer wrote what became known as the paper's platform: I know that my retirement will make no difference in its cardinal principles, that it will always fight for progress and reform, never tolerate injustice or corruption, always fight demagogues of all parties, never belong to any party, always oppose privileged classes and public plunderers, never lack sympathy with the poor, always remain devoted to the public welfare, never be satisfied with printing news, always be drastically independent, never be afraid to attack wrong, whether by predatory plutocracy or predatory poverty.
In 1878, Joseph Pulitzer purchased the bankrupt St. Louis Dispatch at a public auction and merged it with the St. Louis Evening Post to create the St. Louis Post and Dispatch, whose title was soon shortened to its current form, he appointed John A. Cockerill as the managing editor, its first edition, 4,020 copies of four pages each, appeared on December 12, 1878. In 1882, James Overton Broadhead ran for US Congress against John Glover; the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, at Cockerill's direction, ran a number of articles questioning Broadhead's role in a lawsuit between a gaslight company and the city. Broadhead's friend and law partner, Alonzo W. Slayback, publicly defended Broadhead, asserting that the St. Louis Post-Dispatch was nothing more than a "blackmailing sheet." The next day, October 13, 1882, Cockerill re-ran an offensive "card" by John Glover that the paper had published the prior November. Incensed, Slayback barged into Cockerill's offices at the paper demanding an apology. Cockerill killed Slayback.
A grand jury refused to indict Cockerill for murder, but the economic consequences for the paper were severe. Therefore, in May 1883, Pulitzer sent Cockerill to New York to manage the New York World for him; the Post-Dispatch was one of the first daily newspapers to print a comics section in color, on the back page of the features section, styled the "Everyday Magazine." At one time, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch had the second-largest news bureau in Washington, D. C. of any newspaper in the Midwestern United States. After Joseph Pulitzer's retirement, generations of Pulitzers guided the newspaper, ending when great-grandson Joseph Pulitzer IV left the company in 1995; the Post-Dispatch was characterized by a liberal editorial page and columnists, including Marquis Childs. The editorial page was noted for political cartoons by Daniel R. Fitzpatrick, who won the 1955 Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning, Bill Mauldin, who won the Pulitzer for editorial cartooning in 1959. Several months prior to the anniversary edition, the newspaper published a 63rd anniversary tribute to "Our Own Oddities", a lighthearted feature that ran from 1940 to 1990.
During the presidency of Harry S. Truman, the paper was one of his most outspoken critics, it associated him with the Pendergast machine in Kansas City, attacked his integrity. In 1950, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch sent a reporter, Dent McSkimming, to Brazil to cover the 1950 FIFA World Cup; the reporter paid for his own travelling expenses and was the only U. S. reporter in all of Brazil covering the event. In 1959 the St. Louis Globe-Democrat entered into a joint operating agreement with the Post-Dispatch; the Post–Globe operation merged advertising, printing functions and shared profits. The Post-Dispatch, distributed evenings, had a smaller circulation than the Globe-Democrat, a morning daily; the Globe-Democrat folded in 1983, leaving the Post-Dispatch as the only daily newspaper in the region. In August 1973 a Teamsters union representing Globe and Post-Dispatch staffers went on strike, halting production for six weeks. On January 13, 2004, the Post-Dispatch published a 125th anniversary edition, which included some highlights of the paper's 125 years: Coverage of Charles Lindbergh, who flew across the Atlantic despite being denied financial or written support from the Post-Dispatch.
A Pulitzer Prize-winning campaign to clean up smoke pollution in St. Louis. In the late 1930s and early 1940s, the city had the filthiest air in America. See 1939 St. Louis smog. Sports coverage, including nine "St. Louis baseball Cardinals" championships, an NBA title by the St. Louis Hawks in 1958, the 2000 Super Bowl victory of the St. Louis Rams.

