I like how offended she gets by a game feature that her own mind conjured up.
At least know what your talking about if your going to do a story on it....

...I don't even know what to say. I saw the first few minutes of them getting upset about all these poor assault rifle manufacturers and I....I don't know what to say.

Really? There actually exists a place that stupid? Really?

I'm probably going to sound really sexist when I say this but here we go.

Why is it when there's a link to a video from CNN or Fox or whatever talking about the evils of video games and how they cause violence and etc etc, the news anchor is always a woman?

From the Mass "the game is nothing but you playing as a space marine who goes around having sex with every alien he can find" Effect to this, it always seems to be a woman leading the charge to stop these heinous video games from destroying our fair country.

Women are sweet. And innocent. And if it were a dude. He would be defended Videogames since I think most dudes play CoD halo or Madden. Or GTA.

I don't care whether the reporter is male, female or extra-terrestrial, lying like that makes you an idiot.

I wish someone would call them out on their stupid ignorance, like Sessler did to Thompson on the Bully debate.

Know that if you allow someone to take advantage of you, they might make it a habit.

Probably because most of the anchorpeople in general are women.

And really, health boost and in game currency is pretty much the same thing as "points" to an outside observer. Its not like she was totally off base.

What was off base was her ridiculous assumptions about video games causing violence. But that isnt news. There are tons of stupid people out there looking for a scapegoat, and some juicy quotes to up ratings. What really pissed me off about that video was a licensed psychologist saying "No video games dont cause violence, but the govt should control them anyway."

Get the hell out of here.

Awesome, but I wish that it had happened on the air. Live, so that everyone watching the news realize how dumb she is and how they probably shouldn't listen to her BS.
