Medical researchers from Canada have announced in a study that the media may be responsible for the prevalence of traumatic brain injuries among hockey players. The occurrence of traumatic brain injuries can lead to future mental health problems such as memory issues, depression and other behavioral changes, and problems with thinking and perceiving sights and sounds. Researchers from Toronto's St. Michael's Hospital scanned newspaper articles about hockey games from Canadian and American newspapers over the past 25 years, and found that the media downplayed the significance of injuries, and reported injuries only when they affected star players. The researchers found overall trends that media coverage tends to normalize violence among hockey players and has not led players to change their behavior.
