Okay heres one problem im having with their "TEST." They are in a mall and the ds picks up ANY wifi signal, meanign it can use a wifi signal which essentially extends it length of transmission. Plus: your kid actually has to be in pictochat to recieve messages in the first place.

My opinion: fox can blow itself. Their just looking for an excuse to get a story out of almost nothing, by freaking people out. The parents in the video are even dumber than fox too.

Who uses Pictochat in the middle of the highway, anyway? Hell, who uses Pictochat AT ALL?!

The bigger issue is here is people thinking that anything on/from Fox is remotely true and not designed to make you afraid of terrorists or something.

FOX is extremely biased. They think that you should be scared out of your skull of everything and everyone so that you'll vote for the Dubbya'. Check out Geraldo at Large. All he does is whine, report about rape, lies, and murder, and rant about how lame the Democrats are.

Waitaminute. Did that report say anything kid ACTUALLY being talked to by a child molester on his/her DS?

So no crime took place at all, and FOX just simply brought up the idea.

Smooth move FOX, your the ones who took child molesting to the next level.

The media is great for giving bad ideas to the wrong people.

Fox News. Making you safer by proving how it easy it is for ax murders to break into your house.

Exactly. Now the Nintendo fanboys who secretly molest children (FOX's great fear) will attack.

True. I was sorely disappointed when I tried to trade items online in Portrait of Ruin. Pictochat is nigh-unusable in my neck of the woods.

The funniest is that Oreilly hack. Not sure if he's on that station or CNN (close enough).

Seriously though, I guess by Fox logic, talking, no, eye contact is dangerous. "A stranger can look at your child - does that make you feel safe? More at 11, if you can survive that long!"

Does anyone have that book "How the Media Passes off Crap as News," or something like that? I saw it on Amazon, and it looks awesome.

I saw that at the chapters near me once and I though about getting it but they were sellin it at close to 30$ and that was a bit steep for me to go for.

Fox sucks. I own a DS and I've never been molested.

Claiming Fox News has real journalists is like claiming Twilight has real vampires, it's just illogical.

:roll: Bloody media, how many people use picto-chat anyways, if your near enough to picto-chat someone you might as well put down your DS and go and talk to that person!!

Edit-Also that Mum is daft

Actually, the news post for that one is where I found the video.

Oh, Penny Arcade, is there anything you CAN'T do?
