Fox News is Trustworthy

I have to applaud Fox News on this one. They really dug in and gave a “fair and balanced” view without leaving anything out. See guys, I told you that you were wrong about that whole selective quoting thing.

In an article titled Is Bulletstorm the Worst Video Game in the World? I had a revelation with this quote from Carol Lieberman:

“The increase in rapes can be attributed in large part to the playing out of [sexual] scenes in video games,” she said.

THIS is why SW:TOR will fail. Too many of Bioware’s players turning into rapists. You can’t sustain a sub when you’re serving 20-to-life, folks. Nevermind all those mass murderers questing will make. Damn you, full-voicing! The urges are too much!

Seriously: I don’t pretend to defend the gratuitous testosterone fueled mayhem Bulletstorm provides, but give me a break. It’s a mature rated game. Read that, Mrated. That means it’s not intended for kids. So when Fox claims that 9 year olds will somehow be harmed by it, I wonder if they ever blamed Cinemax for releasing the DVD box set of Red Shoe Diaries. What’s that? It’s the parent’s job to see their kids don’t watch porn? How about Dell for opening doors to the seedy underbelly of the Internet?

That’s right, I almost forgot. Video games make for good headlines with their old-white-guy demographic. Fair and balanced. Does anyone even believe that any more?
