Another Case Of Mainstream Media Ignorance – CBS Boston Refers To EDM As ‘Molly’

In what is now becoming a laughable trend among mainstream media reporting on electronic music events and affiliated happenings, local Boston CBS affiliate WBZ may very well have just taken the trophy for most blatantly ignorant and unresearched news segment. “Reporter” Christina Hager muses the following gem of knowledge to all of CBS Boston’s informed audience: “…the drug molly, also called MDMA, or EDM…forms of ecstasy…” Then there’s the video title “Boston Police To Increase Patrols Around EDM Shows,” so there’s molly shows going on in the Boston area?! Party time – but only if you get the legit stuff produced in “bathtubs in China“. On top of that is the clear lack of editing in the video description in referencing “EMD shows” (possibly standing for “electronic music destruction” in the massively fear-based mainstream Bostonian mentality). The Youtube video has been under comment blast since its upload. As expected, CBS has removed the video, but you can stream the full piece over at YahooEnjoy the 13 second clip below if you’re looking for a good laugh:
