Monkey See, Monkey Do.
Van Stolk, Mary
The author cites empirical evidence and studies to support the thesis that television violence is not valuable as a sublimation for violence. Maintaining that television propaganda consists primarily of violence and mis-information about human behavior, and that children copy what they see, she concludes that television has taught people how to be violent and how to react to violence. She advocates swift measures to avert repercussions of exposure to this kind of propaganda, and the use of the medium to show people how to raise children and how to live with each other. (BBM)
