03 May Missing from the Conversation: How Children and Families Are Left Out of Elite Discourse—An Analysis of Campaign 2012
From The Center for the Next Generation
Posted on The Center for the Next Generation’s blog:
“We looked at all the media coverage of children and families issues from June to July and found that kids were definitely not on the press’ agenda. The fiscal cliff, Social Security, and Medicare came up in news stories much more often, and although these all bear very heavily on the next generation, kids didn’t enter into these discussions. Even Ann Romney’s horse garnered more media attention than kids, getting nine times the coverage. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ divorce got over 200 times as much coverage. Sadly unsurprising.”
