Amazing how these stories always seem to pop up in the foreign newspapers...
Although the 'original' reporting on this was published by CNN this past Tuesday,
CNN's article title makes no reference to how extremely young this child is and the title as well as the body of the article is, as expected, extremely supportive and of course doesn't highlight the hot-button issues such as the child's extremly young age or the perverted, mentally ill "parents". I don't watch "network television" and so I don't know if this ever hit the "evening news" but I'm guessing that in most cases it probably did not, and if it did it was just another very short glowing, fawning puff-piece that didn't mention or dwell on the sorts of things that normal people care about.
As a result, this whole matter probably slipped under the radar for most people because they may have assumed that this was just another of the zillions of pro-pervert articles we've come to expect from CNN and their ilk and didn't take the time to read deep into the article and put the pieces together properly afterwards.
Even though I'm a proud American I post a lot of articles from the UK press here at Free Republic because I've found that they will frequently add information to American stories that aren't being covered properly by the American press, or they'll publish articles on American news events that the American media is choosing to ignore entirely.
In addition, I've found that it's important to keep abreast of news in the UK because they, unfortunately, are quite a bit further along the path of Socialism than we are in the USA and they serve as a 'canary in the coal mine' of Socialism. Looking at Governmental policy and law in the UK can quite frequently serve as an early warning to us here in the USA of what can happen along the road when the Left gets their way.
