Cooper Lawrence admits she was wrong: Statement

Do not adjust your set, you really did read that Cooper Lawrence, the psychologist who appeared in Fox's unfair and unfounded slander against Mass Effect, has admitted that she "misspoke" about the game and has actually done the right thing in retracting her comments. Having now actually done what she should have done and watched the sex scenes in question, Lawrence has realized that the game was not the foul and degrading porno she told everyone it was:

"I recognize that I misspoke. I really regret saying that, and now that I've seen the game and seen the sex scenes it's kind of a joke.

Before the show I had asked somebody about what they had heard, and they had said it's like pornography. But it's not like pornography. I've seen episodes of Lost that are more sexually explicit."

This is actually incredibly pleasing news, to see someone who has enough of a spine to admit something like that, especially when it comes to videogames. While it does little to justify her going on air and defending a viewpoint she had no right claiming to hold, and doesn't make up for the disrespect she showed Geoff Keighley and the games industry, it is at least a respectable move and a sign that not everyone on "the other side of the fence" has to remain ignorant and offensive in the face of the truth.

Too late b!tch. We all have been going to and reviewing your book. And it is getting slammed over there. Go look what happens when you insult gamers and try to mess with your hobbies. Also, misspoke isn't what you did. Misspoke is when you where onj the right track, but you were slightly skewed or a little off the mark in your exactness. No you lied. You were completely 180 degrees off the truth. And you were adamant about it. Sorry, too little too late.

somehow i agree with you. The woman writes a book and doesnt even have the decency to do some serious research about the game.

That tells a lot about the quality of her book.

There are too many incompetent people on display, especially on TV.

your too late. For Gamers (like me), this was like the last straw, we had to take these matters into our own hands in order for your little brain to listen. unless you go out there and make more reserch about video games and play them and make a book about how the media is wrong about video games and how they steriotype them on how they promote violence towards children, then we can accept you again. But not today, what you just did in your show was hurt our beloved games, the games that we play and adore due to their story.

and it only took her a week and a half to realise how big of a mistake she made, you can literally see the scenes on youtube, and now shes trying to write it off as a little mistake

"Before the show I had asked somebody about what they had heard, and they had said it’s like pornography."

An expert indeed... :|
