Teachable Moments in Media

Several weeks ago, we mentioned the latest Mel Gibson incident with ex-girlfriend and baby mama, Oksana Grigorieva. Following the incident and news coverage, Jackson Katz wrote a great article on teachable moments in the media. I love this way of thinking; the media is full of case studies and examples of dating violence, abuse, and root causes of intimate partner violence. Take a gander at Katz’s article here. Can you think of other teachable moments the media and popular culture has provided for us?
