It would be safe to say that American society is preoccupied with Television If one asks the question How much violence is on television qtd In Eron et al 220 One finds that the level of violence has remained relatively constant over the last 2 decades Most of the violence is directed mainly to the young viewers All most all the television show depict violence in one form or another If an average child watches 2 to 4 hours of television a day then by the time heshe is in high school heshe would have seen over 8000 murders and more than 100000 acts of violence Eron et al 220 Recent research acknowledges that televised violence is related to the aggressive behavior of many children and adolescents The major new factor responsible for this is the marketing of visual media violence to kids There is a link between media violence and violence in our society Everyone knows about the cancer report but no one knows about the media reportWhy For decades if you asked tobacco executives about the link between their product and cancer they lied If you ask media executives about the link between their product and violent crime they will do exactly the same thing--and they control the public airwaves Here is what they dont want you to know In Perspective On Violence Grossman A review of almost 1000 studies presented to the American College of Forensic Psychiatry in 1998 found that all but 18 demonstrated that screen violence leads to real violence and 12 of those 18 were funded by the television industry In 1992 the American Psychological Assn concluded that 40 years of research on the link between TV violence and real-life violence has been ignored stating that the scientific debate is over and calling for federal policy to protect society Surly not every kid who partakes of violent TV shows movies or video games will become a violent criminal
