Upside down justice at CNN

A sixteen year old girl gets raped at a party by two star football players and even has her nude picture sent out as a trophy shot by one of the rapists.  The two football players get their day in court and are both convicted of rape.

So what lead angle do you think Candy Crowley of CNN took when reporting the breaking news of the rape convictions? Did she report that justice was served for the victim and her family? Did she explain and give insight into the horror and trauma rape victims go through, often for the rest of their lives? Or did she report on how rape is becoming a growing concern today at high school and college parties involving alcohol and drug use? Surly, as a woman, Candy Crowley touched on some of these points in her report?

Guess again.

Candy Crowley's report on CNN of the two Steubenville high school football players' rape trial barely mentioned the rape victim or her family. Her report was basically nothing more than a pity fest for the convicted rapists. Crowley began the report by saying that she "could not imagine how emotional this must have been sitting in the court room." But Crowley's "emotional" interpretation wasn't concerning the rape victim or her family, it was focused on the two rapists and how this conviction not only traumatized them but how it could ultimately ruin their "promising" lives? And the on-site reporter Poppy Harlow who had been covering the trial seemed on the brink of tears as she spoke to Crowley of the emotional apologies both rapists gave in court.

As a parent of a teen age daughter, as I am sure many AT readers are, I was sickened by what I observed in Crowley's report.

Candy Crowley sums up in one sentence how utterly disconnected CNN has become from main street America with her deplorable question to a CNN legal contributor at the end of her report:

"What's the lasting effect though on two young men being found in juvenile court of rape - essentially?"

Really, Crowley is concerned for the "lasting effects" of the two convicted rapists but not the rape victim?

If Candy Crowley and CNN now regard the real victims of rape as the rapists, then CNN and the likes of people who call themselves journalists who work for them represent the most disgusting and immoral aspect of today's liberal media.
