NIMF's David Walsh Interviewed in Game Informer

July 2, 2008 -

Dr. David Walsh, president of the National Institute on Media and the Family, is the subject of an  interview in the July issue of Game Informer.

The politically-connected Walsh, whose organization delivers its Annual Video Game Report Card each holiday season, is described by the magazine as "one of gaming's most thoughtful and reasoned critics." He dishes on a number of topics, including:

  • ESRB ratings (watchdog-ish, cautiously supportive)
  • his criticism of the Grand Theft Childhood book (disagrees with its premise)
  • his thoughts on video game legislation (opposes censorship)
  • Jack Thompson (publicly distanced himself from Thompson)

Regarding legislation, Walsh told GI:

I'm not in favor of censorship. Once we delegate to the government what we can and can't say and freedom of expression - and video games are a form of expression - that's a very slippery slope. I think government can have a role. I think the role they've been playing is the "bully pulpit" to raise awareness.

As to Thompson, Walsh said:

Extreme positions create a lot of heat but very little light. Television and talk radio love extreme positions. So there are folks out there who do not hesitate to take positions that they can't defend. You get the these food fights going on that talk radio loves, but don't really advance our knowledge and understanding whatsoever. It got to the point where I had to publlcily distance myself from Jack Thompson. 

Distance himself, indeed.

The high-profile split with Thompson came in October, 2005. The story was broken by GamePolitics, and set Internet tongues wagging for days. Read Walsh's letter breaking ties with Thompson here.

Re: NIMF's David Walsh Interviewed in Game Informer

Too many of these comments are full to the brim with EPIC WIN. My head can't take it.

I AM A LOST SOUL, CONDEMNED TO HAUNT THE DREAMS OF JOHN BRUCE "JACK" THOMPSON UNTIL HIS CRUSADE AGAINST VIDEO GAMES ENDS. SOMEONE, PLEASE! END MY SUFFERING!

I AM DOOMED TO HAUNT JACK THOMPSON'S DREAMS UNTIL HIS CRUSADE AGAINST VIDEO GAMES ENDS.

Re: NIMF's David Walsh Interviewed in Game Informer

Anybody notice how pissed off Jack's been since he got his award or whatever?  Even when he's in full on name-calling, lawsuit-threatening mode, he's usually more smug and condescending.  Now he's just angry.  Any guesses on how soon he'll shoot somebody?

Re: NIMF's David Walsh Interviewed in Game Informer

I'm guessing he thought everybody would be super impressed with his receipt of some major award.  The award is for FREEDOM afterall.  He probably believes that we should all bow down and kiss his feet because he's fighting for FREEDOM and this proves it.  Instead, everyone is goofing on him and the award has been proved to be nothing but something handed out by a bunch of right-wing religious zealots.  (Note: I'm a conservative Republican, and those freaks scare me.)

Jack represents FREEDOM in the same way Enron represented good corporate practices.

Re: NIMF's David Walsh Interviewed in Game Informer

Jack represents Freedom in the same way David Duke represents racial equality.

Re: NIMF's David Walsh Interviewed in Game Informer

While I don't have much in the way of liking for this dude, I'm hoping here, that he'd be able to stop in his tracks and realise how far off the path he's strayed.. If only for the sake of his ill wife and young kid, I'll gladly pray (Even while I'm not a christian, or even religious at all) for him to realise how much his firey(making up words here) and brimstony(making up more words here) rage is hurting himself and his family..

For that matter, does he even realise how angry he sounds?

------------------------------------------------------------------------ Oooh! You mean there are people around with the mythical "Common Sense"?

Re: NIMF's David Walsh Interviewed in Game Informer

I don't know how anyone can make this any more clear to you Jack.  You yourself claimed that you made publicly known that you support Walsh.  Now understand that Walsh thinks you are a liar, a hypocrite and an asshole.  He doesn't WANT your support.  THAT is why he distanced himself from you.  You are poison to your own crusade.

 

On the other hand that means you are the greatest ally that the gaming industry and gamers have ever had!

Re: NIMF's David Walsh Interviewed in Game Informer

I for one would love to have a polite debate with Jack Thompson regarding the topic of video game content. But I'm no fool, and I'm not naive enough to give Jack Thompson the benefit of the doubt anymore. His stunning lack of class or common sense have killed any serious attempts to communicate with him.

