This always makes me think of an episode of South Park; where after hearing on the news how most child abductors are the parents of the child, the parents of South Park banish their kids into the world so the parents don't know where they are and thus can't abduct them.

As for Ryan's comment, I think you hit the nail on the head. The bottom line for news companies, is unfortunately the bottom line. Reporting the news is simply a byproduct of what they really want you to consume, the advertising. No one cares if little Sally did her home work on time, but stick her in a tinfoil balloon and suddenly the whole planet is watching, and that spells much advertising revenue.

Also a big thumbs up for Free Range Kids, my fiancée and I had talked extensively about raising kids (gulp!) and that site is great.
