Fox News Los Angeles recently did a story on ESOAL. It was originally slated to run in tandem with the Southern California ATF, but that event was cancelled.
The producers interviewed me as well as two other recovering alumni for the piece. I had hoped it would cover the Honor Academy in general, but they instead chose to focus on ESOAL. Perhaps because that is what they have footage of? I imagine its difficult to show footage of constant confrontations, sleep deprivation, guilt trips, etc…
Overall, its not my favorite media piece on Teen Mania but anything that helps expose people to the other side of the story is a good thing in my opinion.
My kudos and thanks to the very brave participants who also gave interviews for this story. If you would like to contribute to future stories, please email me at recoveringalumni at hotmail dot com.
