Valentine's Day is after all a traditional holiday of love and romance, not of cheating and betrayal.</p> <br /> <p>Yet, Bloomberg Businessweek used the holiday to highlight AshleyMadison.com a website that helps married people (7 out of 10 on the site are men) have affairs. The company's motto is "Life is short. Have an affair."</p><p><a href="http://www.mrc.org/articles/bloomberg-businessweek-celebrates-valentines-day-adultery-cover-story" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Articles MRC Culture Family Life Adultery affair ashleymadison businessweek Cheating company cover fling helps holiday image Infidelity Magazine noelbiderman onlinedating running sex story website wife Tue, 15 Feb 2011 02:11:00 +0000 admin 2185 at http://www.mrc.org Down a Dark Abby http://www.mrc.org/special-reports/down-dark-abby <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> By</div> <a href="/author/cmi-staff">CMI Staff</a> </div> </div> </div> <p>The Dear Abby column, founded by Pauline Phillips in 1956 and now written by her daughter Jeanne, has a reputation for prescribing sensible advice for many of life's dilemmas, both big and small. Readers generally assume Abby can be trusted to provide traditional advice on all topics.</p> <br /> <p>However, a Culture and Media Institute analysis finds that Abby's advice on sexual issues frequently veers far away from traditional moral standards. Traditional morality teaches that sex should be limited to married, heterosexual couples, but Abby doesn't see it that way.</p><p><a href="http://www.mrc.org/special-reports/down-dark-abby" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Special Reports MRC Culture 2003 2007 abby abbys Abortion activity addressed adult adults advice advise ago asked baby behavior benefits Column Columns concerns culture daughter dear dressing education fact families family friend friends gay Gays girl giving health Homosexuality husband Infidelity information issues lesbians Letter letters life lover make Marriage married men moral morality mother organization organizations parenthood parents people pflag phillips planned Pregnancy pregnant premarital Prostitution protect reader readers received referred relationship response sex sexual sexually site stated stop support teen teens told traditional transmitted unmarried web wife woman Women wrong wrote year years young Mon, 10 Nov 2008 02:00:00 +0000 admin 31536 at http://www.mrc.org Glamour's Women of the Year Lean Left http://www.mrc.org/articles/glamours-women-year-lean-left <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> By</div> <a href="/author/colleen-raezler">Colleen Raezler</a> </div> </div> </div> <p>Nearing the end of 2007 can only mean one thing: it's time for lists. The Most Inspirational, The Sexiest, and The Most Fascinating. Lists of Fill-In-The-Blank People of the Year are starting to hit airwaves and newsstands. </p> <p><em>Glamour</em> magazine is out of the gate with its “Women of the Year” profiles featured in the December issue.  It's not a surprise that not one strong conservative woman is featured. Thankfully however, neither are Senator Hillary Clinton or Rosie O'Donnell. And though both were left off the list the liberal tilt is clearly evident.    </p><p><a href="http://www.mrc.org/articles/glamours-women-year-lean-left" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Articles MRC Culture Education AnnRomney bias cancer ElizabethEdwards glamour health Iraq LaraLogan liberal magazines MichelleMalkin MiriamGrossman multiplesclerosis sex wife Wed, 21 Nov 2007 05:00:00 +0000 admin 27603 at http://www.mrc.org Bad Company http://www.mrc.org/special-reports/bad-company <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> By</div> <a href="/author/bmi-staff">BMI Staff</a> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.mrc.org/bmi/reports/2006/Bad_Company_Executive_Summary.html">See Executive Summary</a></p><p><a href="http://www.mrc.org/special-reports/bad-company" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Special Reports MRC Business 2005 affair agents amy annabelle anti bad bmi boss business businessman businessmen case casino cbss CEO character characters charles cliff commerce companies company Crime criminal criminals desperate discovered dramas drug employees entertainment episode episodes family firm good home honest housewives husband industry joe kids kill law left lynette made medium Miami monica montecito murder nbcs negative network nina november offered office order patient percent pharmaceutical plot plots portrayed Primetime private reality research scott sector shows society staff start studied study Television tom vegas venture victims Video wife Women work worked workplace young Wed, 21 Jun 2006 19:23:00 +0000 admin 30559 at http://www.mrc.org
