In the week before the Virginia Tech shooting, both ABC's Deborah Roberts and NBC's Rehema Ellis had contrasted the seemingly acceptable misogynist vocabulary of the gangster rap school of hip-hop music with the outrageous use of some of the same words on commercial radio by Don Imus.
The Imus angle is over now, but CBS had Bill Whitaker look at trends in hip-hop music generally. He called it "young America's soundtrack" that has become a multi-billion-dollar industry by packaging "hardcore language and softcore images" and selling them to a majority white demographic: "It has grown from urban to suburban." Now, the genre is in decline, without a single representative in last year's top ten pop music bestsellers and a 21% drop in sales in 2006. Whitaker predicted that rap will return to non-misogynist origins: "Its roots are all about making a joyful noise."
