'The Daily Show' tackles violent video games

'The Daily Show' tackles violent video games


Friday - June 23, 2006
While we are reminded time and time again that "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" is a news parody show, it never ceases to amaze me how spot on they are with the news that they cover (perhaps making the parody the fact that a parody show covers news better than the news). This was the case a couple of nights ago when "TDS" focused on the recent House Subcommittee on Commerce, Trade, and Consumer Protection hearings titled, "Violent and Explicit Video Games: Informing Parents and Protecting Children" (Jeremy's version of the hearings can be found here).

Mr. Stewart shows the ridiculousness of the hearing, which was conducted by old white men (and women) who have no understanding of video games whatsoever. While the segment is hilarious (Samantha Bee live from "San Andreas" is the highlight), it should also strike fear deep into your core, that these are the same men making decisions that affect each and every one of us each and every day. Oy vey.
