Margaret Hodge and journalismitus

I blogged a couple of days ago on the less that positive article from the Guardian covering Margaret Hodges Speech and suggested that it may have been some less than helpful journalism. Turns out that this is the case, Howard Williamson in YPN has written about this and provided the link to the full speech which is actually great! I hope that it translates into some real results!
I wish quality newspapers would be a bit more balanced in their attitude to teenagers! A report that all the Newspapers covered this week revealed that a shocking 25% of teenagers had comitted crime! I’m not condoning that but it would be interesting to know what precentage of adults had also comitted a crime such as: Cheating on their Tax, Using a mobile phone when driving, Speeding, Failing to pay for something? Just a thought!
