Mrs Clinton derides 'immorality' of GTA
Tapping in to the vein of fear and misinformation which surrounds the impact of violent games and other media upon the nation's youth, New York senator and former Presidential wife Hilary Clinton has demanded more Congress activity to curb violent games. Mrs Clinton believes titles like GTA may be corrupting America's youth, and wants more done about the matter, positioning herself on the far-right, away from her own Democratic allegiances. She wants a new study researching the matter to be commissioned. "Children are playing a game that encourages them to have sex with prostitutes and then murder them," she commented. "This is a silent epidemic of media desensitisation that teaches kids it's OK to diss people because they are a woman, they're a different colour or they're from a different place."
A report in the UK's Times broadsheet says that she is demanding a $90 million enquiry into the effects of videogames upon kids, and their development, and this move is being regarded by many analysts as an attempt to garner traditional right-wing support for a Presidential bid in the next race for the White House. More on this soon.
