Violence in Media

Introduction

The impact of the media on violence is an area of ongoing debate. This media includes, but is not limited to, video games, movies, and news reporting. The debate focuses on the way media influences or promotes the general acceptance of violent behavior in society, including the focus on long-term psychological effects that violent media may have on the development of children. One group may argue that violence in media needs to be censored while another group may argue that censorship is a means to mask other possible causes of violent behavior.