On January 31, 2005, Michael Pulitzer announced the sale of Pulitzer, Inc. and all its assets, including the Post-Dispatch and a small share of the St. Louis Cardinals, to Lee Enterprises of Davenport, for $1.46 billion. He said. On March 12, 2007, the paper eliminated 31 jobs in its circulation, classified phone rooms, purchasing, telephone operations and marketing departments. Several rounds of layoffs have followed. On March 23, 2009, the paper converted to a compact style every day from the previous broadsheet Sunday through Friday and tabloid on Saturday.

New York Daily News
The New York Daily News titled Daily News, is an American newspaper based in New York City. As of May 2016, it was the ninth-most circulated daily newspaper in the United States, it was founded in 1919, was the first U. S. daily printed in tabloid format. It reached its peak circulation at 2.4 million copies a day. The Daily News was founded as the Illustrated Daily News. Patterson and his cousin, Robert R. McCormick were co-publishers of the Chicago Tribune and grandsons of Tribune Company founder Joseph Medill; when Patterson and McCormick could not agree on the editorial content of the Chicago paper, the two cousins decided at a meeting in Paris that Patterson would work on the project of launching a Tribune-owned newspaper in New York. On his way back, Patterson met with Alfred Harmsworth, the Viscount Northcliffe and publisher of the Daily Mirror, London's tabloid newspaper. Impressed with the advantages of a tabloid, Patterson launched the Daily News on June 26, 1919; the Daily News was not an immediate success, by August 1919, the paper's circulation had dropped to 26,625.
Still, New York's many subway commuters found the tabloid format easier to handle, readership grew. By the time of the paper's first anniversary in June 1920, circulation was over 100,000 and by 1925, over a million. Circulation reached its peak at 2.4 million daily and 4.7 million on Sunday. The Daily News carried the slogan "New York's Picture Newspaper" from 1920 to 1991, for its emphasis on photographs, a camera has been part of the newspaper's logo from day one; the paper's slogan, developed from a 1985 ad campaign, is "New York's Hometown Newspaper", while another has been "The Eyes, the Ears, the Honest Voice of New York". The Daily News continues to include large and prominent photographs, for news and sports, as well as intense city news coverage, celebrity gossip, classified ads, comics, a sports section, an opinion section. News-gathering operations were, for a time, organized using two-way radios operating on 173.3250 MHz, allowing the assignment desk to communicate with its personnel who utilized a fleet of "radio cars".
Prominent sports cartoonists have included Bruce Stark and Ed Murawinski. Columnists have included Walter Kaner. Editorial cartoonists have included C. D. Batchelor; the paper published a Monday-Friday afternoon counterpart, Daily News Tonight, between August 19, 1980 and August 28, 1981. Occasional "P. M. Editions" were published as extras in 1991, during the brief tenure of Robert Maxwell as publisher. In 1982, again in the early 1990s during a newspaper strike, the Daily News went out of business. In the 1982 instance, the parent Tribune Company offered the tabloid up for sale. In 1991, millionaire Robert Maxwell offered financial assistance to the News to help it stay in business; when Maxwell died shortly thereafter, the News seceded from his publishing empire, which splintered under questions about whether Maxwell had the financial backing to sustain it. After Maxwell's death in 1991, the paper was held together in bankruptcy by existing management, led by editor James Willse, who became interim publisher after buying the paper from Tribune.
Mort Zuckerman bought the paper in 1993. From its founding until 1991, the Daily News was owned by the Tribune Company. In 1948, the News established WPIX, whose call letters were based on the News's nickname of "New York's Picture Newspaper"; the television station became a Tribune property outright in 1991, remains in the former Daily News Building. The News maintains local bureaux in the Bronx and Queens, at City Hall, within One Police Plaza, at the various state and federal courthouses in the city. In January 2012, former News of the World and New York Post editor Colin Myler was appointed editor-in-chief of the Daily News. Myler was replaced by his deputy Jim Rich in September 2015. On September 4, 2017, the publishing operations of the former Tribune Company, announced that it had acquired the Daily News. Tronc had bought the Daily News for $1, assuming "operational and pension liabilities". By the time of purchase, circulation had dropped to 200,000 on 260,000 on Sundays. In July 2018, tronc fired half of the paper's editorial staff, including the editor-in-chief, Jim Rich.
