This promo for The Insider ran tonight — it features paparazzi video of Kate Gosselin spanking her daughter Leah, and of course the Internet is already throwing a fit. The war against Kate Gosselin is the hottest thing going right now! (Check out the photo of last week’s newsstand I put on my Twitter.)
Opinions on the parental practice of spanking vary widely (although Ashley wrote a fantastic piece a couple weeks ago about the sexual practice of spanking). I gotta say, this video doesn’t look like abuse to me; it looks like a mother disciplining her child. But I don’t have children and I know some people feel quite differently. So, moms and dads out there, weigh in.
