Father charged with hitting son, 2
When does child abuse make the news? Child abuse happens every day, but why is the media jumping on this story? WCPO piles on with their story. WXIX had a lengthy report showing a lot of video of the man and his kid before the alleged incident, but not the incident itself. Why is this man being singled out? He may well be beating his kids, but there are far more people who are charged with the crime not getting their names in the news. I guess the video starved TV news wanted the story for the pictures, but the newspaper wanted to overflow of the beating caught on tape of the women beating her daughter in Indiana. The media put forth yet another example earning them the label of sensational bottom feeders.
