On Dec. 26, the local NBC station led its 6 o’clock news program with an inappropriate story. Using video and graphic detail, it revictimized an underage person who suffered intense sexual abuse. Do ratings count so much that a normally judicious news report would give salacious, demeaning and degrading details of the basest acts of human behavior? Had that victim been a child of an NBC employee, I doubt it would have broadcast the story so irresponsibly.