This man (if you can even call him that at this point) is most likely going to be disbarred due to his own childish idiocy & lies. Anyone who disagrees with his views are called "allies of the gaming industry", and rebuffed no matter what they have to say. The only times he reacts in a sane manner are when the cameras are rolling. Or FAUX news.

As my fellow GP readers can attest, he's a very different guy when trolling the GP boards. This man KILLS benefit of the doubt. He killed it a long time ago. I look forward to his upcoming disbarment. He made his bed, now he can sleep in it.

Re: NIMF's David Walsh Interviewed in Game Informer

Moving the subject away from Jack, does anyone have a quote from Walsh on Grand Theft Childhood? I definitely want to hear how he can defend his positions and still say Olson and Kutner are wrong, when they have pointed out the numerous flaws in the studies that support his position.

Easy solution:

Get the ESRB to enforce ratings themselves. No more controversey(for the most part), no more digressing from the more important political issues.

Letter to Mr. Thompson

Hopefully the omnipresent force of the universe (be it God, Allah, or the Flying Spaghetti Monster) writes a letter to Jack Thompson asking him to stop using His name for endorsing reasons.

Several hundred years ago, there was another group whom carried out "God's will".  They were called Crusaders, and anyone who has read a history book should know what happened there.

Just a little black humor to open up with.  Please forgive me.

In any event, take away any kind of sanctioning or endorsement issues, I'm not surprised that Dr. Walsh decided to distance himself from Mr. Thompson.  His [Mr. Thompson] reasons behind his goal, if anyone is even sure anymore, is a positive one.  I don't think it is to totally ban violent video games as a whole, just to keep them out of the hands of kids.  I think that is something that most people can reason with. 

However, Mr. Thompson, your tactics borderline on being crass.  For one, I seriously hope that you do not accept payment for these victims of alleged video game related/caused crimes.  If your fight is truly a just cause, you should not use it to line your pockets.  Also, I think another reason that you come off as being "an asshole" (not meaning to call you an asshole, just a perception that people have of you) is that you come off as insulting.  For example, you come on to this website and call gamers perverts and nitwits.  Mr. Thompson, these are the very people you should be trying to convince.  I, for one, do not consider myself a pervert and a nitwit.  I have my flaws, but who doesn't.  I do consider myself (not trying to blow smoke up my own ass) quite an intelligent and upstanding member of society.  I work 40 hours (at least) a week and pay my own bills.  I've never been convicted of a crime or been considered "mentally defective".  I am 26 years old and have been playing video games for about 20 of those years.  I think it is a great medium to express ideas and also have fun.  I think of video games as an art form that is still going through its adolescent years, almost like film and rock music did last century.

I've been a frequent visitor to this website [GamePolitics.com] since late 2005, and have followed their coverage of you.  I believe that Dennis has been more than forthcoming with all material related to you.  I also feel that he has been very generous in giving you a medium to express yourself, unsensored, even when you are insulting readers, myself included.

I won't go into the struggle with the Florida Bar.  That issue is rather irrelevant at this point.  You being a lawyer doesn't really have anything to do with your fight.  If you are disbarred, and you continue the fight, I commend you.  It takes a certain amount of character to keep going, no matter whom may kick you down.  You may, however, wish to consider changing your tactics.  Whenever I read about you, or see you on television, you seem rather standoffish.  Debate is good.  With debate, compromises can be made.  Instead of working against people and pushing what seems to be "a Jack Thompson agenda", try working with people instead.  You are already a fixture in the video game world, no doubt, but become a positively perceived fixture.  Every individual can change how people perceive them.  If you are better perceived, people will be more receptive of you.

You can take all this with a grain of salt and dismiss it as the rantings of a "perverted video gamer".  That is fine. but as an aspriing journalist, I can only tell you that if you need to turn your cause into a message instead of a fight.

Thank you for your time,

Re: Letter to Mr. Thompson

Hear hear! If anti-gaming people were polite and actualy did debate properly I'd be much more willing to listen to what they had to say. That Walsh fellow sounds like someone who might be a good person to sit down with and discuss the whole thing at length with for instance.

