This week, on tuesday june 26th, The U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, & Transportation [URL=http://commerce.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?FuseAction=Hearings.Hearing&Hearing_ID=1879]held a hearing about the impact of media violence on children.[/URL]

Among major statements, there was [URL=http://commerce.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?FuseAction=Hearings.Statement&Statement_ID=271]Senator John "Jay" Rockefeller's one,[/URL] very harsh against media violence and entertainment industry. It's not surprinsing when you know that he's already written a column about it this year. You can [URL=http://rockefeller.senate.gov/news/speeches/TVViolence2007.html]read it on his website.[/URL]

Among witnesses, there was [URL=http://commerce.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?FuseAction=Hearings.Testimony&Hearing_ID=1879&Witness_ID=6664]Tim Winter[/URL] from the Parent Television Council, and [URL=http://commerce.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?FuseAction=Hearings.Testimony&Hearing_ID=1879&Witness_ID=6111]Jeff McIntyre[/URL] from the American Psychology Association.

How are video games related to this hearing ? Well, it seems that [URL=http://www.americansforprosperity.org/index.php?id=3428]Senator Frank Lautenberg was at the hearing[/URL] and that he mentioned video games. Note that Lautenberg [URL=http://lautenberg.senate.gov/newsroom/record.cfm?id=254295]slammed [I]JFK Reloaded[/I][/URL] 3 years ago. And [URL=http://www.larouchepac.com/pages/breaking_news/2007/06/26/senate_blasts_media_violence.asp]according to LaRouchePAC[/URL] (eeewww... but I didn't have any other source), he said at the hearing : [I]"We have to include video games as part of the violence. The biggest growth in entertainment is video games."[/I]

Here is [URL=http://www.voanews.com/english/2007-06-27-voa24.cfm]another site[/URL] that reports about this hearing.
