    Jesus a Chief news correspondence is REPEATEDLY raped and a crowd of 200 people surrounding this - not only did nothing - but chanted "Jew. Jew, Jew"??? (even though she isn't Jewish)

    And CBS doesn't even mention this??

    Wow.

    It is not often that I find myself defending the mainstream media, especially CBS, but they were right this time. General policy of most news agencies is not to reveal the identity of rape victims, and that desire to protect must be even greater if the victim is a coworker/friend. I read about the attack just a few hours after it occured, and it never even occured to me that CBS should go out and trumpet the fact that one of its employees was raped. What I find shameful is the people who are trumpeting the attack and trying to make political hay out of a tragedy.

    Political hay?
    A women is raped repeatedly, in public, and everyone around cheers and yells racial chants in unison...and THIS isn't political?
    Geez, we might disturb the fantasy that any Arab nation is our freind and instead see that widespread hatred among Arabs for Americans is the reality.

    We need to keep newspapers.
    Newspapers are falling everywhere, the biggest enemy of newspapers is time..they are simply not making enough profits to buy expensive presses.

    Then one day we will wake up and realize that all of our "news" is coming from a small handful of corporations.

    Even newspapers come from a fairly small handful of corporations.
    What we are typing on now is what is killing newspapers. And even newsprint journalism is not nearly as good as it used to be.

    Everyone? Does that include the group of women who rescued her?

    Since you appear to be a complete idiot I will point out that if you look through my posts you will see that I am what is routinely described on this board as an Islamaphobe. I think Islam and Sharia law are the greatest threats we face in the world today. That does not make me a complete idiot though, I deal with reality.

    CBS did the right thing.
