Pearl on NBC’s Today Show

Michael Pearl and The Spanking Controversy were featured on NBC’s The Today Show this morning.

If anyone is unable to see the video for whatever reason, this article is pretty much a transcript of the show.

Also see this article from NBC which contains most of the story as well as the video clip.

The Los Angeles Times also reports on this story.

    It bothers me that what the Pearls teach is lumped in with “spanking” as if this is a “to spank or not to spank” controversy. In actuality, people who oppose or support spanking have SERIOUS concerns about what Michael Pearl teaches. It goes far beyond spanking, to the whole paradigm of “win at all costs”. . . I think that if the MSM focuses on the “spanking” aspect of it, then people will judge it based on that alone, rather than the deeply flawed and abusive teachings he actually promotes.

      I agree. They really confuse the issue, focusing on starting controversy where there is none because they get better ratings. Well, that and because Pearl confuses them by making it about spanking. Then they jump on that opportunity to get the ratings. Anyone listening to him without doing tons of study will get confused.
