EA Takes FOX News To Task Over Mass Effect

Jeff Cork from Game Informer writes:

"If you watched the recent FOX News piece about purported hard-core sex in EA's Mass Effect, it may have left you fuming. Between the inaccuracies, ignorance and misinformation, it showed yet again that it's virtually impossible to have a reasonable discussion about mature themes in video games within the constraints of a bite-sized news debate. If you count yourself among the peeved, you're in good company. Jeff Brown, EA's VP of communications, wrote a letter to Teri VanHorn, producer of Live Desk with Martha MacCallum, taking issue with the way Mass Effect was presented. Here's the virtual smackdown, in all its glory."

I agree. Keighley is usually a pandering tool (IMO), but he beat her over the head with the facts. Knowing she's cornered, she smiles and references "the experts" and some new study showing that youth can't tell the difference between real and videogames (my paraphrase).. Without seeing the study, I give it a few months before that one will be totally discredited by the scientific community, but unfortunately it will still be referenced by these yahoos. Their panel was a joke also. Not one of them could reference anything in the last decade about videogames, and even asked "what happened to PacMan?" -- fish in a barrel. gCM

You can't pay for this kind of advertising!!!! It's even on Fox news so it doesn't have to be true.

Her book looks like it's doing well on Amazon. LOL

I hate it when people make a comment on something they know nothing about. The round table was more like a circle jerk. What a bunch of idiots. They all want to act holier than thou on TV right before they head home and pick up their soft porn from Blockbuster. Give me a break.

Don't forget to keep those great book reviews come'n!

"Hi Jeff Brown!

Why don't you just shut up!

Sincerely, Bill O'Reilly"
