MEDIA WATCH: '8 Mile' goes long way to changing media's tune about Eminem

Eminem, the best-selling solo rap artist in history, has created a firestorm of controversy for himself since his debut CD in 1999, as his obscenity-laced lyrics promoted violence, misogyny, and homophobia. His lyrics about fantasies of killing his ex-wife and his mother are among his most controversial. He has also backed up his tough-guy image with a few brushes with the law, and a raw, in-your-face personality that comes across in all of his media appearances. Entertainment Weekly (November 8) called him "possibly the most hated young white man in America."
