Another bookmark - media violence and violent crime
This chapter seems to offer a much-needed nuanced treatment of the presumed link between media violence and violent crime. I wanted to make sure I had this bookmarked a bit more publicly because this is something I would like to come back to when time permits. Right now my quick take is that the public need not panic. A causal link between media violence (broadly defined) and criminal violence (broadly defined) appears to be at best elusive.
