(http://www.babybag.com/articles/amaviol.htm>Television has been popular since the 1960’s and is always getting more and more popular the continuing growth for higher ratings and more money makes people forget about the consequences of the shows they feature. Some of the most popular shows are not scripted and made in a studio.
They are of real people and doing pranks and doing stunts to and around other people. Shows like this do have ratings and warnings at the beginning of the show but they dont really stop any one from watching unless its a small child watching television with there parents. But some television shows have violent images in them and still have a low rating like cartoons have bloody gun filled images and still have a rating of PG or less. Because of these types of shows that seem to have low ratings for the content that they are showing I thought I should research about that(The media violence mythRhodes, Richard>. After a little searching I came upon a few good stories and sites that said many studies by or for the government are very poorly made and possibley fraudulent in some cases. After a few E-mails I think I found the truth.Order now
(http://www.babybag.com/articles/amaviol.htm>When television was first introduced to North American homes around the 1950’s there was only a select few families that could afford a television set. In only one decade the amount of people skyrocketed and only 10 percent of people DIDNT own a television and now less than 1 percent DONT own one in fact more people in North America own televisions than telephones. With this, very quickly growing popularity of television is going to be miss used just for ratings and financial gain without recognizing the damage that could be done on the vulnerable minds of young children.
We would think that violent images would be hidden by the creators of childrens television shows but Saturday morning cartoons are more violent than prime time.
(http://www.yaaams.org/tvviolence.shtml> These images have been proven in many legitimate studies to be very hazardous to younger childrens minds especially those under the age of eight years old because most eight year olds cant tell the difference between fantasy and reality. Some children can be traumatized for life by these images they can also develop aggressive , anti-social behavior.
They will also see themselves as victims or may fear being a victim. They can also became desensitized which will make them less sensitive toward violence. After seeing many violent images we begin to like them and want to continue watching them even if its on television or real life.
shtml>When we watch violent television some of us get the feeling for real violence and thats why they came out with shows like Jackass, Cky and other skits on other shows that pull pranks on sometimes random people and themselves. These types of shows do not support people doing dangerous stunts but they do accept videos sent to them of people doing stunts and they show these on their show. Of course with an option like that to have there fifteen minutes of fame many people will put them selves in danger just to be on television . These stunts that people pull on themselves and others often go wrong a young teen got serious burns after setting his hand on fire and a 21 year old broke her back that could have ruined her modeling career with serious injuries like this we would think that the rating system would change or the shows content would be limited in some way. Personally I and many of my friends have done stunts much like those portrayed on jackass and I have never seen the show and the people making personal videos admitted it wasnt Jackasss fault they got hurt it was just a very stupid idea, they also said they probably wouldnt have tried to do the stunt if they never would have seen Jackass.
babybag.com/articles/amaviol.htm>The ratings for Jackass are probably appropriate but what could keep people from .
