A man shoots up a crowd, so we should expect some fearsome media blaming. Examples emerged pretty quickly.
For instance, one tv news show, trying to generate a backstory for the shootings, suggests video games could have played a role (around 2:00: "spending time in his apartment playing one video game after another, shooting shooting shooting").
Apparently the shooter did like one computer game. Unfortunately it's not one which fits the fearsome digital media narrative:
Another medium can always take the blame: movies, especially those featuring violent content. Listen to Fox:
If indeed he identified himself as The Joker, could the suspected gunman, James Holmes, have been influenced by the Batman movie or cartoon series? “There have been a tremendous number of studies showing that violent movies can indeed increase the likelihood that somebody in the audience will act aggressively,” Leonard Berkowitz, PhD, Professor of Psychology Emeritus, University of Wisconsin, Madison, explained to FOXNews.com
Here's a call for censorship.
Or we could hit up a tv show's fan base. Beware the "dark, Trekkie-like person."
