FoxNews has no decency, no shame. Today, it "accidently" disclosed the name of the victim of the rape in Stubenville in a video it showed on air:
In an act of serious journalistic negligence, Fox News this morning ran tape of the Steubenville rape trial in which one of the rapists named the victim.
Typically in sexual assault cases, the major news media’s policy is not to name a victim. This is doubly true in the Steubenville case, where the victim is also a minor. But Fox News, in what seems to be an editing mistake, ran a clip from the court room where Mays said the victim’s name:
I would truly like to apologize to [redacted], her family, my family and the community. No picture should have been sent around, let alone even taken.
Out of respect for the victim, ThinkProgress will not publish the name, or the video.
Sexist pigs. That's the Republican party's network: FoxNews. There is not much lower than Mssr. Ailes and Murdock's scummy network. This is no mistake; it's their policy to shame victims.
