Normative Studies
I am writing a little paragraph about Normative Studies, using Provenzo Video Kids as an example. To me that book is the video-game version of the media panics sweaping over the western continent all through last century. But where is the limit for normative? At which point does the expectations and political or religious conviction of the writer start dictating the reporting/research and turn information and enlightenment into preaching?

I hope I find out before I have to defend my definition of that line.
