Federal GTA Lawsuit

Suit seeks to ban sales of popular video game (thanks Mike Martinez): "A lawsuit by Haitian groups that asks for the top-selling video game 'Grand Theft Auto: Vice City' to be removed from store shelves will be decided in federal court. " Also, Give Back Take Two (thanks Hump and Steve Nutley) has complaints from The New York Post about GTA, apparently making the case for how depicting violence in a game is worse than molestation: "This is 10,000 times worse than the worst thing anybody thinks Michael Jackson ever did to a little boy."

I could probably turn around and say some very nasty things about liberals. But not much of a point right now, maybe later. I will say, that I am a conservative-libertarian I was very much a socialist-liberal before that. I know both camps very well. Onto the topic at hand.

Now if the average person can't draw the distinction that the NYPost article is in the liberal camp then I really can't say much, it's a rag--has been for along time. It's not any different then CNN, both exist to push a very specific type of agenda and a very specific type of view. That of trying to save the world or trying to save people from themselfs. The biggest problem is this, there are no solutions being offered just a shifting of blame. It's all 'their' fault. When someone folds and gives in, it's not good enough. Does this sound familiar to other things? Think long and hard on this.

Unfortunatly, the average reporter anymore doesn't report news in an unbiased sense. They report whatever they are told, or whatever they think 'will save the world' in which ever case and in whatever agenda that might be for them. Even at that, the average person here should be able to see that between the article itself and the reaction from the comments. I wonder why? Perhaps because it effects them personally or because it may? Interesting, I wonder if more people thought like this on more issues what the news and reporting would be like.

Might explain a few things that I'm not going to go into here, this is a gaming site and not a political forum after all. Tho this does dance on a few things after all, politics, society, etc. This in the basic sense is a special interest group trying to push an agenda, and an idiot of a reporter trying to play on the 'I support group X, because I'm trying to save the people from themselfs' Bah. Now...I really wonder...who's the funding behind this group and what lawyer is going to support them. *That* would be very interesting to see.