Though unfortunately I seriously doubt Jack will take any of this to heart :(

Re: Letter to Mr. Thompson

We, as gamers, must also be polite.  Instead, however, we see some responses with one simple word:  PWND!

Re: Letter to Mr. Thompson

The problem here is that I think just about everybody, myself included, initially tried to be civil to Jack and engage him in meaningful dialogue.  Jack's just not interested.  No matter how polite you are to him, his responses consist of:

"You're a bunch of nitwits."

"Gamers are Hitler incarnate."

"I'll sue you."

and "NO U!"

And, yes, I've been threatened with a Jack Thompson lawsuit.  Of course, the threat of a Jack Thompson lawsuit is akin to the threat of invasion from Luxembourg.

Re: NIMF's David Walsh Interviewed in Game Informer

Damn Jack, how does it feel to get owned so badly with logic and reason?

Is it awful Jack? Does it burn? Is that why you've inexplicably had nothing to say at this point?

Re: NIMF's David Walsh Interviewed in Game Informer

Game addict perverts? I'm sorry but I'm a much better representation of a "normal American" then you are or ever have been Jacky my boy.

Re: NIMF's David Walsh Interviewed in Game Informer

You all ready for the really funny part? There's actualy a signifgant number of small time game devs in Utah. Jack if you're worried about 'gaming perverts' or whatever I think ya came to the wrong state sir.

Re: NIMF's David Walsh Interviewed in Game Informer

I would like to have seen im questioned about the contrast between NIMF's video game availablity report, and the Fed's. Maybe ask him why they had much more positive results from basicly the same time period.

What did he say about Grand Theft Childhood?

I want to hear his arguements against the book so I can defend it.

Re: NIMF's David Walsh Interviewed in Game Informer

I have to agree with Phoenix...my impression is that Walsh has got a personality for politics.  He can seem reasonable in one article, but I think he has been a big factor in whipping up anti-game hysteria in the populace.  Like many anti-game folks, he simply ignores information that doesn't fit his view and highlights information (ignoring it's flaws) that supports his views.  I'd guess (without knowing him) that he might be a "nice guy" who'd make a great neighbor...but let's not mix that up with reasonableness.  This fellow is responsible for grossly misinforming the public about video games.

Re: NIMF's David Walsh Interviewed in Game Informer

I'd guess (without knowing him) that he might be a "nice guy" who'd make a great neighbor...

See, that's the thing we like about Walsh. Yeah he's generally full of it, but he's usually polite about it. We've weathered enough ad hominum attacks, that critics that don't usually use them are a refreshing change.

Re: NIMF's David Walsh Interviewed in Game Informer

Walsh seems to change his tune every other month, I don't believe half the things he says and the other half I take with a grain of salt. Didn't he want to dismantle the ESRB and have his own group's rating system put in place after Hot Coffee? Did he speak out against the Minnesota bill back before it was passed?

Re: NIMF's David Walsh Interviewed in Game Informer

Hey Jack,

When are you going to file that lawsuit against me? I even sent you my name and my lawyer's name and number almost 2 years ago now.

That's right, you can't sue me. You can't even file paperwork anymore.

As I said before, sue me. I dare you. I'll counter-sue you so fast it will make your head spin. My lawyer would love to have a crack at you. He thinks people like you are a disgrace to the profession.

You are a liar and a fraud, Jack. Go ahead and sue me, I dare you.

Re: NIMF's David Walsh Interviewed in Game Informer

How does this type of attitude help the situation?  Are you going to triple dog dare him next?

Re: NIMF's David Walsh Interviewed in Game Informer

Seriously Jack, does it physically hurt you when you lie to yourself like that? You have zero credibility left. Zero. How'd that suit against MSNBC go when that reporter dissed you, eh? How'd that lawsuit against kincyr (gp blogger) go after GamePolitics refused to remove a post that offended you? How'd all the lawsuits against GP go? How is your life holding together? I mean, your career is looking dead, you have seemingly abandoned your family to dick around on a website harrassing people...I don't understand why you haven't fallen apart...Does your hate keep you alive?

