Topic: Before you can develop your topic, you need to examine other views on the
subject. Please read these articles, and include quotes from them, as well as “Aggression: the Impact of Media Violence” in your response
When you quote the articles, you need only include attributions
(Title, author, source) rather than formal citations
since we are all using the same articles
