CBS Turns to China for Advice on Raising Children; No Mention of Forced Abortions


[See NewsBusters for more.] This week, CBS This Morning has explored motherhood around the world, gushing about how other countries do things better than the United States. On Tuesday, the show touted all the free stuff Finland gives out, ignoring the country’s high taxes. On Thursday, the CBS journalists cheered China’s handling of raising children. At no time did reporter Ben Tracy mention the country’s authoritarian government or the millions of forced abortions as a result of its one child policy. Regarding the intergenerational living that’s very popular in China, Tracy promoted, “Today, grandparents share almost half of childcare duties with mothers of two and three-year-olds. It's a big part of why China has one of the highest rates of women in the work force in the world.”
