I must be inside the bubble, because the idea of playing as the Taliban in Medal of Honor multiplayer didn't hit me as particularly controversial. Fox News noticed. Though it did treat the subject reasonably, the woman they interviewed doesn't.
This segment aired on Fox & Friends yesterday and, despite the network's poor rep with gamers thanks to past treatments, its handling does come in pretty fair and balanced. They didn't have to pick this subject, of course, and it may not be news to us, but I'll allow that it is to the general public.
