Skins still the center of controversy

After nearly all the major advertisers pulled their spots and their money from MTV’s Skins, people wondered whether the racy show for teens would collapse under the pressure.  The second episode aired on Monday, however, and there was no shortage of ads – mostly from movie companies wanting to show trailers for new films.

Children’s rights groups are still fighting against the show, claiming everything from immorality to child pornography, but the creator of the show claims that there’s a very strong moral message, and that Skins is just a straightforward attempt to tell the truth about what happens in the lives of teenagers in 2011.  So far, no new advertisers outside the film industry have stepped forward.
