Media Effect on Politics

In the interest of dramatic intensity, crime dramas have created ever more terrifying and cruel villains. There is a political side effect. When the man on the street is asked Should we have a zero tolerance death penalty for all drug dealers? what pops to mind? — a welfare mom selling marijuana on the side to people suffering from nausea in her apartment building or a child-raping, puppy-torturing, grandma-eating ghoul from the mind of Jerry Bruckheimer?
