A colleague showed me the cover of the Murdoch Post today.
The lead story was entitled "Perv Teachers".
It detailed three DOE employees - one para, one sub, and one teacher (I guess "Perv DOE Employees" doesn't have the same juice as "Perv Teachers") who were arrested for inappropriate and/or sexually explicit contact with students on the Internet.
3 DOE employees out of 80,000.
I did the math on that and came up with the percentage of how many DOE employees were caught as "pervs" - 0.0000375%.
Meanwhile last month a FOX 5 News reporter named Charles Leaf was arrested for child molestation.
The Murdoch Post did NOT run that story on the front cover.
In fact, they barely ran that story at all.
They gave it two paragraphs.
The Daily News, good news people that they are, did give it some coverage.
They covered the original arrest, then did some homework and found out that the Fox 5 reporter had actually been accused of molesting family members in the past.
So the Murdoch Post, which was hawking the 3 DOE "pervs" story today and followed it up with a "Bloomberg says teachers who 'friend' students on Facebook should be fired" story this evening couldn't be bothered with covering the Fox 5 reporter arrested for molesting a four-year old and alleged to have molested family members in the past, but they could give front page space to the DOE story.
Today I went over to the Fox 5 website and counted 27 on air personalities.
I did the math on that.
I discovered that 0.037% of Fox 5 on air personalities are "pervs".
In other words, there are more pervs at Fox 5 News than in the DOE, at least if you are counting the latest tabloid stories.
How come the Murdoch Post isn't running that story?
Oh, right - Murdoch owns Fox 5 too.
Or just hypocritical.
I wonder how many other "pervs" are over at Fox 5?
Didn't Ernie Anastos say something about "plucking" chickens or something?
