A TRIUMPH FOR INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISM
Oscars - Best Picture Spotlight. Phenomenal. A wonderful tribute to the campaigning team of investigative reporters at the Boston Globe who exposed the sexual abuse cover up in the Catholic Church and the dedicated ensemble cast of actors who brought the story to life on the big screen. Their commitment and dedication to the avowed mission to break the story went way beyond making movies.
An amazing juxtaposition with the powerful message of Vice President Joe Biden and the unforgettable condemnation of Lady Gaga in her song It Happened to Me - about sexual abuse on college campuses . Dare we hope that sexual abuse of children and minors will become unacceptable in our society - one more taboo shattered. It is NOT OK to ruin people's lives.
