Tom Cruise screen shot (Mission Impossible)A media watchdog is calling out Hollywood for its hypocritical reaction to gun violence.  

Tim Winter, head of the Parents Television Council, says while Hollywood elites demand more gun control laws, the entertainment industry features gun violence in its productions then markets the result to children.

The amount of gun violence on TV is sobering, he says, and it's also a problem in films, too.

"There has been research noted," says Winter, "that motion pictures rated PG-13 have more gun violence (and) deaths than even R-rated movies."

The TV shows and films are being marketed to children in their early teens, and some even younger, even though the images are "toxic" to their young minds while Hollywood ignores its role, says Winter.

Winter tells OneNewsNow he is glad that the White House seems to have taken notice about discrepancies in the ratings, and he also notes that it appears Congress and the Federal Communications Commission are more concerned as well.
