CNN Rapist Sympathizing Reporters

CNN came under fire for sympathetic statements it made regarding the two men convicted of raping a young woman in Steubenville, Ohio, summed up in this macro, which has almost 3,000 shares on Facebook:

"CNN broke the news on Sunday of a guilty verdict in a rape case in Steubenville, Ohio by lamenting that the "promising" lives of the rapists had been ruined, but spent very little time focusing on how the 16-year-old victim would have to live with what was done to her."

This seems to be yet another perpetrator of the accepted "Rape Culture" in our society today, I would like to here some of your opinions on this. How do you think the media should have responded and does this seem right to you? Is it is CNN's job to give an unbias account of events?
