Channel Seven’s Sunrise spoke with Media Studies Professor Karen Brooks this morning about the Wikipedia sex topic uproar. There wasn’t any web bashing or family frothing though as one comes to expect from morning tele. Brooks instead spoke about the importance of supervising children’s Internet use and the need for clear communication between parents and children. Like me, I don’t think Mel was expecting such a reasoned approach.
My only complaint is that Brooks refers to the content as pornographic at the end of the interview. The images and footage aren’t on there to arouse, they are there to educate and inform. Explicit they may well be, but they are not pornographic.
