the u.n. & the media

In the avalanche of bad news released by the United Nations this week about AIDS, poverty, and world hunger, a ray of light in this report highlighting the effectiveness breastfeeding has had in saving millions of children’s lives.

Almost as disturbing as the news in these reports is how they were buried in nearly all of our country’s major newspapers. A quick perusal of 20 of the U.S.’s dailies today yielded only 2 (Boston Globe and San Francisco Chronicle) where a link to any of these stories/reports even made the homepage.
