NewsView: Holding Hollywood Accountable Welcome to Holding Hollywood Accountable This Internet site exists to rally support for voluntary media and entertainment industry accountability in the wake of school violence and other disturbing social trends. Not only does television lead to desensitization toward violence, but when used as an "electronic babysitter" markedly decreases attention spans—a precursor to learning difficulty and delay in early childhood education. Moreover, the "boob tube" is a heavy contributor to America's "couch potato" epidemic, which imperils the health of young and old alike. Diabetes alone is now projected to strike one out of every three individuals within their lifetimes. Finally, even as bloggers' cries of "media bias" and "conspiracy" propagate widespread media distrust, the public's preference for televised news threatens to topple America's in-depth, broad-based and investigative print counterpart—the steadily declining daily newspaper.
