Videogames: Violence, the Law and California's Economy California's law to fine retailers of excessively violent video games was put on hold by a federal judge before rules or regulations had been established. The state's software entertainment makers, which comprise 41 percent of a $20 billion national industry, took it all the way to the US Supreme Court. This week, it ruled that the law infringed on the First Amendment, and that nobody really knows the impact of virtual violence.
Getting answers on phone taps, Russia and leaking The Directors of the FBI and the NSA testified on Capitol Hill today there's no evidence for President Trump's claim he was wire-tapped by former President Obama.
