Reason Why It's Dumb: Misinformation about the sex content in Mass Effect
Where on earth does Fox News get its experts from? The woman in the video, Cooper Lawrence, not only admits to never having played the game in question, but she's willing to condemn the game in question, make up statistics on the spot, and spread gross misinformation based on her own narrow-minded views.
Thankfully Geoff Keighly does a pretty good job of dismissing her claims - with no help from the so-called impartial moderator - but the overall message remains clear; Mass Effect is a game about sodomizing aliens and objectifying women.
