I do not know whether your concern that such scenes are watched by children , due to the fact that in Canada, mostly persons watching CNN are under 18 years of age???
I think that both in Poland and the USA (and the rest of the world), news channels watching mainly adults. Even teens are rare.
Firstly, my concern waz not about children becoming sadistz. I, who am an adult, don't need to see someonez head opened when I turn on my televission set. All I need is for the anchor to tell me that people died and that would be clear enough for me. Also, people in canada usually get their news From CTV or GLOBAL (if there are any other candians reading this you can confirm). Another thing is, I was watching the news as a child and as a teenager and so did my friends. So the fact that YOU didn't watch the news as a child or teen doesn't meen that that is the case in the rest of the world. Due to lawz in Canada we have restrictions on what iz allowed to be difused on air consiquently, due to satellitez we can obtain channelz from around the world wich exposez us to thingz we wouldn't normally see on canadian television. I just wanted to know if they alwayse show dead people on the news in other countries and not only dead I wanted to know if they show open bodies and stuff like that. It seemed pretty clear to me.That iz that regarding my post.
Now about sadism. From what I understand, Sadism is defined az Getting sexual gratification from enflicting pain on otherz....I like to spank my Boyfriend from time to time because it excites me. I also do martial artz and when I get to punch or kick someone in the face I alwayse go home a bit excited.This makes me a bit of a sadist. I am unable to make the connection between that and video gamez. Also, I wasn't allowed to play video gamez as a child so that iz another reason why I cant blame video gamez for my sadistic tendencies. Video gamez are violent but they don't encourage sexual gratification. Kidz arent jakking off while they play Left4 Dead or Donkey Kong. Maybe some kid had a weird crush on Dixie Kong but its not because they got to throw a barell at her. Itz probably because he found her HOT!
How is showing a open head going to encourage compassion? All it encouraged in me iz a puke-fest. I waz pointing out the time because if they will play something very violent on the the news they usually play it on the 11oclock news. And I am not saying that vidoe gamez aren't violen't but most healthy ajusted people have the ability to seperate fiction from reality.
