Ever since Mnet structurally, wilfully pretended SNSD's Gee never existed with MAMA and regarding every one of their awards shows, just because they had a feud with SM Entertainment going, Mnet has been sus in how much they allow personal motives to influence their shows incl MAMA.
This has been proven time and time again, the latest examples being their tinkering of Produce rankings.
Everyone should decide for themselves how honest and fair they consider a party like Mnet and its shows, considering Mnet's long, proven history of unscrupulous, unremorseful manipulations of its own shows' results.
But to me, Mnet's like a Trump who after years of his tweeting history, tweets once again 'trust me!', 'real news!'
... sure, hon, sure. Fool me once again, please, will ya?
