Since it is clear that exposure to violent images in the visual media (television, movies, and computer games) can lead to more violent behavior in children and adults, do you think that the television and movie producers have any responsibility to limit our exposure to violence on screen? Does the responsibility for limiting one’s exposure to violence in the visual media remain only with the viewer, who can choose to turn off the television, use a V-chip, not go to a movie, or play a certain video game? Why or why not? If you do think they have some responsibility to limit the viewer’s exposure to violence, how should it be limited? Should it be limited only for children? Are there any violent acts, situations, or images that should not be shown to adult audiences? Why or why not? You may want to conduct a key word search for the phrase “violence and media responsibility” to assist you in your discussion.
