Lashing Waived for Female Journalist in Saudi Sex Scandal

This article is about a female Saudi journalist who is accused of being a part of a sex scandal that violates the Saudi Arabian law and religion. I can’t even believe the laws and repercussions that they subject their citizens to after being involved in something such as this. If you read the article they describe the punishment that one receives for having sex outside of marriage. It’s horrific! Also, I can’t help but wonder if this would have been newsworthy if she wouldn’t have been a journalist. Do you think that because she was a part of the media that her story got more attention than normal?
