Videos or Articles About Adult Opinions of Teenagers

I'm going to have my students create a mixed-media project that shows what it's like to be a teenager now, and I'd like to start the project with some videos or articles that show the stereotypical way that adults view teenagers. The more offensive and stereotype-laden the better, and bonus points for fear-mongering oh-noes-the-death-of-civilisation-at-the-hands-of-teens.

This will be the lead-in to the project. The "Why This Is Important" part to give them an idea of what people think about teens and inspire them to do better.
Tips on what to include or how to execute the project part are also appreciated.
Other details that may prove relevant (or not):
--The big-picture dream is that we'll use this to create a resource for teachers to better understand the lives of their students, and encourage them to assign it and upload their own projects to the site.
--I teach English 9 at a small arts-driven high school in the SF Bay Area.
--The access to technology is limited to a few computer labs, student devices, my two Mac laptops and my person iPad and iPhone.
--My pedagogy is flipped learning mixed with student-centred project-based-learning. There's a link to my blog and twitter in my profile if that's helpful.
