MTV Turns 20

The original music video network, MTV, turns 20 today, and host David Kestenbaum reports on its influence on the music industry and American pop culture. Some call it revolutionary, but critics blame MTV for cheapening music by emphasizing image over art. Regardless, the network has had a huge effect on music, film, television... and millions of American teenagers.
