An extraordinary multi-platform series about the recession’s harmful effects on children
At a time when there was little coverage of the effects of the recession on average Americans, CBS News committed considerable resources in this division-wide effort that exposed the devastating impact of the economic meltdown on those most vulnerable: children. Using innovative storytelling techniques and reporters and producers from all of their news outlets, the CBS Reports series exposed a wide range of new problems for children including a spike in abuse cases in emergency rooms. Ranging from the morning news to the evening news, radio to Web, and in partnership with USA Today, this series gave children a voice at one of the most challenging times of their young lives.
