"Both the PBS and the CPB ombudsmen have stated that Breaking the Silence: Children's Stories lacked any balance and ignored the existence of any alternative views. The CPB ombudsman called for Breaking the Silence to be reviewed for accuracy, fairness, and balance. Please conduct such a review and recommend changes to guarantee that future programs comply with the US Congressional mandate to assure 'strict adherence to objectivity and balance in all programs or series of programs of a controversial nature.'"
I would imagine so in that it was telling the story from the female perspective. Actually though to be tilted the documen tary would have had to claim to be about violnce against men also. It did not do that, therefore, no deception, no tilting. Besides even if it was a joint documentary it would still have been tilted because the fact - and it is in cement - is that mans violence far exceeds womans.
And your point is what? Should a documentary about pedophiles present the pedophiles view? Or how about a rapists views? Maybe a killers views. What would they say? Something like yup, I did rape, kill, what ever but don't you know, talk about it, ok? It makes us pedophiles look bad.