And where is my letter back to Walsh, Dennis, proving he lied, Dennis?  You have it, and yet all you print here is Walsh's letter written by Kaplan.  You are an embarassment to your race, Dennis, the human race.

Re: You're one to talk....

You're the embarrassment to the human race, a skidmark on the underwear of life, if you will.

Re: NIMF's David Walsh Interviewed in Game Informer

From Jack Thompson to Dr. David Walsh via above link, 1st sentence, 11th paragraph:

Liberals, like you, love to label things and then think that the labeling has accomplished something.

Right, Jack, just like when you label GTA a "murder simulator", you really are not accomplishing anything.

*BURN!!!!*

Re: NIMF's David Walsh Interviewed in Game Informer

That doesn't appear to be proof that Walsh lied (unless you're Jack).  Looks more like Jack is badgering and browbeating Walsh into coercing him into saying he lied.

Re: NIMF's David Walsh Interviewed in Game Informer

It's been said before, but I'll say it again: Pot + Kettle = Black

As a (soon-to-be-ex) lawyer, you already represent the lowest form of human life that there is.  Your massacre-chasing tactics lower you even further.  And your arrgoance, self-rightousness, intimidation and harrassment and poor civil conduct take you even further down.

It's gotten to the point that even your fellow lawyers don't want anything to do with you and consider you a laughingstock and an embarassment to their profession.  That's whay they want to disbar you and if you ask me, it's long overdue.  So I'd say it's you who's deserves to be an emabarssment to the human race.  Dennis on the other hand is a beacon of journalistic integrity.

Re: NIMF's David Walsh Interviewed in Game Informer

I'm a liar, Dennis?  Where is the rebuff of Walsy by the PTA in this story?  Where is the reportage that Walsh did not tell the truth when he said I was claiming he endorsed me and I asked him for one example of that and he couldn't come up with it?  Where is the reportage, Dennis, about Walsh's Best Buy funding stream?  Where is it, Dennis?????????????

I'm in Utah with normal Americans.  You're in Philadelphia with game addict perverts.  I'll take Utah. 

 

Re: Grow up and get a life, Jack.

You're not with  "normal Americans", Jacky Boy, you're with self-righteous assclowns.

I'd rather stay in Louisiana than go to a place where polygamy is treated like the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.

Re: NIMF's David Walsh Interviewed in Game Informer

Jack you are a liar.  Your, supposed, faith is pretty critical of that isn't it?

 

Walsh made any such claims about you saying he endorced you.  The letter pretty clearly states that neither of you had any formal relationship.  Perhaps for a refresher you need to see his letter again:

 

""Dear Mr. Thompson,

I founded the National Institute on Media and the Family ten years ago to engage in research and education about the effects of media on children's health and development. Our original premise that "media are powerful" has been validated scientifically and socially many times over. Our work has been cited by organizations around the world and our credibility has been well established.

One of the areas of greatest concern is the issue of violent media's effect on children. I know that you share that common concern and I am well aware that you have frequently cited me and our organization as a source of scientific information. However, over the past few months, I and members of my board have a growing concern that your use of our name, without our permission, has had a negative influence as we try to educate the public on this important issue.

Your commentary has included extreme hyperbole and your tactics have included personally attacking individuals for whom I have a great deal of respect. I believe that respect is essential in all our dealings, including respect for those with whom we disagree. Some of the people that you have publicly criticized are not only people of integrity, but are people who have worked to improve the lives of children.

Even though we have no formal relationship your use of my name and your inclusion of my name in correspondence have created the impression that we condone these tactics. We do not. The result is that our position and reputation as a research based, non-partisan, solution-focused organization has been jeopardized. Consequently, I ask that you cease using the Institute's or my name in any way that would give the impression that we support your efforts. I also ask that you remove the link to our website that appears on your site.

Sincerely,

David Walsh, PH.D.""

 

Now no claims of endorsement were made were they?  All he wanted you to do is not mention his name, something you cannot (reasonably) attempt to lie about doing.  Of course when have you been reasonable?

Re: NIMF's David Walsh Interviewed in Game Informer

You're in Utah with Mormons, a particularly scary brand of religious zealot. They should suit you nicely.

Game addict perverts? We're the perverted ones? At least we have the (un) common humanity to accept all people as humans, unlike you, if you are the God-fearing fundamentalist you claim and seem to be.

