The Case For "Airing Dirty Laundry"
Syndicated columnist Cathy Seipp peers into the San Francisco dog mauling case and the Kobe case and comes up where I do -- concluding that rape victims identities shouldnt be kept out of the media:

...yes, rape is violating and dehumanizing - but no more so (and probably less) than being torn apart like a rabbit caught by hounds. To suggest otherwise buys into the notion that sexual assault - alone among all kinds of assault - somehow contaminates its victim. The media has no business indulging this kind of thinking.
