    Fox & Friends host Gretchen Carlson and Fox News contributor Keith Ablow distorted research findings to warn of a "terrifying link" between video games and mass shootings while dismissing the role of high powered firearms in those incidents.
    During the September 10 edition of Fox & Friends, Carlson claimed, "brand new research suggests there is a terrifying link between video games and violent behavior," before showing images of recent mass shooters who purportedly "were big gamers." Ablow -- claiming that all of the shooters were "addicted to violent video games" -- said that a recent study that found "watching violent video games increases aggression and decreases empathy" to support his claim that video games are linked to mass shootings.
    Carlson concluded the segment by saying, "This whole is issue is so much more complicated than just gun control, there are so many other factors, mental illness [and] video games are just two of them":

    UGH! It is because they are VIOLENT PSYCHOPATHS that they are ADDICTED to violent video games. Also, violent psychopaths aren't the only people addicted to violent video games.

    If fox had any since, they would know the contrapositive rule from math.

    Provable statement : All cars in this parking lot are red.
    Assumed/False statement : All red cars are in this parking lot.

    And the worse is, there are so many uneducated "Decision makers" that watch fox news and take it all as FACT because fox claims to be a "News Organization"

    You know All murderers have eaten bread within 24 hours of killing some one. So if eating bread and some one killing Maybe there's a correlation between the two? Maybe be they should outlaw bread, (this is the logic they use to get Fecal Leaking illegal)

    It is that they're introverted, and (based on no premise, but only common sense) most introverts play video games.
