For example (quote): "In 1982 the National Institute of Mental Health issued a pivotal report, in its review of over 2,500
studies of the effects of TV violence, it concluded, " in magnitude, television violence is as strongly
correlated with aggressive behavior as any other behavioral variable that has been measured."
The authors fail to take into account any other studies that have been given. They fail to fully elaborate on what tests where done in the study. They fail to describe fully how television violence leads to real-world aggressive behavior. They look too much at the fictional media world, without thinking about how people, especially children, would realistically react to violence.
The authors of "Stop Teaching Our Kids To Kill" set out with one set conclusion already reached, and simply cherry-picked facts to suit this conclusion. They didn't research, they just wrote. They failed to take into account ANY counter-arguments. I sincerely hope that no-one takes them seriously.
