According to one of the federal prosecutors handling the case, three doctors involved in Michigan’s female genital mutilation (FGM) ring may have performed the procedure on as many as one hundred young girls in the Detroit area in the past twelve years. Despite this alarming report published June 7 by Detroit News, the big three broadcast networks have remained silent. When the news of the practice first broke in April, ABC, CBS and NBC network shows said nothing. Now, as the scale of the crime amplifies, the silence is all the more deafening.
