The National Assn. of Broadcasters has issued a statement on Sen. Jay Rockefeller’s call for a study of videogame and video violence.
Spokesman Dennis Wharton said, “Given the events of the last
week, NAB believes a scientific study on the potential impact of video
violence on real-life violence is appropriate.”
Although Rockefeller is focusing on videogames, he also called for the Federal Trade Commission to look at the issue. That could mean a look at how the games are marketed, including on broadcast TV.
