I object to this sort of criticism because it's often accompanied by the implicit message that the proles shouldn't be allowed to watch it, or that it should never have been made because the The Wrong People Will Get Ideas.

I think Evil and Problematic media is some of the most interesting and valuable media.

Thereís also no way you can even objectively come to the conclusion that some form of media contributed to something bad that happened in the first place and itís silly to act like thatís a real thing.

It's the kinda thing that should rightly destroy all your credibility because it completely ignores literally every aspect of someone's life, influences and conditioning except that they consume a different entertainment product to you.

There's tons of stuff it's okay to question the draw of, though. Being exposed to those thing won't necessarily corrupt the masses, but they can definitely serve as rallying points. I do think the vidyagames poo poo is dumb as hell since it's way too broad and the smallest subset of people are playing "for the violence." But if you're specifically a fan of say, Custer's Revenge, I reserve the right to judge the poo poo out of you.

Also, Simpsons writers thinking they're on the cutting edge of Maurice LaMarche doing Orson Welles. Dude's been doing Orson Welles for at least thirty five years.

Out of all The Real Ghostbuster ghosts, monsters, demons, and other supernatural creatures on the show, this one scared me the most.

He even dubbed over Vincent D'Onofrio as Orson Welles in Ed Wood. Somehow the Simpsons are the last piece of media to utilize this man's gift.

The Critic is the better cartoon turns out.

There are a couple of data points that one could point to as being media influenced (such as a huge uptick in paleontology makers following the release of Jurrasic Park, a huge uptick in forensics majors after CSI became a breakout hit)

But the main concern in the 80s and 90s was that bad media would make the youth more violent and/or imitate risky sexual behaviors. The first was easy to dismiss since youth violence has been dropping across the board for the past 30 years. The idea that a teen might get a girl pregnant because pop culture told him he's not a man unless he has sex is a bit more plausible. But no, today's youth is having less sex than previous generations and teen pregnancy rates are also way down. That, and the rate of sex crimes has gone down in nearly every country as porn become more accessible.

Other than that, we know that mental health issues and suicide rates have been steadily increasing since 2007 (even among klds), which we can only speculate is due to increased access to social media and the internet.

IMO if the media can foster anti-social attitudes in young people, the types of media they consume seems less relevant than whether or not it causes them to isolate themselves from all IRL social connections, and only interacting with communities that share their exact opinions and outlooks. Which is why we see the fans of more "wholesome" properties (Steven Universe, MLP, boy bands, etc) also sending death threats over the internet

Again though, the isolation is confusing correlation with causation. No one goes 'Instead of going to a party with my friends I'll stay home and watch My Little Pony' unless they got serious poo poo going on.
