News organizations normally have a policy of not naming sexual assault victims in their stories. For some reason, however, some of the media outlets covering yesterday's preliminary hearing in the Danny Masterson rape case chose to ignore this policy, and they used the abbreviated version of Jane Doe 1's actual name which the judge and attorneys called her by in court.

We actually know these victims. We've been covering this story for four years. And we know how terrified two of them were that their real names would be revealed during this prosecution. We just wanted to point out how disgusted we are at other news organizations that chose to re-victimize an alleged rape victim in this way yesterday.

OK, off the soap box. We'll be back in session today at Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center on the ninth floor for day two of the prelim. When the hearing starts at 9 am Masterson's criminal defense attorney Tom Mesereau will continue his cross-examination of Jane Doe 1, which took up more than half the day on Tuesday.
