Down the rabbit hole of violence

So for my final blog about broadcast I thought it would be interesting to look at the history of broadcast standards, and how they have affected the broadcast medium as a whole, and, in particular, journalism.

Parental guidance is advised

Humans are obsessed with violence. It seems to be ingrained in our subconscious nature – in our very DNA. How often have you heard a car’s hooter screech and you whip your head around expecting (or hoping) to see a crash? More than I care to admit, I can tell you that.

#NotAllMen, #YesAllWomen: Let's keep talking.

The Isla Vista Killing is not the first incident of misogynistic mass murder in the US – but it is the first to stir up a social media storm of this magnitude.

For those of you who are still out of the loop: on Friday night (23 May), 22-year-old UCSB student Elliot Rodger killed six people and injured thirteen before turning the gun on himself.

Does pornography cause sexual violence?

Pornography…why this issue? Again? It’s a thought provoking topic as evidenced by the scholarly work done to investigate the effects of pornography on children and adults alike. However, most research focused on pornography as an indistinct phenomenon with respect to sexual violence. How does pornography differ across various media platforms and to what extent does it differ? And to what extent is sexual violence such as rape committed as a result of pornographic influence?

Violence is as violence… does?

When I shoot a marine in the face, it is I who aim the crosshair and click the event into vicarious existence. It is I who watch the blood and apparent pain for the smallest of moments - a sensation of accomplishment, not remorse. It is I who replicate this wanton violence. I… not some gaming algorithm.
