Unfounded Fear of Video Games

Video games don't create killers, new book says - Yahoo! News There has of course been a lot of worry over video games. Just as there was worry over TV and the movies and comic books. Do they cause violence in kids? Not hardly.
"What I hope people realize is that there is no data to support the simple-minded concerns that video games cause violence," Kutner told Reuters.
As if kids don't understand media, TV or the difference between the real world and a video game.

I think this is at the center the same idea that "guns cause violence" which is patently false. People fear what they don't understand.