Rich was replaced by Robert York and Editor-in-Chief of tronc-owned The Morning Call in Allentown, Pennsylvania. The paper's social media staff were included in the cut. New York Times journalist Alan Feuer said the Daily News focuses on "deep sourcing and doorstep reporting", providing city-centered "crime reportage and hard-hitting coverage of public issues rather than portraying New York through the partisan divide between liberals and conservatives". According to Feuer, the paper is known for "speaking to and for the city’s working class" and for "its crusades against municipal misconduct"; the New York Times has described the Daily News's editorial stance as "flexibly centrist" with a "high-minded, if populist, legacy". The News endorsed Rep

Singled Out is a dating game show which ran on MTV from 1995 to 1998. Each episode featured a group of 50 singles competing for a date with one main contestant; the original hosts were Jenny McCarthy. When McCarthy left the show in early 1997 to star in her own sitcom, Jenny, MTV hired Carmen Electra to replace her for the last season and a half; the show became a cult classic, putting a more comedic spin on formal dating shows. Contestants would most be unconventional and cast purely for entertainment, without any assumed compatibility put into effect. MTV revamped the series in late 2018 for its YouTube channel; the overhauled format gave a more urban contemporary hip hop theme to the show. Incorporating a main social media aspect as well, the show features rapper Justina Valentine acting as host, with rapper Conceited as a cohost; each game began with one main contestant, the "Picker", being escorted onto the set blindfolded in front of the 50 potential dates in the "Dating Pool" while the announcer described him/her.
The Picker was led to a seat facing away from the Dating Pool and further divided from the potential dates by a wall. The Picker was presented with a board showing six categories, which ranged from physical attributes to preferences in love-making to leisure activities, they were expressed in a humorous style with various pop-culture references. After choosing a category, two or three choices were listed, the Picker was asked to eliminate one of the choices. After eliminating a choice, all the contestants who fit that choice left the Dating Pool, in view of the Picker; this process was repeated until five to eight potentials were left, at which point they advanced to the next round. In the third season, a Golden Ticket was introduced, which allowed the Picker to save one eliminated player as he or she walked in front of him on the way out of the studio; this contestant automatically advanced to the semifinals. For episodes taped outside, the "Golden Ticket" was replaced with a Golden Lifesaver, with the same rules.
At that point, the Picker asked a series of questions which ranged from Dating Game–style questions to stunt-oriented questions. If the Picker was satisfied with the answer or performance, he or she would "keep" the contestant, advancing them to the final round. If the Picker was not satisfied, he or she would "dump" the contestant, eliminating him or her from further play. "Dumped" contestants were not shown to the Picker as in the first round, but were instead marked with some sort of prop, such as a toilet seat around the neck, a bag with a sad face on it on the male player's head, or a pageant sash labeled "Dumped". This round continued either until three contestants were "kept," or all but three had been "dumped." If the potential date received the golden ticket sometimes the host would show him or her to the picker. The wall was removed from behind the Picker to reveal a walkway with several spaces behind him or her; the three finalists started on the back step, were asked a series of two-choice questions.
Each time a contestant's answer matched. The first player to make it to the circle on which the Picker was sitting won a date with the Picker. In case of a tie, a final question was asked to the tying contestants, such as "How many girls did say he dated last year?". The contestant who guessed the closest without going over won the date. After a couple had been made, the two contestants were placed back-to-back while Hardwick read a description of the winning player to the Picker; the contestants were turned around to meet each other for the first time, their trip and prizes were described to them by the announcer. Two games were played per show, first with a woman picking from 50 single men with a man picking from 50 single women. Besides the hosts, the show had mascot characters; the most prominent character was a scruffy, cigar-smoking cupid known as "Bob the Angel", who would sometimes appear in a series of vignettes with Hardwick and McCarthy. Bob would be joined by a wife, a son, Little Bob.
