Lieberman Slams GTA

Democratic presidential hopeful Joseph Lieberman, who has long since led the charge against violent games lashed out at the Grand Thefy Auto Series this Sunday. The Connecticut senator called the game, "Grand Theft Auto," "horrendous" and said its maker, New York-based Rockstar Games Inc., ought to be more responsible.

"Video games have gotten better over time," Lieberman said during a women's forum at Dartmouth College sponsored by Lifetime Television. "But there's a couple out there that are horrendous."

"You ought to see one called "Grand Theft Auto," he said. "The player is rewarded for attacking a woman, pushing her to the ground, kicking her repeatedly and then ultimately killing her, shooting her over and over again."

"I call on the entertainment companies -- they've got a right to do that, but they have a responsibility not to do it if we want to raise the next generation of our sons to treat women with respect."

Don't like what he has to say? Excercise your right to vote this coming November and speak your mind.
