How kids in England are smeared in the press, and what to do about it

One of the best sessions I attended at last weekend's Convention on Modern Liberty was the panel on children's rights, mostly because of the fantastic presentation from Samantha Dimmock from the Children's Rights Alliance for England, in which she delivered the findings in a new report called "Another Perspective: How Journalists Can Promote Children's Human Rights and Equality." This is a really meaty study on the systematic vilification of children in the English press, and the effect that this has on public opinion. It includes recommendations for journalists who cover children's issues, and is endorsed by the National Union of Journalists.
