Trigger Warning: NYT Addresses Its Hideous Coverage of a Rape in Texas (by res ipsa loquitur)

The world feels like it's falling to pieces and I'm up to my neck in work that is very definitely unimportant, but I did want to point you to this update from the NYT on its sexist, insensitive, creepy story about the gang rape of an eleven-year-old child in Texas. I haven't had time to read the update carefully, but I'm sure you will and will analyze it in comments.

Also, if stupidity required a trigger warning, this story about Rand Paul, abortion, and light bulbs would get one.
