This is more media than politics, but it's not about soccer and the FreeForAll Forum seems to be more of a fun thing, and this is definitely not a fun topic. I'm driving to work this morning and CBS Radio News comes on with a story in the aftermath of this kidnapper in California being killed. The teaser was something along the lines of "California girls home now after being violated" and then the story, which first talked about how the shooting went down and quoted the parents saying how relieved they were that the girls were alive - goes on to report that "it wasn't all happy though - the girls were both sexually assaulted. This is after their names have been all over the news, including in this story. So now everyone knows, thanks to the authorities and to the media, that these girls were rape victims. WHY DID THEY HAVE TO INCLUDE THAT IN THE STORY? I understand that all of us had to think that this might have happened, but I don't have some right to know that. Was law enforcement trying to deflect some criticism about having killed the guy, because he was an armed kidnapper not giving them up. that sounds like enough of a reason to me. They did say on the report that they think they saved their lives by about 10 minutes -that he was looking for a place to bury them. That also seems to be enough of a reason. I just think this is irresponsible. MSNBC just ran it to on the Imus show. Didn't this use to be off limits? When I worked in newspapers, you didn't use rape victims names. Their names were already out there, they shouldn't have reported this. It's wrong.
