Jan. 18: Fridays With Uncle Fred

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 04:08 PM CDT
A serious topic this morning.  Does playing violent video games lead to violent behavior?  We spoke with Matthew Eastin, PhD, an Associate Progessor of Communications at UT-Austin about this.  The short answer is "no," violent games won't cause someone to act violently.  But it can contribute to a change in their behavior.  It gets complicated, so we spoke more in depth on the issue with Eastin in a keyetv.com exclusive.  (Watch interview here.)
