Violence and the media

I really appreciated this article which justifiably criticises the persistently abominable way in which violence and abuse (particularly against women and children) is portrayed in the media.  The abuse of vulnerable people should never EVER be an opportunity for media clickbait and titillation.  Until the media and our society takes this issue seriously, we are fighting a losing battle against exploitation and violence, and even the victims will continue to blame themselves and justify the actions of perpetrators.  http://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/lifestyle/news-and-views/opinion/10-headlines-about-male-violence-that-needed-to-be-fixed-in-2016-20161211-gt8rve.html
