I'm surprised that the Steubenville High School rape case

hasn't been brought up here. If there's anything to feel outraged about it's this. High School Coach has the football team over August 11th with an open bar, girl gets wasted, girl gets vilely assaulted by multiple attackers and the pictures and videos from cell phones get posted on the internet. Everybody has a great laugh, then nearly everybody in school turns on the girl. What a lovely picture of Youth in America.
I find it interesting that Fox didn't do much research itself but was mostly dependent on the New York Times and CNN. So much for serving their own community which is part of what a broadcaster is supposed to do..
Apparently what has caused the current uptick in interest is the hacker group Anonymous, who have taken this case seriously, and by threatening to spread it far and wide have forced the situation out into the open, though the victim remains anonymous.
It was a big story this evening on Anderson Cooper 360, hosted by Ashleigh Banfield.
I'm not happy with vigilante activity like this, but cases like this are so often swept under the rug.
