The Group: Part I

Audio will be available later today.

Linda Wertheimer moderates a discussion between students and teachers from Annandale High School in northern Virginia, parents, a child psychologist and an internet games expert, about some of the issues raised by last week's school shooting in Colorado. They discuss the influence of entertainment, including TV and movies, video games and the internet. The group grapples with how much blame can be placed on these various forms of entertainment. Kids like the internet, they like their movies, but they also recognize that both can desensitize people.
