Fox Website Exposes Duke Lacrosse Accuser's Name

Reported by Judy - December 14, 2006 -

Just when you think Fox News can't get any worse in its coverage of the Duke University lacrosse team rape allegations, it does this. With Video.

Fox News' website on Wednesday apparently published the name of the accuser, linking to a defense filing in the case without bothering to block out the accuser's name. Most news organizations do not name victims in sexual assault cases. Fox News, however, made the same "mistake" in the Kobe Bryant case.

The latest bonehead move by Fox News prompted Keith Olbermann of MSNBC's "Countdown" to award Fox News the bronze medal in his daily "Worst Person in the World" competition.

Don't be too disappointed. Another Rupert Murdoch subsidiary came away with top honors.
