Panorama WTF

I have just sat and watched panorama 'addicted to games' and im sorry but im furious between parents being interviewed claiming they are afraid for their children's health and the patronising presenter there was little to redeem this clearly biased programme.
One teenager interviewed claimed that he had lost his university place because of games and another said that world of war craft was terrible and he wouldn't inflict it on anyone else (he said this while playing). And far from looking at the possibility that maybe it was their own fault that they were 'addicted' to these games panorama went to Blizzard games with the air of someone who was expecting an apology for these “poor young men”.

I would also like to point out that they lost their university places because they haven't heard of something called prioritising. I mean personally I would like nothing to be playing games right now but I cant because I have work to do and because my parents instilled me with backbone so the next time these parents are crying that their kids wont put their 360s away maybe they should take a look at themselves instead of laying the blame at everyone else's door.
