Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Advocate Rates Sandusky Media Coverage a “C.”

In a Ms. Foundation funded study released today on the early media coverage of the Penn State child sexual abuse case, "Breaking News on child sexual abuse: Early coverage of Penn State," the Berkeley Media Studies Group found that the coverage not only missed an opportunity to focus on prevention, but on the potential solutions for preventing child sexual abuse before it ever occurs. We believe that all adults play a role in preventing child sexual abuse, and given this, we hope that you will not only revisit our initial post here regarding our thoughts on the case and how we can all become better educated about this issue, but that you will also consider contacting the Prevent Child Abuse America in your state here to see how you might support their prevention efforts as well.
