  • Each year there is more and more violence in the media.

    There has been a steady increase in media violence over the last several years which matches an increase in violence in society. The reason is that violence sells because it can be seen in the increase in violent video games, increased violent TV series, and the main focus in the news media. Basically, a large portion of society has an addiction to violence and Their in denial, because that's what addicts do. They claim that they don't have a problem, but they do, because the reality is that they can't kick the habit.

  • It just encourages violent behavior!

    I grew up in a non-violent home where my parents actively frowned upon violence. If I acted out when I was a kid in an aggressive manor they would show their disapproval by walking away. For instance when I was 10 I put on a puppet show during Easter and was displaying two puppets fighting. After it was over I asked them if they liked it and they both said that it was good except for the violence. The violence that I was portraying I learned from TV shows (Bugs Bunny) (Three Stooges) in the 80's which weren't very violent for the time. Later on in life I was watching movies with more violence and listening to death metal music which caused me to focus my teenage angst to violent mental imagery. I remember fantasizing about violently beating up kids in school that picked on me. The images were very similar to images that I saw in fighting movies like Blood Sport. I would have never had those images in my head like I did if it wasn't for the movies I was watching at the time. Thankfully I did nothing with the fantasies and never was violent towards anyone and I credit my parents for this! If we as parents show our children that violence is ok by watching violent movies with our young children around and not showing displeasure for this then we are actively creating little violent bombs! If there is nothing inside their heads that tells them that violence is wrong then they are bound to act it out!!! Thing about it!! Do your part as a parent and stop encouraging violence by watching violent films or TV show in front of them!!! We are the sum of our input.....Violence in violence out!! It is simple logic!

  • It is a fact

    There are scientific facts now a days that media violence is a risk factor for violence. If you look up the connection of media violence to real life violence, you will find article after article saying there is a connection that is scientifically proven. Even if you look up a debate, you will find scientific facts to back up that media is a risk factor for violence

  • The media causes violent behavior

    Reality is distorted. If you live in a fictional world, then the fictional world becomes your reality. Especially if you grow up with violence surrounding you on television and on the internet. Kids are not yet mature enough to know the difference fact and fantasy so they don't think anything is wrong with what they are doing. Violent behavior doesn't necessarily mean you are doing anything extreme, but can mean you have aggressive behavior or that you bully someone.

  • Revival of WWII Standards of Propaganda?

    There is no reason to believe that Neanderthals, Slavery, or Hatred of Jews is behind us as a people. What humans did once, they can repeat.

    Protections lie in not tolerating the attitudes that became the actions, and that means not selling the attitudes through film, and communications meant to trivialize the gravity of the injustices that brought about those conditions. The Media is apparently not capable of self regulation to prevent pandering to those attitudes, but is fact, highly selective in how or who to choose to hate by the entertainment styles, methods they use for enlightenment and entertainment. But who thinks it is a level playing field in how public will be programmed of what is tolerable, or intolerable?

  • Teen violence in schools

    I see violence in my children when thy watch violent movies of TV shows like :the walking dead. Media violence with TV's is influencing the children and the above their age level. Kids watching rated R movies and thy are acting like the vilest movie charters and saying bad words.

  • I stronly agree!!!!!!!

    It is a bad idea. People are becoming too violent. Today some one at our school slammed someone else's head against a brick wall he did this because he thinks that it is just fine because people on the video game do it. Kids are becoming too violent!!!Nothing more has to be said!

  • I strongly believe that T.V networks should not allow T.V Violence to be aired on T.V

    -IT teachers people especially young children, bad influential words and actions. For example, they could learn cussing words which could be used in front of others when they are upset or mad. Which could lead them into a bad situation

    Actions. T.V airs drugs and other substances that are not good for your health. They use drugs and make it seen amazing or great. However using these drugs will make you violent, think rashly, depressed, and addicted

  • Yes it does

    The media is obviously not 100 per cent to blame but I would say that it does affect it quite a lot! Kids shouldn't be able to buy games such as Grand Theft Auto or Call of Duty as these really may influence how they look at the world. Even stupid adverts on the tv could push a kid over the edge and make them think that they can just go out and beat any randomer up! Its not fair!

  • The person chooses violence.

