Ben Hirsch of Survivors for Justice writes in The Jewish Week [emphasis added]:

…Orthodox victims agonize over the lack of attention given this  problem by mainstream media and government, particularly compared to the  Catholic abuse scandal and, now, the situation at Penn State. While  Jewish newspapers such as The Jewish Week, and blogs, have done hundreds  of stories on this issue, the same cannot be said for the mainstream  media. In five years The New York Times has published two stories;  Orthodox Jewish children are being raped in the paper’s backyard but it  appears that this is news not fit to print.
