Modern Warfare 2 featured on FOX & Friends this morning


FOX News had a discussion this morning regarding Modern Warfare 2, and true to form, only discussed the segment of the game where you play as a terrorist.

Special guests brought in to chat about it  were Jon Christensen of Slash Gamer and Jim Steyer, CEO of Common Sense Media.

Basically there was a back and form between Jon and Jim regarding the game, and in the stations constant effort to bring "fair and balanced reporting" the FOX hosts completely ignored the fact that it was not intended for players under 17, and quipped:

"You bring a violent game into a house with an 8 year old, nothing to stop that kid from playing it and becoming a terrorist...on a video game."

We guess there's tons of eight year old children out who would be more interested in this game, than say LEGO Batman or Webkinz. At least in FOX News land.

The full thing is over on Kotaku.