Other characters included an evangelist. These characters would interact with the contestants during the "Keep'Em or Dump'Em" round, such as one male contestant being challenged to a game of tetherball against Castro. On rare occasions celebrities would appear. A female Picker claimed she was a Mel Torme fan and challenged a contestant to sing like him, only to have the real Torme come and judge his work; the format in the 2018 revival is different. The show has a main hip hop/urban contemporary theme, with a social media or Tinder motif as well. Showcasing a more inclusive tolerance towards alternative lifestyles featuring LGBTQ segments as well. In the original version, "The Picker", is seated facing away from the audience. 50 other "singles" still compete for one person, however only 25 are genuine legitimate contestants in studio. Referred to as "IRL" contestants.. The other 25 are "URL" contestants, they are contestants as well, however not quite. The catch

MTV Movie & TV Awards
The MTV Movie & TV Awards is a film and television awards show presented annually on MTV. The nominees are decided by producers and executives at MTV. Winners are decided online by the general public. Presently voting is done through MTV's official website through a TV Awards voting website; the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards took place on May 7, 2017 and featured the first time men and women competing jointly in the acting categories. Winners are presented with the "golden popcorn" statue, made by Society Awards. Unlike its sister event MTV Video Music Awards, the MTV Movie Awards were taped and broadcast a few days later; the entire production was taped in a different order than what the MTV viewing audience saw. For example, the show's host would tape all his/her monologues and introductions at one time, all the musical acts would perform one after the other. Celebrities would only appear at the live taping for the announcement of their award category, members of the general audience fill-in their vacant seats during the other times.
Through editing, MTV was able to present to its viewing audience an awards show which appears to be taped in live sequence, with celebrities remaining for the entire show. This method of production allowed profanity to be edited from the show and is more convenient for the celebrities; the actual live taping aired same-day on pay-per-view channels in most metropolitan cities around the world. Some awards telecasts had been shown in television syndication. However, in 2007, this changed, as MTV and Survivor producer Mark Burnett announced that the 2007 edition would be broadcast live on MTV for the first time on June 3, 2007 in Los Angeles; the 2016 broadcast was the first show since 2006 not to air live as the event was taped on April 9, 2016 before airing on Viacom's MTV networks the following day on April 10. Since 2007, polls for several awards were voted by online users on MTV's official website. Best Movie Best Show Best Performance in a Movie Best Performance in a Show Best Comedic Performance Best Scared-As-Shit Performance Best Villain Best Hero Best Kiss Best Fight Best On-Screen Team Best Reality Series Best Music Documentary Best Scene Stealer The Lifetime Achievement Award was given to movie personalities, including fictional characters, who made an impact on popular culture.
Prior to announcing the winner MTV would air testimonials from major Hollywood celebrities praising the winners greatness while only offering a slight tease as to who the winner was. Following Clint Howard's win and emotional reception speech, the award was discontinued. 1992: Jason Voorhees 1993: The Three Stooges 1994: John Shaft 1995: Jackie Chan 1996: Godzilla 1997: Chewbacca 1998: Clint Howard The Silver Bucket of Excellence is an award, given to a film that has made lasting impact on moviegoers and the MTV audience. It was further defined in 2006 as honoring a "film of the past that resonates with more meaning today." 2005: The Breakfast Club – awarded to Anthony Michael Hall, Molly Ringwald, Ally Sheedy 2006: Do the Right Thing – awarded to Spike Lee The MTV Generation Award is the successor to the MTV Lifetime Achievement Award, though it is more serious than its predecessor. The recipient of the award is celebrated for great achievement in movies; the distinction "is given to an artist who has shown us a variety of impressive roles, a personal and professional flair and of course, an awesome level of talent."
The MTV Trailblazer Award recipient spearheads the way for others. The award is given to an actor of young age that managed to inspire others with a diverse portfolio of work and a transcendent reputation in the public eye. 2013: Will Ferrell 2015: Kevin Hart 2016: Melissa McCarthy Since 1993, scenes are spoofed from that year's most popular films, although television shows and older movies have been chosen. This may include sound and video montages, replacing some of the original cast with other actors mocking the scenes of that film; the diversity of the spoofs can vary from one dialogue to several long scenes, including fighting and action sequences.
