Trevor Noah Blasts Trump Claim That Video Games Inspire Shootings

OMB Press

Trump has made the issue personal, taking the unusual step last week of mentioning his concern for his 11-year-old son, Barron.

Video game makers and liberal-leaning media routinely claim that there is no link between violent video games and real-world criminal violence. "I look at some of the things he's watching and I say, how is that possible?" Rich Blumenthal (D-Conn.) rounded out the chorus of skeptical senators, telling the Post that "focusing entirely on video games distracts from the substantive debate we should be having about how to take guns out of the hands of risky people".

"The Entertainment Software Association (ESA), an industry lobbying group that sent a representative to the meeting, said it used the opportunity to "[discuss] the numerous scientific studies establishing that there is no connection between video games and violence".

"He was clearly concerned about some of this imagery that you're seeing in these ultra-violent video games that are being watched by children", Brent Bozell, president of the conservative Media Research Center and a frequent critic of video game violence, said in an interview with The Hill. "He was genuinely inquisitive".

The conversation lasted for nearly an hour and was "vigorous" but "respectful", and Trump seemed to be interested in hearing from all sides, said Melissa Henson of the Parents Television Council, a group that advocates against violence and sex in entertainment.

'I don't think there are easy answers and I don't think that we're going to be able to figure out the solution in the course of a one-hour conversation, ' Henson said. Both industries already have ratings systems in place, but Bozell said that they are insufficient at keeping graphic imagery out of the hands of children, despite what he sees as their potential to cause trauma.

Australia had five-and-a-half overs with the second new ball late on Saturday but were unable to conjure a wicket. The hosts dominated the opening two sessions of the day, even if the going was slow at times.

The meeting started off with a video that President Trump presented to all the attendees, showing scenes from "Call of Duty". 'These things are really violent'.

"During today's meeting, the group spoke with the president about the effect that violent video games have on our youth, especially young males", the White House statement reads.

'Like all Americans, we are deeply concerned about the level of gun violence in the United States, ' Hewitt said.

"Video games are plainly not the issue: entertainment is distributed and consumed globally, but the USA has an exponentially higher level of gun violence than any other nation", it said ahead of the Washington talks, which the White House said also involved experts on violence. Trump's younger brother Robert Trump is on the board of ZeniMax. Though Trump highlighted the opposite conclusion in the White House statement following the meeting, the ESA said it "appreciate [s] the president's receptive and comprehensive approach to this discussion".

In 2013, then-Vice President Joe Biden, a Democrat, met with industry leaders after the massacre at a Newtown, Connecticut elementary school that left 26 dead.
