Yep. Some of the most horrible and violent imagery on TV can be seen on you local news and CNN. Its always something terrible like a school shooting, a Rape, or killing in the name of God, and if its not that its some propaganda.
That's the glory of capitalism my friend - exploit, exploit, exploit. And CNN and stuff like that is specifically what I avoid. That film Gone Girl did a good job showing how media can create firestorms.
