Opening[edit]

Shouldn't the litigation be explained before leading out: "Interviews by children..." Also, are the children doing the interviews or are being interviewed? If it is the latter I would say "Interviews of children" --SVTCobra 14:41, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for looking at this. "of" children -- yes. I did the lead this way because the litigation has been ongoing, not news itself, but apparently the interviews are only not coming to light (at least as far as media/world is concerned) due to AP story. Ok? Blum 15:56, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

Comments[edit]

  • If the children were supposed to be the focus of the article, it gets lost pretty quickly. There seems more stuff about the Iowa prison case than anything else.
  • See WN:NPOV the article also seems skewed against the programs. Perhaps the selection of sources has something to do with that.
  • I don't think the article is ready yet.

Thanks, that's fine and I appreciate the various feedback on it. I would welcome others to collaborate and develop this article properly. Blum 21:22, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

Major rewrite notes[edit]

I did a major rewrite and I renamed this article. I put it in Ready instead of publishing because of the reliance on a single source. I did a pretty thorough search but try as I might I could not get around the Courier-Journal source. It seems that it was picked up by AP and all other sources seem to either refer to AP or Courier-Journal. Maybe someone adept at finding court records can help. --SVTCobra 02:15, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

Essentially single-source[edit]

I want to stress, that although I did most of the work in presenting the article in its current form, it is still basically based on the Courier-Journal source. Sure some background and the Iowa case are from other sources. But I am still appealing for someone to find some corroborative independent sources, even court records could suffice. Or even sources that completely debunk this. (Note: I did not publish) --SVTCobra 03:27, 5 May 2007 (UTC)
