Transcript of Does Violence in the Media Need to be Regulated

Our opinion
"Media violence DOES affect kids"
"It's in video games, books, music videos, cartoons, etc...
Past research estimates that about 90% of movies, 68% of video games, 60% of TV shows and 15% of music videos."
We strongly believe the only way things will change is if the government intervenes.
We honestly feel media glorifies violence,and 'they' are only worried about making money.
The Government should provide more information about violence on TV and video games, and take corrective measures when a situation becomes dangerous.

We believe that specially for young children, the information should be carefully 'filtered'. For example : We did a simple search on "GOOGLE", using the word 'sex'. We were absolutely shocked by the explicit and graphic nature of the results.
Parents should be provided with 'tools' and information on how to use them, in order to protect their children from harmful contents.

We agree that the government needs to regulate the media.
In our opinion 'violence generates violence. Children may 'copy' the behaviors that they watch on tv and other media.We are convinced that by giving so much importance to violence, the media encourages unwise people to be violent in order to get a lot of attention.

"Video game controversies are unresolved societal and scientific arguments about whether or not the content of video games can change the behavior and attitudes of a player. Since the early 1980s, advocates of video games have emphasized their use as an expressive medium, arguing for their protection under the laws governing freedom of speech and also as an educational tool."
