MEDIA VIOLENCE

Evidence inconclusive on alleged causal relationship between media violence and violent behaviour    

Laboratory experiments purporting to demonstrate relationship are criticized on grounds of artificiality   

Alternate explanation: Social learning theory, that suggests media violence provides scripts that teach children how and when to act aggressively

However, relationship between TV and real violence is bidirectional Watching violent TV fosters aggressiveness, but those who prefer to watch violent TV already have more aggressive tendencies*
