    nagging feeling

    Yet the nagging feeling persists that in some way all the violent images have some negative impact.

    What does "nagging feeling" mean?

    The feeling of repeatedly critizing

    Re: nagging feeling

    It means that the disagreeable thought (or feeling) keeps coming back again and again.

    One is unable to discard it.

    (It's the feeling that does the nagging, it's not - as philadelphia thought - that the feeling is characterized by nagging. But philadelphia's understanding would work with some "verb-ing feeling" phrases - as in the song title 'You've lost that loving feeling'.
