MEDIA VIOLENCE: FACTS & STATISTICS

» Research indicates that media violence has not just increased in quantity; it has also become more graphic, sexual, and sadistic.

» A September 2000 Federal Trade Commission (FTC) report showed that 80 percent of “R” rated movies,70 percent of restricted video games, and 100 percent of music with “explicit content” warning labels were being marketed to children under 17.

» By the time the average child is eighteen years old, they will have witnessed 200,000 acts of violence and 16,000 murders.

» Media violence is especially damaging to young children (under 8) because they cannot easily tell the difference between real life and fantasy.

» Despite falling crime rates across North America, disturbing images of violent crime continue to dominate news broadcasting.

» Two-thirds of Hollywood films released in 2001 were rated “R.”

» Surveys have found that 82 percent of the American public consider movies too violent.

» Most of the top-selling video games (89%) contained violent content, almost half of which was of a serious nature.

» The highly criticized video game Grand Theft Auto 3 was initially banned in Australia for its graphic violence and sexual content. The game grossed $300 million in the United States by the end of 2002.

» The level of violence during Saturday morning cartoons is higher than the level of violence during prime time. There are 3-5 violent acts per hour in prime time, versus 20-25 acts per hour on Saturday morning.

» Nearly 75 percent of violent scenes on television feature no immediate punishment for or condmendation of violence.

    What a great message Tammera, your work is going from strength to strength. Isn’t it appalling too that a great percentage of the violence that is shown depict violence to women?
    xx

  • YES AND IF YOU VISIT THE SITE I LISTED…

    IT SHOWS EVEN MORE HIGHLITES …
    ESPECIALLY REGARDING WOMEN…

    THIS MIGHT BE A GREAT ISSUE FOR THE MAGAZINE SOMETIME..:)

    THANK YOU ANNA FOR YOUR KIND SUPPORT…;)

    Good Stuff Tammera.
    It’s Funny Because It Is Something I Have Noticed Over Here Also.
    I Think It’s When You Stop Watching TV & Then You Have A Look Again That It Hits You.
    A Prime Example Is A Programme Over Here Called “Shameless” To Me This Has Lost The Plot Completely (Personal Opinion) Can’t Even Watch It Now.
    Good Work

  • THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR YOUR INSIGHTFUL COMMENT…

    YES ..SINCE I AM MOSTLY BEDBOUND DUE TO DISABILITY…I HAVE FORCED MYSELF TO WATCH MOSTLY THE DISCOVERY CHANNEL, SCIENCE CHANNEL, PBS, HISTORY CHANNELS AND THE LIKE…

    I TELL YOU… I DO WANDER BACK AS YOU SAY…AND WOW…

    I DONT REMEMBER THIS KIND OF VIOLENCE GROWING UP ON TV…

    AND I THINK IT IS BEING REFLECTED IN OUR SOCIETY ALSO.

    I DONT REMEMBER NEAR THE AMOUNT OF VIOLENCE…
    30 YEARS AGO A SERIAL KILLER WAS RARE…NOWADAYS IT IT BECOMMING MORE COMMONPLACE

    AND THE SAD PART IS SO MUCH VIOLENCE IS BEING REFLECTED IN MEDIA AND GAMES AGAINST WOMEN AND CHILDREN…

    ITS VERY FRIGHTENING WHEN YOU REALLY LOOK AND SEE THE FACTS.

    CHILDREN RAISED ON A STEADY DIET OF VIOLENCE IS DESTRUCTIVE TO HUMANITY.

    AND THAT IS MY POINT HERE…IF IT IS WIDELY ACCEPTED AS THE NORM AS CHILDREN …WHERE ARE WE HEADED ?….

    EVEN SOME MUSIC FORMS HAVE GOTTEN MORE VIOLENT.
    ENOUGH OF MY RANT…YOU GET MY POINT..SORRY…:p

    ESPECIALLY TO WOMEN AND CHILDREN,
    USUALLY THE MOST VULNERABLE OF SOCIETY.
