After watching the CNN report, and seeing these children's data being shared, I wondered two things: 1) Did this "research" go through an Institutional Review Board that assures confidentiality and protection of human subjects; and 2) The showing of these children on TV and sharing their stories, who has consented? These children, their parents? THe airing of such work raises profound ethical questions not just about their answers, but the process of showing these kid's answers on mass television in front of 10 million viewers.
