CBS Sunday Morning: TV crime dramas popular around the world

Release Date: May 16, 2010

David Schmid, professor of English, was interviewed on the CBS Sunday Morning for a story about the popularity of television crime shows and how that reflects on America post-9/11. Based on U.S. crime shows, "from the perspective of people in other countries, America is an extremely violent culture," which reinforces what they already think of the U.S., he said.
