Media violence these days is so negative. Kids believe everything they hear and it most of the time ends badly.

Well its not only on tv. Kids these days have social websites that other kids including the media post wrong and hurtful things about people.

violence media is a matter of artistic expression that should never be took away from them.we are not coerced to watch any particular violent show, if we find a show too violent, we can simply switch to other channel or turn the TV off.

But the thing is that is harder and harder to avoid. Its everywhere, and soon it wont be so easy to avoid. Kids are bound to find it no matter what because there is so much technology now and they have 24/7 access to it. The parents can only do so much. The kids will find a way to be on the internet whether they have it at home or not.

At present, the evidence for short-term increases in
minor aggression's not proven and is still subject of debate.
However, at present, the weight of evidence does not support a link between
media violence and acts of serious aggression or violent crime
