The national News Media uses these stories about the sexual abuse of children as a club to bash conservative institutions in our society like the Catholic Church and the Boy Scouts.
However, it completely ignores the widespread and rampant sexual abuse of children that occurs in liberal, working-class institutions like America’s public schools, or the hundreds of thousands of cases of the sexual trafficking of children that occurs in America’s cities or stories about the sexual abuse of women that occurs in the workplace or in our prison system (or with our allies in the world):
The national News Media doesn’t present and isn’t interested in presenting the full picture regarding the extent of sexual violence that occurs in our society.
The national News Media is only interested in bashing groups like the Catholic Church and the Boy Scouts, while the sexual abuse in other societal institutions, like America’s public schools and prisons and other religious groups is basically ignored.
Example what I am talking about; there was hardly any news coverage of this important story about Chrysler, the UAW, and sexual abuse of female workers at Chrysler’s Toledo Jeep Plant:
"The high volume of charges has prompted the Ohio Civil Rights Commission to launch a broad investigation into the possibility of an abusive environment at the Jeep complex, the Free Press has learned.
In the past four years, nine federal lawsuits have been filed in Toledo against Chrysler regarding sexual harassment at the Jeep plant. Seventy-three charges of civil rights violations have been filed with the Ohio Civil Rights Commission, with more than 40 coming within the past 18 months, records show.
The 45 civil rights complaints in the last 18 months is more than five times the number of charges leveled against General Motors Corp.'s comparably sized operations in and around Toledo."
But because the story involves Chrysler Corporation, which spends hundreds of millions of $$$ in advertising dollars for TV commercials, newspaper, magazine, and online advertising, the national News Media ignores the news story.
It’s been eight years since the Boston Diocese sex scandal of 2002; it seems like the only other news stories the National News Media has focused on concerning the sexual abuse of children are stories that involve attractive female public school teachers and teenage boys, because those stories attract public attention and increase TV ratings and newspaper sales.
Yes, they should report the bad stuff going on in the Catholic Church, but, for me, in order for me to believe that the national News Media is seriously concerned the problem of the sexual abuse of children in our society, the News Media would also have to focus on the American public school system, and the child sex trafficking trade.
During the past eight years, they have focused their spotlight exclusively on the Catholic Church.
I have noticed for about the last decade, around the beginning of Lent and through Easter, the News Media publishes news articles or broadcasts TV programs that challenge the faith of Christians.
The stories about the 2002 Catholic Church sex scandal in Boston were published about the same time; a few years back, they showed a documentary about the ‘Jesus Tomb’, which was said to contain the remains of Jesus, Joseph, and Mary, and Jesus’s other siblings.
It doesn’t suprise me that these news stories about sexual abuse and the Catholic Church are being published now during Lent.
I will just state what is now obvious: the secular News Media wants Pope Benedict XVI out and to resign; they also introduce Modernism into the Catholic Church (e.g., end of celibacy; the embracing of homosexuality; female priests, etc.).
First they called the Pope a Nazi (I remember Aaron Brown on his CNN show stating Pope Benedict was an ardent soldier of the Third Reich the day after Pope Benedict was elected Pope five years ago); this Milwaukee case seems to be just one of many that Cardinal Ratzinger handled as Prefect for the Doctrine of the Congregation of the Faith.
I would not be surprised at all by the end of next week that more sexual abuse cases that Cardinal Ratizinger handled will make it to the frontpage headlines on TV and online, and the News Media will be demanding his resignation.
Because, wasn’t that, in the end, is what this is really all about?
I mean, if the national News Media is really concerned with protecting all of our children from sexual abuse and bringing this problem to the American public’s attention, why are all these other important news stories about sexual abuse involving children are ignored?
Usually they are only handled by the local media and they are not front page stories and often photos of the perpetrators are not published.
