    Simpsons an adult cartoon? I think you'll find its a family programme.
    The point of the video is to illustrate the influences that television can cause, not just the influences that kids TV can cause.
    It was homework for a psychology class. Lighten up!

    What is "aggressive behavior". Is that actual violence or somethign else. I've heard that in some studies they counted children raising their voices and arguing over who gets what toy as "aggressive behavior".

    Also the bobo doll experiment was pure bunk, of course when you show a child a film of adults beating up on a doll and they put the kid in with the same doll and surprise, surprise the kid beat it up. That completely ignores factors like parenting in child development.

    I don't want to pick on emmaspif here but look at the real world results to see the flaw in this argument. Violence in TV, movies, and video games has skyrocketed in the past 20 years and if the Bobo experiment was accurate then there should have been a massive spike in violent crime.

    The opposite is true, violent crime has gone down since then. Kids shows in Japan like Dragonball have much more violence than shows here in the US but their crime rate is a fraction of ours.

    Violence in the real world is not a product of violence in the media. Violence in the media is a result of violence in the real world. Media is expression, not mind control.
