293w ago - And so it begins: CNN reporter Glenn Beck has gone proper off on one, warning parents on television of the new 'murder celebrator' Grand Theft Auto IV, which he says is "training our kids to be killers". Ban this sick filth!
"Whatever happened to Pong?!" asks a furious Beck, going into a frenzied rant we thought only existed in GTA's own media-mocking radio shows.
"Here's what you need to know tonight; in Grand Theft Auto your son, husband or boyfriend can hire a prostitute, have sex with her and then beat her to death with a baseball bat.
"When a police officer comes after him, he can either light that police officer on fire or cut him in half with a chainsaw. This is entertainment?!"
The CNN presenter continues: "We are training our kids to be killers and we are training our sons to treat women like whores."
Brilliant ideas there from Glenn, but unfortunately as far as we know there's no chainsaw or flamethrower in GTA IV. We dare not suggest he hasn't played it, though...

This should come as no surprise. Though, news reporters are meant to report the 'truth' and nothing but it, that doesn't mean they tweak it sometimes to conform to their views. Many News TV personalities are discreetly conservative in their reviews over topics and verbalize.
Unfortunately these ideas entrench on the American populus entire and people tend to adopt these ideas to conform in order to avoid criticism from the outside. However, I agree that 5 year olds should NOT play this game.
