CNN’s Steubenville Rape Coverage Draws Petition Demanding Apology
The famed network is recieving a lot of back lash for the backwards coverage of the rape trial. CNN has spent more time focusing on the damage to the lives and the “promising futures” of the two teenagers convicted of raping a girl than on what had happened to the girl herself.

There is a petition been posten on a website called change.org . I urge you all to sign it in support of the victim.

“That CNN decided to paint the tears of the convicted Steubenville rapists in a sympathetic light and say how their lives were ruined — while completely ignoring the fact that the rape victim’s life is the one whose life was ruined by these rapists’ actions — is disgusting and helps perpetuate a shameful culture in which young people never understand the concept of consent and in which rape victims are blamed and ostracized. Changing that culture must be done brick by brick, and it can start by heaping public shame on this major cable news network and forcing them to admit that they are wrong. Publicly.”
