Violence In Entertainment: Special Report from Variety

In response to the Sandy Hook tragedy, if not the on average 87 deaths per day in the United States due to gun violence, Variety has devoted a special supplemental issue VIOLENCE & ENTERTAINMENT (January 8, 2013)  featuring entertainment industry leaders' essays on the topic-- "a variety of voices looking for solutions."  Rather than focus solely on how the media (TV, movies, video games) portray violence and how often, contributors weigh in from multiple perspectives; essays raise questions about psychiatric drugs, football culture, gun control, parenting, mental health, the Hollywood liberal, and evil, to name a few.
