Rolling Stone apologizes for Virginia rape story

Posted By on Fri, Dec 5, 2014 at 1:45 PM

Rolling Stone has apologized for its blockbuster story about a gang rape at the University of Virginia. Discrepancies in the story have caused the magazine to conclude that trust in the source (not the writer as I originally wrote) was "misplaced."

The fraternity targeted in the story has disputed it categorically and provided evidence for problems in factual assertions.

The Washington Post has done some extensive reporting on the story and I recommend this account for details.

This is a disaster for many reasons.
