I found this article interesting, primarily because the point of anti-religious programming is for the sole purpose of turning people against said religion. No, I do not believe that such programming turns ordinary people into mass-murderers, but I do believe that such programming has emotional and psychological affects on uninformed people.

 

This programming clearly attacks the emotions and gets people witch-hunt mentality ramped up, so there is a correlation, though I don't believe we can make a casual link between hate shows and violence.

Ignorance plays a key role.  Just because it's on TV, there may be a mentality that it must be true and some get sucked into it hook line and sinker.

 

Jehovah protected his people by teaching them.

Exo 23:2 You must not follow after the crowd to do evil, and you must not pervert justice by giving testimony to go along with the crowd.

 

The one showing favor to the lowly is lending to Jehovah
