Sometimes, the works are blamed before any evidence has come out, which is swept under the rug when it's shown that the perpetrators didn't bother with the work in question.

question. Also, some people ([[MoralGuardians often the media or religious groups]]) will blame any popular game for violent events, or blame any game that has some small connection to the subject matter (e.g. Blaming VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII for a shooting)

** This is the study on how real life tactics and common sense in video games can be translated in real life. The man behind it, Lieutenant Colonel Dave Grossman, taught killing to Green Berets, so one would think he would know his stuff. It was a big enough concern to be raised in the making of Rainbow Six, whether the games are likely to teach terrorists anything. Army tactical manuals are still freely available on the Army web site, of course.

* In ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken'' cousin Black Sheep stops two kids writing grafitti on a wall, which makes one of the mutter that they are bad because of too many cartoons. The Mexican GagDub went a step forward and had the kid claim it was because they watch too much ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' and ''Anime/SaintSeiya''.

* Shortly after [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/10513994 Raoul Moat]] went on a killing spree after murdering his ex-girlfriend's lover as well as injuring her, the ''[[BritishNewspapers Daily Star]]'' ran an article claiming that the Scotland-based Rockstar North was planning on making him the star of the next ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'' game, even [[KickTheDog bothering a grieving victim for a quote]]. In the backlash that followed, the journalist in question began criticising gamers for calling him out on his bull (trying to frame it as him being criticised for reporting it, rather than for outright lying in his blog). Luckily, in this case, sanity prevailed, and the ''Daily Star'' was [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-tyne-11467287 successfully sued for libel]].

** Strangely, Hank voiced a very different opinion in an earlier episode, during his usual complaints about Bobby's unmanly tendencies.
--->'''Hank:''' The boy's got no fight in him, I don't get it. He spends five hours a day playing violent video games. What's the point if they don't have any effect on him?

* Creator/{{Socrates}} is a deconstruction of this. During his life he was known as a rather annoying brat that asked random people on the streets questions such as "What is justice?" and "What is good?". He did also make a school where people could study retoric for free, out of belief that not making it free would be immoral. One of his students however turned out to be Alkibiades who, after having studied by Socrates and becoming a beloved political leader, restarted the war against Sparta and, later in his life, sided with the Spartans, where he uncovered all the military plans that Athens was making, which led to the Athenians inevitable losing of the war. This all was followed by a regime led by thirty tyrants that, due to fierce backlash of very charismatic Athenian politicians, only lasted for about a year. Twelve years later, due to everyone except his devoted fans being tired of him, he was sent to court for corrupting the youth of Athens, in the hope that he would leave Athens for good. He however, refused defending himself and continued proposing worse and worse punishments because he broke the Athenian law and was in the end sentenced to death. Despite his fans offering him plans and strategies to leave Athens during his week in prison, which would have worked if for no other reason than because it is what the prosecutors wanted, he took his death and drank the poison that was given to him by the executioner. He died at age 81, which is quite old by ancient Greek standards.
