Abuse Not Worthy of News Coverage
When sexual abuse in the Catholic church was uncovered, the national mainstream media was all over the story, as it should have been. But when it’s a public school system that is involved in the same thing — including sending known offenders back in to work with kids, and trying to minimized the issue — their silence betrays their bias. Then, there was outrage and daily reports on the evening news. Now, local reporting but not much else.
Dave Pierre of NewsBusters chronicles the issue here (back in May) and here (last week). The national media ignores a government program but wallops Christians over the same issue. Yeah, no bias there, right?
