Episode 7: Regulating Violent Video Games

In Episode 7 of Meet The Professors, Craig Anderson (Distinguished Professor of Psychology and Director of the Center for the Study of Violence, Iowa State University), Professor Fred Galves, and host Deana Pollard Sacks (Roberson King Professor of Law, Texas Southern University), discuss various legislative attempts to regulate the sale of violent video games to minors, and the courts' opinions striking down all such sales regulations on First Amendment grounds. The professors compare United Supreme Court cases concerning regulation of speech, point out stark inconsistencies among the cases, and posit political reasons for the inconsistencies.
