The righteous indignation of the Internet is aimed straight at CNN's coverage of the Steubenville case

"Fact-wise, few had complaints about CNN telling the truth. It was how they told it that's stirred nationwide anger. In correspondent Poppy Harlow's report from Steubenville, she waxed compassionate in speaking about how the convicted rapists 'that had promising futures, star football players, very good students, literally watched as they believed their lives fell apart.' The whole segment more or less follows that vein of reasoning with the other two on-air personalities saying similar things, and the Internet was not happy about that. Then CNN revealed the name of the victim on air, with MSNBC and Fox News to follow."
