Back to Next Generation

Missing from the Conversation



We looked at all the media coverage of children and families issues from June to July and found that kids were definitely not on the press’ agenda. The fiscal cliff, Social Security, and Medicare came up in news stories much more often, and although these all bear very heavily on the next generation, kids didn’t enter into these discussions. Even Ann Romney’s horse garnered more media attention than kids, getting nine times the coverage. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ divorce got over 200 times as much coverage. Sadly unsurprising.



But that’s why we launched Too Small to Fail, a movement to bring kids to the top of the national agenda in politics and media. Join us and start talking about what really matters: the next generation!
