Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace sparred with President Obama's senior advisor David Plouffe on why the president doesn’t“challenge his friends in Hollywood, supporters in Hollywood, 'clean up your act and knock it off"?
Plouffe responded that Obama had spoken about it throughout his presidency. According to Plouffe, it "starts with parents" taking responsibility for their children. Plouffe also attempted to note that the study commissioned by the president on violent media "is really important" because "scientific background" helps explain the causation between video games and gun violence.
It’s not just him; many question his silence when it comes to violence in Hollywood movies:
Obama bravely requests his Hollywood supporters to stop glorifying gun violence in their movies, tv shows, and music #ThingsThatDidntHappen

I'm confused, I thought Obama was going to take an above-it-all approach. Why did Hollywood get a total pass today? WHAT ABOUT THE CHILDREN!— John Nolte(@NolteNC) January 16, 2013
