Tonight’s Penn & Teller: Bullshit! is the much-anticipated episode on video game violence.
The program airs at 10:00 p.m. Eastern/Pacific on Showtime. From the P&T:BS! website:
In episode 703, the duo debunks the theory of politicians and other alarmists that playing video games leads to teen violence by handing over a real semiautomatic weapon to a nine-year-old video game player to see if he becomes a human killing machine.
The promo video at left features a guy who is apparently an anti-game violence campaigner named Chris Cooney. I’ll ‘fess up that – in nearly five years of editing GamePolitics – I can’t remember hearing of the guy, so I’m curious to see what he’s all about. This is also the episode in which disbarred attorney Jack Thompson makes an appearance.
If you miss tonight’s show, the program will be repeated several times over the next few days.
