Some rapes are worse than others

The premeditated rape and murder of a young girl and members of her family in Mahmudiya is certainly one of the more horrific incidents of the invasion and occupation of Iraq. On FOX News, I could find exactly two articles on the subject. The Duke rape case, by contrast, pulls up page after page of hits; indeed, flicking through channels over the past few months I think it's fair to say it has been a nightly subject of considerable attention not just on FOX, but on many other of the cable "news" channels as well.

Don't worry, though; just as soon as FOX and its clones can find a way to shift the blame to the victims, I'm sure the coverage of the Mahmudiya story will be stepped up.
