Maybe The Media Didn’t Get This Right.

By now, most of us have heard about the lawsuit filed by a woman in the Northeastern U.S. against a young relative who accidentally broke her wrist a few years ago.

Jennifer Connell asked for $127,000 in damages, and all hell broke loose when the news media got wind of it.  Media outlets have been reporting this story as a hateful freak show, and Ms. Connell is being portrayed as a monster.

In fairness, please consider clicking the link below for an article in The Guardian.  That paper’s reporter thought to ask questions which some other so-called journalists missed.
