Violence in Music Videos: Examining the Prevalence and Context of Physical Aggression.
Smith, Stacy L.; Boyson, Aaron R.
Journal of Communication, v52 n1 p61-83 Mar 2002
Examines violence in music video programming. Reveals that 15% of music videos feature violence, and most of that aggression is sanitized, not chastised, and presented in realistic contexts. Discusses the findings in terms of the risk that exposure to violence in each channel and genre may be posing to viewers' learning of aggression, fear, and emotional desensitization. (SG)
