    Question Crime and the media
    Do you believe that there is a link between violent crimes shown in movies and TV programmes and crimes in the real world?

    Sure!

    It seems like the more crime there is in the real world, the more crime appears in the news and in other TV programs.

    I don't buy it. There is less crime in the US today then there was in the 50's and 60's atleast here in NYC that is the case.

    We just hear more about these things because of news and a lot of writers get their stories from real life situations, just look at law and order.

    Ditto!

    I used to be a news junkie, but seems like lately it's 90% bad news. That is wat sells more time slots for commercials.

    When I was in college, one of my professors talked about a study that said the more TV news a person watches, the more violent they perceive the world to be. They think crime rates are higher, etc.
