CNN Blames Video Games For Men's Lack Of Ambition
Yep, just another missile aimed in the gamer's direction. And it comes from a mainstream media source...of course.
This one's gonna get some attention. And maybe I'll address it a little later in an editorial. But for now, head on over to CNN and read the article entitled, "Why Men Are In Trouble." There's a big picture of a dude playing a video game above the headline.
It first says that 18-34-year-old men are playing games more often than 12-17-year-old boys, and claims that while women are graduating college and finding good jobs, "too many men are not going to work, not getting married and not raising families." And here's one of the quotes from that piece that's going to really get arguments raging:
"Get off the video games five hours a day, get yourself together, get a challenging job and get married. It’s time for men to man up."
Just...just...give me a second. I have to process this. When I do, William J. Bennett is going to get a relatively large - and peeved - piece of my mind.
