This paper discusses violence in the mass media and its impact on children. It contends that the degree as well as the amount of violence that is present in the mass media grows each year with the result that every year children are exposed to more and more lethal violence. The author explains that the result of this exposure to high levels of violence is that children become more accepting of violence and eventually more disposed to commit acts of violence themselves.

From the Paper:

"It is all too easy to dismiss the importance of violence in the mass media. Most of us grew up watching cartoon characters bop each other over the head after all and never felt the urge to buy a semi-automatic pistol and slaughter a dozen of our classmates."
