Great. I think founder of google news should know that moderation is required to remove propoganda based news in politics category especially.
I hope he is taking feedbacks :)

Wow, this could be a great use of tablets and pre school and K-3.   After third grade, kids want computers

Children watch an average of 3 hours of TV per day...not a good situation

Might have something to do with all those crinkly  packages which are passed mindlessly to the child or left in the larder to which the child stuffs the contents of into its face somewhat innocently! :)

Nepal begins coming to terms with the death and devastation left by earthquakes and aftershocks. More than 3,400 people have died in Nepal alone.

Downright SHOCKING. There is a time in life for everything and not sure I think that the 60s is a time to have more children

Reading the article it seems, that she is somekind of an media-attention junkie. BTW: "Bild" ("News"-paper) and "RTL" (Trash-TV) are both far away from being serious media.

What amazing statistics...33% of kids under one have used a smart phone or tablet.  Can we do something to help kids that age learn important values and skills?

my children started using tablets and electronic devices when they were already a few months older than one. They learned the alphabet , numbers, songs, how to  use the device and some other stuff, like animals. 
They learned to read with books, though. There is a lot of distraction (like they favourite videos, etc.) on tablets.... so, a mixture of digital and analogue probably yealds the best results.
