More Blame Placed on Entertainment Media for School Shootings

by Bill Fancher

WASHINGTON, DC (AgapePress) – Jews for Morality Director Yehuda Levin blames the entertainment media in part for the rash of school shootings over the past few years.

He charges the multi-media groups have profited from peddling violence in every area of their industry. Despite mounting criticism against them, Rabbi Levin does not expect the conglomerates to change.

“There’s a tremendous motive over here for these super-conglomerates to just continue to spew forth this kind of sewage, desensitizing our children and promoting cop-killing, rape, and societal maladjustment,” Levin says.

Levin says for the large multi-media groups, profits talk much louder than social responsibility. He is convinced the entertainment industry is creating a disregard for life and is training new kid killers with music and video games. The pro-family leader wants some sort of censorship to be implemented.

“I think that it’s really important that we start to take our destiny back into our hands,” the rabbi says, “and the people really have to demand some sort of control of these out-of-control conglomerates that are force-feeding our children, or seducing our children with all of this garbage.”

Rabbi Levin says that will prevent the violent trend we are experiencing from expanding.

Larry King Gets Free Pass on Column Attribution

The benefits of being held to no standards. National Review’s Washington Bulletin on Tuesday, picking up on an item about how Larry King lifted part of his USA Today column from fun facts circulating on the Internet, contrasted the non-condemnation of King with how the Boston Globe suspended the conservative Jeff Jacoby for non-attribution of some anecdotes.

Here’s a reprint of the March 13 item by John J. Miller and Ramesh Ponnuru:

Why won't Larry King credit his sources?

The Boston Globe suspended columnist Jeff Jacoby for four months without pay last summer for doing what Larry King did yesterday in his USA Today column. As Alex Gordon of Hockey Digest pointed out on Jim Romenesko's media website, King “appears to have fallen prey to the sin of cutting and pasting from one of those oft-forwarded 'little known facts' e-mails” right into his piece. Gordon says a quick web search turned up a dozen sites containing the material King tossed into his column. They are, of course, not credited. “The laziest column writer in the world just set a new standard for laziness,” writes Gordon.

King wrote: “Dreamt is the only English word that ends in the letters 'mt.'… Almonds are a member of the peach family…. Tigers have striped skin, not just striped fur…. All clocks in the movie Pulp Fiction are stuck on 4:20…. Two-thirds of the world's eggplants are grown in New Jersey…. (Is this fascinating or what?) The longest one-syllable word in the English language is screeched…. A shark is the only fish that can blink with both eyes…There are 293 ways to make change for a dollar…. All 50 states are listed across the top of the Lincoln Memorial…. Maine is the only state whose name is just one syllable….. Los Angeles' full name is 'El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora la Reina de Los Angeles de Porciuncula.'”
