Journalist Katie Couric has reached out to gamers upset over her recent hour-long report on violent and addicting games.
Writing on Twitter today, Couric encouraged her followers to tweet messages that speak to the positive side of violent games.
"Passionate gamers upset [with conversation about] whether violent video games can contribute to [violent] behavior. Tweet the positive side of violent [violent] games? Thanx!," she wrote.
Couric followed that tweet up with another stating that she would like to use the comments for an upcoming show. She did not give any additional information about this program.
On Monday, Couric aired a special report on her show, Katie, called "Are Video Games Ruining Your Life?" It included testimony from Daniel Petric, who cited video games as being a "catalyst" for shooting and killing his mother on October 20, 2007, as well as medical experts.
