Ahead this week on the NCCPR Child Welfare Blog:

    More about Los Angeles this week, starting tomorrow (Monday) with an analysis of today's feeble attempt by the Los Angeles Times to add some context to its coverage. It's the Case of the Misleading Lead.

    Then on Tuesday: The Case of the Selective Sidebar: A look at some of the tragedies systematically left off the list that ran in the Times today.

    Still, it could be worse. When it comes to a grossly-misleading out-of-context war against family preservation, it's hard to top the editorial page at the Cleveland Plain Dealer - a newspaper which failed to learn from some brilliant reporting – by the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Actually, the Times could learn from that earlier Plain Dealer reporting, too. That story later this week.
