Professor Defends Video Games in Wake of Mass Shootings
As the country struggles to find answers for the senseless deaths in two mass shootings over the weekend, at least one politician is pointing the figure of guilt at a usual suspect: video games. “I’ve always felt that it’s a problem for future generations and others,” Senator Kevin McCarthy said during a CNN interview on Sunday. “We’ve watched from studies, shown before, what it does to individuals, and you look at these photos of how it took place, you can see the actions within video games and others.” While Stetson University Professor Christopher Ferguson agrees today’s video games tend to be violent, he says they’re blamed only when it’s convenient to do so. “People tend to look for these cases of young male shooters, but then they ignore cases when a shooter is an older male, like the Las Vegas shooter — who was in his 60s,” he says. “Nobody talked about video games then.” Ferguson says in spite of the spike in mass shootings, violence is generally down in the United States, “and it decreased during the video game era.” Do you agree with Ferguson? If not video games, what is to blame for violence among young people?
Mariah Carey Says It’s an ‘Honor to Meet President Clinton and Her Husband’
Mariah took to Twitter on Monday (August 5th) to show her love for the Clintons. The singer may have appeared to make a typo in the caption that she included with the photos, but it was no typo. While attending Barbara Streisand’s show at Madison Square Garden, Mariah posted two separate pictures with the Clinton’s with a caption that read: “An honor to meet President Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton!” Carey wrote, followed by a smiley-face emoji to emphasize the joke. “Thank you for everything you have done and continue to do for our country.” Carey has met the Clintons before, a fan posted a picture of Carey meeting President Clinton in 1996 at the United States Capitol, then in 2001 both Carey and President Clinton came together for VH1’s “Save The Music” event. Who is better at shade, Mariah Carey or Chrissy Teigen?
