This isn't so much about what I talked about in my post on Saturday. It's more about how the media portrays rape. And it doesn't come across much differently than how they portray domestic violence.
It's one thing to present "unbiased", objective information. It's another to make a crime seem much less worse than it is. Or to make it sound like it's not a crime at all. We use the word alleged in the media for murder, robbery and fraud. Why can't we use it for rape?
