@Kuro Fox: Y'know, you're probably right about that. Anthropomorphic animals have been something of a pet peeve (no pun intended) of mine for some time, I don't really know why. I can handle them well enough in contex (cf Loony Toons or VG Cats), but I found this jarring for some reason. Sorry.

There are real problems in the world sure. That does not make it ok for a news station to cover a subject poorly. With the Mass Effect story they told Lawrence it was like pornography wtf? You should be upset that Fox chooses to "cover" video games instead of real issues.

@Dead Herald: So because there are other problems in the world news should focus on blaming video games for social problems? School shootings lets blame video games, sex also video games. Instead of covering things accurately let's sensationalize subjects.
