Carolina in my mind

On his radio show yesterday, Rush Limbaugh mentioned a story that appeared in a North Carolina newspaper that included this little "tidbit" at the end of the article:

This year, 28 cases of sexual behavior between teachers and students have been
reported to the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, said Harry
Wilson, a lawyer for the state school board.
If not for Rush's show, I would not know that this was going on down in N.C. What I'm asking is why the mainstream media is not plastering this on the front pages of newspapers and cable news shows? Let me ask it another way: If, instead of schoolteachers, the article read that this year in North Carolina there were 28 cases of sexual behavior between Priests and minors entrusted to their care, would there be anything happening in the world that would keep that fact off of the front pages of newspapers or cable shows?
