CNN, Fox News, MSNBC air name of 16yo Steubenville rape victim

Three cable news networks, CNN, Fox News and MSNBC, outed the underage victim in the Steubenville rape trial by name during reports about the case. The identification of the 16 year old rape victim occurred in the course of a clip in which one of the convicted rapists apologized to the victim and her family. Local CBS affiliate WTRF also aired the clip without editing out the victim's name. [HuffPo]
