Effect of Video Violence on the Audience. You may use your text, the Internet, and other appropriate sources. Just be sure to be thorough and complete. And remember to justify and support (give me the WHY behind) your responses.

Simply put, a sentence or two will not suffice.
Discuss the following: One of the most (if not THE most) researched topics in media is the effect of video violence on the audience. As noted in your text, “Concerns about media violence and its effects on viewers, especially young adults and children, generates heated debate among families, parents, educators, activists, the media industry, and legislators.” Further, “…there is general consensus that viewing too much violent or objectionable content might, under some circumstances, have serious social and personal consequences.”
Also, there has been a modest but consistent association between viewing violent TV programs or other video content and aggressive tendencies. How should this information influence or help set programming decisions and Federal communication policy? Should programming be regulated on the basis of this information?

The quotes should be complete sentences (no more, less) and should be incorporate-d in your essay to illustrate your ideas. Please, cite your sources in a clickable reference list at the end. Also, do not copy without providing proper attribution (quotation marks and in-line citations). Also, write an essay format, not in bullet form, numbering, or another list format. It would be best if you use your own words. Lastly, proofread your work and run it through Grammarly for thorough confirmation.
