Suspect: Talking Differently About Violent Video Games

Jon Hamlin: I hadn’t planned on writing about this topic. I thought that it was being covered adequately by my peers. But, then I saw this article by MSN Living Editor, Charyn Pfeuffer. Give it a read and make sure you watch the video embedded in the story too, where a reporter refers to Call of Duty as Call to Duty.

Reading that article made me realize how ignorant most people really are about videogames. Still not convinced? How about this article from the Telegraph? No? This article from Giles Sheldrick at express.co.uk? How about the press conference NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre held days after the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School? Most of these pieces barely deserve to be called journalism, but I’m not here to debate the ethical status of print journalism in the UK or the US. I’m here because I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore. (Culture)
