Kelly McAndrew, a spokeswoman for Viacom, which owns MTV, said the screening was aimed at attracting a diverse audience.
“We’re just trying to get the broadest, most diverse audience possible,” she said, denying that either Republicans or ugly people would be screened out. “We want to have divergent points of view – we’re not looking for a single-view audience.”
“We’re going to have a very diverse looking audience,” McAndrew said. “We want gender diversity, we want ethnicity diversity, we want religious diversity, we want political view diversity. We want diversity of all kinds.”
