Mainstream Media or Sideshow Farce?

Just read this account of how the media treats video games. Atrocious.

It confirms nearly everything I've written about how the media has worked with this topic. One-sided, shallow and reactionary. Bereft of useful information for the public. Childish and irresponsible. Do I need to go on?

We need to take this matter in our hands. Take the conversation to their parents. How to get the parents of little Jimmy to read a gaming blog, I have no idea. On Monday I'll fire the first flare to earn their trust. On Monday, Cathode Tan will post its interview with Andrew Bub, GamerDad. Hope to see you there.
