Thank you, bitch, for highlighting the petition to CNN about their horrible coverage of Steubenville. It's been so unsettling how many people have valorized the rapists and chastised the victim. I've written an article on victim blaming and the concept of "asking for it" that has been reflected in so many reactions to the verdict. My piece is here: wp.me/p3iIj5-2 There have been some pretty impassioned feminist responses to the verdict. I'd love to see a roundup on bitch.

They are demanding an apology from CNN for their AWFUL coverage of the trial and verdict. I used to respect Candy Crowley with high regard. No more.


Petition is on the front page of the site.