    Every night on the news there are reports about murders, wars, and rapes. But the news isn't the only place where people encounter violent or aggressive behavior. Driving home from work, people get cut off and cussed at on a daily basis. At school, children fight over who will be the first in the lunch line. On the street, people get pushed out of the way if they are not walking fast enough. The list could go on and on and on. The point is that humans exhibit aggressive behavior on a regular basis. However, does anyone know why people display these behaviors? Why do certain people seem more aggressive? Is there just one thing that controls when and how aggressive someone becomes? These are all questions that researchers have been addressing for many years. In fact there has been quite a debate over what causes people to be aggressive. However, in order to try to understand where aggression may stem from, you must understand how aggression is defined as well as all of the possibilities that may cause it.

  • No it doesn't

    Actually violent acts have decreased ever since many rated M video games have come out. There are graphs that show some of the worst video games on a timeline showing that violence has decreased in the last so many years. I play video games and maybe that makes be bias but, that is my opinion.

  • You need to think

    If there was no violence in media then nothing would have a conflict. Also violence is in to much media to take it away. I bet over half of the people who say it causes violence play phone apps like "Clash of Clans" or even something as simple as "Flappy Bird". All I'm saying is think of it like that people.

  • No it doesn't

    Media does not bring violence in the world. Yes there are a lot of violent games, movies and shows but we all know it's fake and we don't take it serously. Normally kids who do copy what they see in movies and games are kids who either live in a rough house hold or have a mental disorder. People just know not to do the things they see in media because we all know that it is fake. There are more kids that play violent games that don't do what they see then there are kids that do. People get use to seeing it on media yes, but when we see the news or things that reflect on real life, we get shocked and think "why would anybody do that" or "its crazy that someone could think like that". People are used to seeing it in TV but when it comes to real life situations we act different. Normally scared or nervouse and know that you are not suppose to be doing that or is scared for seeing it in real life.

  • It is an unfair assumption.

    Violence — in our society, we are exposed to it everywhere. Video games, scripted television shows, and movies use it to make money, presenting it as a form of entertainment. Still others present it to live audiences for fame and a nice paycheck, like World Wrestling Entertainment Incorporated and Ultimate Fighting Championship. But it is often present in a form not for entertainment, but as street fights and everyday behavior. While violence in the media is a controversial topic, and does tend to become the scapegoat for the behaviors of small children and adolescents, saying that it does indeed deserve the blame is an untrue assumption.

    Video games seem to receive the worst of the blame, particularly first-person shooting games, like the ever-popular Call of Duty and Halo. While there are studies that have confirmed that violent games (particular first-person shooter games) influence aggressive behavior, Forbes magazine says, "No study has ever shown that violent video games result directly in actual violence..." Even more shocking, they also said that it has been proven that "as violent video games have become more popular, violent crime has fallen." Therefore, it is unreasonable to say that specifically video games directly cause violent behavior in the people who play them.

  • Media does cause violent

    Media does cause violent because kid to young and they problem media some problem dude, but they not stupid to pick up a gun and go grand theft on the world even thought they only got one life only. That why you don't see lot of people in jail, how it use to

  • Media doesn't lead to violence.

    Hospitals and prisons use television to calm people down and not to anger them. Media has been shown to decrease aggressive tendencies. Studies have shown that social media helps mentally troubled people. Crime doesn't come from the media. Crime has no correlation with the violence in media. How many times do you see people jumping onto rooftops and killing people after playing a video game?

  • You are all stupid.

    If media is such a bad influence and causes violent minds in our children. Then please explain how the Romans, Ancient Chinese, and even Cave Men became violent? They have no television nor video games. Then how does it cause violence? Yes you are going to pull some "facts" that you have read or heard to use against this argument, but before you do that think to yourself. How do the native tribes in South America know about violence when they keep away from others? Violence is not learned. It is innate. For those who do not know innate is to be born within or to be born with it. Yes kids and adults copy what they have seen but it doesnt mean they were not violent before or insane. No one likes to say they are insane becuase as i said. It's too simple of an answer. When most of the time, that is the answer. So please tell me. After thousands of years of human violence how is media which by the way has not been around that long if you really think about it, how is media the cause of violence. Thank you and goodnight to those who will try to prove this wrong but will fail because the facts are as they are. Just because you do not like the answer doesn't mean it isnt true.

  • Media is just an excuse for parents who won't admit they suck at raising children.

    A lot of people will blame media and games for their kids violent actions when it could be any billions of other causes. Plenty of people play violent video games or watch violent movies and that doesn't make them automatically insane murderers! I think that people blame the media for no reason!

  • Media is not the problem

    People blame the media for corrupting every kid in America with violent TV and violent video games. That isn't in every case, not every kid wants to shoot somebody and/or hurt someone. There are other variable's for the kids that do like stress, frustration, and trouble in school. That is my opinion.
