  •  The media was so quick to blame video games (0+ / 0-)

    it was one of the first facts I saw reported on the TV Machine:  the perp played first person shooters.  As if that's more relevant than the symptoms that were highly suggestive of paranoid schizophrenia.  Then it gets even more ridiculous as the news bots start making connections to other suicide shooters who played video games.  Who would believe that video games are popular among young males?  

    What strikes me as the most relevant commonality between recent shooters is that so many seem to have suffered from paranoid schizophrenia, yet had no trouble buying guns.  In the face of this link, focusing on video guns takes a special sort of TV Machine inanity.
