    A classic view of how the news is manipulated, this is about the story of the girl being raped on video tape in Las Vegas. On the Home Page of Fox, one of the headlines says that the "7 year old victim is found safe and sound", after you link to the story the "sound" part is deleted. My question is how can a 7 year old girl who was videotaped as she was raped be "Sound"??? So should I assume that if she is safe and sound I should read the article, another example for the sheeple to just look at an article and assume something that is not.. and for all intents and purposes is not a good thing, but a very bad thing that happened to this 7 year old girl. No matter how you frame it is a very bad story, that cannot be made nice.

    LAS VEGAS — A young girl who was seen being sexually assaulted in a homemade videotape has been found and is safe with relatives and sheriff's officials, authorities said Friday.

    "She looks like a very happy 7-year-old girl," Nye County sheriff's Detective David Boruchowitz said at a news conference late Friday. She was 3 when the tape was made, he said.

    Chester Arthur Stiles, who was previously being sought for questioning, is now considered a suspect but remains at large, Nye County Sheriff Tony DeMeo said.

    Stiles has tenuous ties to the family through friends, Boruchowitz said

    Do we now have to start a thread for every MSNBC or CNN wording that we don't like ?

    So the point of your ranting and raving here is simply about them using the word "sound" in the article's sub-headline..?

    Ohhhhhhhhhhhh kaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyy..... someone's just a wee bit obsessed with Fox News here... not naming names...

    Ugh, you are being ridiculous here. CNN has the same story in which the girl is described by police as "safe and in good condition." Fox got that headline FROM WHAT DETECTIVES SAID. The girl appeared to be OK both physically and mentally according to police, so that's what was reported.

    Still think describing a 3 year old girl who was raped and videotaped as sound is somewhat disengenous... just thought is was ironic, glad to see the knee jerk defense of Fox that is encouraging and predictable.

    Well, the rape occurred when she was 3, but she is now 7. Clearly it was something that may leave emotional scars for the rest of her life, but if you want to blame someone for the mischaracterization blame the police. I have to say I'm just as encouraged to see you trying to blame Fox News for something they didn't do, it lowers your credibility in fairly assessing their coverage.

    If you believe this you would not understand, to minimize the effects on this child is huge.. she is not "sound" as fox would want us to believe, everytime the NYT or WAPO says something similar there is a mud slinging contest, this time Fox is wrong and stupid, take it for what it is worth. This "may not leave emotional scars" it leaves huge scars...

    Please understand I'm not trying to minimize the scars something like that would leave, but that is what the police actually said, it is not editorializing by Fox in any way, and to blame them for it is flat wrong.

    She was found safe and sound at the time they found her, she was far from safe and sound four years ago.

    Because the rape happened four years ago they were worried that in that time something had happened to her but I guess it didn't because they found her, safe and sound.

    Translation: "I was criticizing Fox News then I got my ass handed to me when others pointed out how silly my criticism was, so I will just accuse them of a 'knee jerk defense.'"

    The rape occured 4 years ago when the little girl was 3 years old. You should read the entire article.

    Are you serious? You're talking about a story you don't even understand, and your sticking point is the commonly used term "safe and sound"? Oh my.

    Safe & Sound:
    1 She isn't dead
    2 She has no broken bones
    3 She isn't being raped now
    4 She isn't starving to death now
    5 She is safe and sound NOW.

    We all know that she will probably have flash memory's of this in later life but for the time being she is "Safe & Sound" NOW

    I hope the Raping bastard get Penis Cancer

    .


    I happen to agree she was certainly NOT sound, and never really will be. It was the lowest of the lowest crimes against another human being, what someone did to that little girl. Those who do that kind of thing often times don't serve out their full terms in prison.

    But to take issue with Fox on this is just ridiculous.
