You would be a very naive person if you think media has no influence on us.

Indeed, especially if media pointing the easy finger on the video game and movie industry and you believe that bull* t in relation to these violent social related outbreaks. It's the cheap blaming excuse, which is also used by some in Norway.

If it is so easy, tell that to those 1000's of murdering teenager Tutsi and Hutu killing each other with great ease..they did not have a television, they did not have game system, only access to the radio telling them to kiil the others ,and parents feeding them with the same hatred about the other tribe.

It goes a bit deeper than blaming it on (to keep it telly related) a Sesame Street style excuse on the media, television and game industry. But you can understand that, it's a question of wanting it to understand.

Besides we're again going off the subject, maybe that is your reason? don't want to discuss (see) the real reason for the problems, blame it on the media and game industry...?
