Objectivity 4.0 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

USA Today published an article that argued against the public opinion on pedophilia. The article, now taken down, was originally titled What the Public Keeps Getting Wrong About Pedophilia. Throughout the article, the author cites researchers who study pedophilia and who argue the attraction to minors is “misunderstood” as being synonymous with child sexual abuse. Critics slammed USA Today for publishing the article with many claiming they are attempting to normalize pedophilia.
