Oh but it will not be a totally negative result. Since it is a government sponsored study it will at least leave the door open to future studies so they can continue to get money from the government. If the government was interest in the "truth" of the matter there are a ton of independent studies that could even be used for their purposes. This is looking for political gains by jumping on the hate bandwagon. He not interested in the truth just getting reelected, and wasting money. As for the study there has been studies that showed that when there is a major sponsor, in this case the government, the people carrying out the study will bend and spin the results to the sponsor's views, plus the sponsor who holds the rights to the results will spin them.
A good example of this is the only study that "proved" the benefits anti-bacterial soap. It wasn't even a study to study the effects of antibacterial soap put a study to see the benefits of using soap period. But the sponsor Proctor and Gamble supplied their latest product anti-bacterial handsoap to the study. Plus the only test groups where smoothie vendors who used soap at their carts or smoothie vendors who didn't. The study came out that there were marginal benefits to using soap, but the mechanical processes of washing hands took off most of the bacteria. But Proctor and Gamble used it and see anti-bacteria soap has benefits.
There has been largly ignored studies that have come out about the benefits anti-bacteria soap, and most range from the soap is ineffective over regular soap to there are negetive results. (i.e. killing off benefical bacteria on the skin leaving you open to infections.)
So in conclusion economics almost always win again scientific integrety. Another example of this is why we seem to get a major discovery like the missing link only to have them retract the story days or weeks latter. There was one a year or two ago, but the most famous would be the _____ man (I keep mixing it with Java man which was Stop and Go's play on it) it was a missing link that showed without a doubt that man evolved from apes. It was the talk on all the radio stations during the mid 80's and weeks later there was a retraction printed usually on the last page, where the discovery was on the front page. That the scientists too quick to get their discovery out mistaken a mass grave of donkey bones that were killed and buried during WWII and didn't handle the carbon dating correctly or putting the bones together correctly. It usally the same with all such discoveries wanted to get more funding for their studies they will rush results resulting most of time in embarrassing and damaging results to the scientists involved.

I like this idea? A comprehensive negative result commissioned by people desperate for a positive would be great to use if this comes up again.
It likely won't come up as a negative though. They'll find some circumstancial link like "People playing games have more adrenaline in their blood" and jump to a conclusion from there.
Love and tolerate.