For example;

Homosexuals: Leviticus 20:13

"If a man also lie with mankind, as he leith with a woman, both of them have commited an abomination; they surely shall be put to death, their blood shall be opon them."

Rowdy Kids: Deuteronomy 21:18-21

"And they shall say unto the elders of his city, "This our son is stubborn and rebellious. He will not obey our voice; he is a glutton and a drunkard."

"And all the men in the city shall stone him with stones, that he die, so shalt thou put evil away from among you."

Perhaps the latter passage is the reason why you have been on this crusade against creative freedom. You believe that it is your Biblical duty to punish rowdy children (despite the fact that, according to ESA statistics, the average age of an American gamer is 33, and less than a third of gamers (28.2%, to be exact) are under 18. The case may be slightly different in Australia, my country, but, the figures are nearly the same.). 

Also, your key argument (that violent video games encourage real world violence in teens) is flawed to the core. If what you were saying was true, wouldn't the American crime rate be going up, instead of down? If you're going to mention the Nassau Six, don't bother. They had consumed alcohol, and were at a park at 11:30 pm on a Tuesday. Where were the parents? If the parents of those six little brats had have been responsible and made sure their children weren't out at night (on a school night, with alcohol), the whole thing wouldn't have happened. They were a bunch of rowdy teenagers who got a bit pissed and decided to rob some people. Teenagers have been rebelling against soceity ever since soceity existed. If you, or the Nassau police department, seriously believe that these teenagers would not have done this were it not for the game, then I shake my head in shame and wonder why. 

I am 16, and have been playing violent video games for almost 6 years. I have not hurt a fly in my life, Mr.Thompson, but I have been bullied a lot. These bullies don't play video games (because they're 'nerdy'), they play sport. All my gamer friends are in exactly the same scenario as me, bullied by aggressive, violent sport players. Therefore, logically, if we are going to make generalisations, as you love to do, it is far more plausible for sport to make kids violent, rather than games. 

I have so many other points to make, but this comment is long enough. And, having played GTA, I do agree that kids shouldn't be playing it. It is an adult game for exactly that reason.

Jack, please reply to this, i sincerely want to hear your thoughts on your destroyed arguments.

Re: NIMF's David Walsh Interviewed in Game Informer

Jack Thompson, reply to something? Please, he won't. EVER. I've tried. I once e-mailed him something about the same length as what you gave here, and i got one sentence in return. One. Something along the lines of 'I don't care what a heathen like you has to say.' OK, maybe not verbatim to that, but close to it. That was it. He doesn't read anything people send him.

To those of you reading this, hear me out: Just don't e-mail Jack Thompson. Period. It doesn't matter how civil you present yourself, he still adds it to the 'potential death threats from gamer perverts' circural file.

Re: NIMF's David Walsh Interviewed in Game Informer

Mr. Thompson, i'll tell you one last time. LEARN TO READ ENGLISH.

Re: NIMF's David Walsh Interviewed in Game Informer

The story is about the Game Informer interview, not a global perspective on the life & times of David Walsh.

Your name came up in that interview and GP was a major part of that story when it broke originally, so it got a mention in our coverage. The PTA issue, the Best Buy issue were NOT part of what we were reporting on, which you fully realize. You're just in full lash-out mode, as usual.

Am I supposed to go back and link every story I've ever written about NIMF & Walsh? Uh, no. We covered the PTA's dispute with Walsh, it's a matter of record. It's available online.

You're the one who's made the allegations regarding NIMF & Best Buy, and we've reported that in the past as well. They have denied it.

I'm sure that 99.99% of the people in Utah are "normal" ...just as are 99.99% of the peeps in Philly.

Now, let me ask you... Where are these upstanding citizens who nominated you and selected you? Why won't they say why? By selecting you, are they saying that the Florida Bar, FL Supreme Court, US Disrict Court SDF and Judge Moore in Alabama are all full of it? Where are those answers????  Where????

Re: NIMF's David Walsh Interviewed in Game Informer

I was nominated because they read my book.  The bases for honoree selection are at the America's Freedom Festival site.  Apparently you don't know how to google.  Jack Thompson
