I personally don't find the game all that fun, but I'd be interested in learning who the game was made for. When the creator submitted it, he selected certain criteria that would allow Newgrounds to put an appropriate rating on it. That's how it's done when you submit to Newgrounds. You select the indicators marked " violence," "explicit violence," "sexual content," and/or "explicit content." I don't remember if those are the exact terms used on the Newgrounds submission page or not, but anyone who has ever submitted to Newgrounds knows that you classify your submission with any of those indicators that apply.
Anyway, my point is, that the Newgrounds rating was something like "Mature: Excessive Violence." The "Mature" label, applied based on the criteria selected by the author, clearly means that it isn't for children. That much is obvious. When Fox news presented their report, they described the game this way, "It puts your child in the driver's seat to torture a make believe hanging person..." At the bottom of the screen, there was some text that read, "Let's kids torture human figures" The Fox report appeared to be misrepresenting the game as a submission deliberately made for kids. They had a commentator on talking about the effects it has on kids.
But it obviously wasn't for kids, because the label at the top of the screen said "Mature: Excessive Violence."
I don't know about you, but if I was the creator of that game, I'd sue the shit out of Fox News for slander, especially if I put a mature label on it everywhere I submitted it. Seriously, if the guy made this for a mature audience, he doesn't need Fox telling the world that he designed it for children. I believe that's called slander. Sue 'em.
