Please consider these questions when completing your discussion post:

1- What is the main source of information for society in regards to crime?

3- In what ways do media outlets support or dispel rape myths and victim-blaming?
4- How is this related to help-seeking behavior, official reporting, and revictimization?
5- Finally, what are other sources we can use to be informed? Give examples.
