It's hard enough to get the nerve to follow through with reporting a rape but fear of retaliation for doing what is right is a major reason they don't report it. The victim in the Steubenville rape case now has had her identity revealed. At first it was just Fox News but now others have followed suit and the girl has already had death threats against her. Is this responsible news or a desire to up their ratings at the expense of others, even minors? I'm appalled at this. What if it were you or your daughter or loved one? Thoughts?

Are they trying to hide behind the fact that it was all over the social media, therefore public record?! The same social media that served to further humiliate that poor girl?! That same social media that allowed others to make threats against this victim?! The mainstream media that is supposed to follow some level of decorum should have their pens shoved under their nails for printing that poor girl's name. I hope the parents sue & win for causing undue emotional turmoil to her. It's sickening. :(
