In America, rape is evidently considered a less serious crime than hacking now based on the case of Deric Lostutter, the hacktivist better known as KYAnonymous. Lostutter helped expose the cover-up of the infamous Steubenville rape incident, in which a 16-year-old was sexually assaulted by two star football players in the small Ohio town.
Despite the principal's plea to not report the attack, the victim filed charges against the basketball player out of fear he would strike again. Those fears were confirmed just two weeks later when he is said to have sexually assaulted another student. The story gets even more heartbreaking as it progresses.
The cable news channel's controversial reporting was eerily similar to a segment that aired two years ago on The Onion's short-lived Comedy Central sports news satire program "Sportsdome."
The disturbing 12-minute video features athletes from Steubenville High School in Ohio making fun of a 16-year-old girl who was allegedly kidnapped and raped by two of the school's star football players last summer.
