NY Times Issues Rebuke of Victim Blaming in Texas Rape Article!

From Change.org:

Big news! After a massive outcry from more than 40,000 Change.org members — which led to news coverage in the Huffington Post, Village Voice, and even London’s Daily Mail — New York Times public editor Arthur S. Brisbane has issued a strong rebuke of the victim-blaming in a recent article by reporter James McKinley about the gang-rape of an 11-year-old girl and her community’s response.

See, we can all make a difference!  Your voice can be heard!  The power of the Internet to almost immediately and overwhelming express public opinion on almost any important issue is powerful and persuasive.  There is hope for democracy yet!
