[See NewsBusters for more.] Using the brutal force of a communist dictatorship is, apparently, a pretty easy way to get things accomplished. It’s also something that CBS This Morning journalist Tony Dokoupil appears to be okay with. On Wednesday, the co-host cheered a new decree by communist China that bans minors under 18 from playing video games, except on weekends. NBC wondered if such a dictate “could it help your kids unplug?” Dokoupil marveled, “This is the whole government saying like, 'You cannot have video games on weekdays.' Amazing.” He praised, “What do they know that we don't?” In a surprise move, liberal co-host Gayle King played the role of heroic voice of reason: “It’s another reminder why it's good to live in the United States of America. Just saying.”
