Just how dumb are researchers? 
Here's the latest from CNN.

More children and teens are being exposed to online pornography, mostly by accidentally viewing sexually explicit Web sites while surfing the Internet, researchers say.


Living proof that journalists are far less likely to have children than the general population.

No parent with two brain cells to rub together (and I think I qualify) would trust the self-reportage of children and teens on a hot-button issue loaded with shame and excitement like on-line pr()n, even in an anonymous poll.

Pollsters are adults, adults are authority figures, children will tell an authority figure what he/she wants to hear, even in a "safe" environment. ("Repressed memories" of molestation at the day-care center, anyone?)
