    You sure they didn't shoot their college up because they were mentally disturbed youngsters angry at the world and society?

    Might I add that the Dalai Lama himself endorses violent games as a sink for negative energy and aggression - not a producer

    Jack Thompson went and got a sex change and changed his name so people could listen to his idiotic banter again, not knowing it was him.

    Since when is rape a bad thing ? Someone please explain this to me, cause I'm totally oblivious to any notion that rape is a crime
  • Mattattack - February 14, 2011 10:37 p.m.

    It's a simple fact that video games DO NOT cause agrresion in players! I can think of one instance where a child stabbed another child after playing Manhunt, but this child suffered severe mental disorders. So his parents must have been shit enough to allow him to play Manhunt, despite knowing this. Typical Fox News bullshit, wanting to scare America, but instead making them look more and more stupid with each retarded report.

    She probably isn't being dumb in doing this, she is saying sensationalist statements to create a cloud of media hype in the hopes of a book deal and a tv interview. The fact that she doesn't care who or what it hurts is neither here nor there.

    LOL I hate FOX news. However, I do love to make fun of them. I've never been an agressive person, even though I was playing semi-violent games when I was six. I don't know anyone whos been violent because they play video games. I just can't wait untill people of our age get into congress. THEN we'll stop all this nonsense.

    Jesus, where to start?! A) In terms of validity, a vox populus (national polls) are one of the least accurate ways of collecting data, just because people believe/don't believe in things doesn't make them fact! Lots of people don't believe that man has landed on the moon, that doesn't disprove anything! B) She makes no allusions to the accuracy of the polls, the most accurate would be to place people in areas with no input (i.e. a blank room), and give them a form with very open questions; "In your opinion, what was the leading contribution to the Columbine killings?" and leave a blank space for them to write their thoughts. *(Columbine were murders, not rapes :-S)* for all we know, it was outside a far right establishment, the people handing out the forms were wearing tshirts which said saying "videogames are EEEEVIIIILLL!" and the questions were multiple choice things like "do you thing videogames were a contributing factor to the horrific murders?" C) one study should *NEVER* be used to quote things as fact! you need to take a LARGE group of studies, and do a meta study, ranking accuracy of the study vs findings, then find an average! this has been done with the video-games cause violence, and the outcome was... no statistical correlation!

    What is even more pitiful is some people believe her.
  • Jajamoo - February 14, 2011 9:50 p.m.

    This bitch is dumb -- she couldn't even get into an American medical school: she had to attend UNIVERSITE DE LOUVAIN, BELGIUM Medical School. I bet this cunt isn't even board certified. What a fraud!
  • Burdmayn - February 14, 2011 9:45 p.m.

    So that's why my mom used to only let me play E rated games... But in all seriousness, it's pretty pathetic that dribble like this can pass for news just because the mainstream media is dumb enough to believe it. Oh society..
  • doominatorx6 - February 14, 2011 9:39 p.m.

    She should hang out with Jack Thompson one of these days
  • DeFade - February 14, 2011 9:37 p.m.

    She's on Fox. Why even try to engage her at all? Waste of energy.
  • tuomotaivainen - February 14, 2011 9:31 p.m.

    So to sum up ALL of the research one could EVER do and everyone ALREADY KNOWS! Yes, Video Games can "influence" people. But if you're already messed up in the head to the point that you'd allow something to influence you. This goes for EVERY FORM OF MEDIA!! This IS NOT exclusive to video games. *sigh*
  • potpan0 - February 14, 2011 9:28 p.m.

    It seems to me that she obviosly didn't have the papers filed away, and had only found them after people started asking her for the basis for her argument. Also, when did 'media' become 'video games'?
  • therawski - February 14, 2011 9:27 p.m.

    OMFG!, Public opinion polls don't mean they result in the truth, Psychiatrists only prescribe medication, they do not study behavior psychology, and wow she presumes we know what she's thinking when she conjures incomprehensible statements like "...studies showing this connection - and believed them to have proven the link" BUY MY BOOKS!!!
  • TruckThunders - February 14, 2011 9:26 p.m.

    I can't anyone that seriously who has that much of the color pink on her website. It looks like she copied an HTML from a 12-year-olds Myspace page. Someone please send this a woman a picture of the TalkRadar R-Ape.
  • MadJack - February 14, 2011 9:18 p.m.

    I said it multiple times. She's an attention wh**e. Again, she fails to point at a DIRECT correlation of violence, rape, world blowing to video games. As with many so-called experts, she takes whatever she feels will help her and dismiss the rest with a swipe of the hand. That, my friends, indicates blatant incompetence. If you can't clearly demonstrate something, at least warn whoever is listening to you. The fact that EVERYONE knows that Fox is biased, she should have known that she would be "misquoted". But she did it anyway knowing the full implications of her "judgment". There is -nothing- scientific in her rambling, she just needed a bone to gnaw on. The problem is, she picked the wrong crowd to mess with.
  • reaperman22 - February 14, 2011 9:17 p.m.

    even if rape was on the rise there would be no way to prove that games caused it as there are so many possible factors, ive always found these studies to be a little bit dumb as they are basically saying the type of people that are affected by games are the types of people that normally exhibit aggressive behaviors to begin with
  • MadMan - February 14, 2011 9:16 p.m.

    What a C_U_N_T!!!
