  • Jenny Day, a journalist for KYMA News in Yuma County Arizona reported fake news as real news. This journalist, wrote a story about Sex Offenders with the headline:

Released to Reoffend: News 11 investigates the sex offender next door: 

Jenny Day's entire "news story" is built around a grossly incorrect statistic that 99% of registered sex offenders re-offend. The actual government statistics for the recidivism rate of sex offenders correctly shows recidivism to be around 5% with other government based studies (DOC) putting the number a little higher, (or lower). The FACT is sex offenders have the lowest rate of recidivism ~ except those convicted of murder. You can see a great article here and  studies here:

This petition is calling on Jenny Day to either do a new story based on the overwhelming, indisputable evidence that sex offenders have a low recidivism rate, or to resign. 

Clearly this was a "scare factor" report. We want you to fix it. You did NOT report fact.
