    Crime & Punishment: UConn TV network in trouble for airing rape jokes
    UConn's TV network hosted on its website and twice aired a sketch full of rape jokes. In the clip, part of a student-produced “comedy” series, a young woman runs from a masked attacker only to have the blue-light emergency phones call her a “cock gobbler,” “stinky bitch” and “howler monkey.” “[Y]ou blonde bitches don't understand,” the object says in a Siri-like voice, “always crying about being raped. Suck it up.” In the hilarious finale, the rapist strangles the woman and drags her off. Women's groups and other sensible people on campus were outraged and UCTV issued an apology and took the video off its site (though someone sent a copy to the website Gawker).
