ABC6 pulls Ohio State alleged rape report from website

Not more than four hours after posting a report saying three Ohio State freshmen (including reportedly one that was released from the football program last week) were tied to an Ohio State police investigation of an alleged rape, WSYX ABC6 has pulled the report from their website.

There's no word on whether or not the missing article (which now produces a 404 error page on load) represented a retraction of any sort, or rather a CYA tactic related to the video on the article, which inadvertently outed one of the three players involved in the situation in addition to heavily alluding as to whom one of the others were.

A female's name was also not censored by standards that would ordinarily be considered acceptable by a media outlet like ABC6's, but it's unlikely to be the victim's as Land-Grant Holy Land's confirmed the name inadvertently revealed is not presently a student at Ohio State. Either way, not exactly a shining moment for Columbus' ABC affiliate's newsroom.
