    We are getting more hysterical about rape as it becomes less of a problem in our society.

    Mother Earth had to change focus when the 'back to the land' movement petered out and Rolling Stone had to change gears the day the music died. Both chose to go Left thinking their audience, who they figured were unable to think critically, would follow.

    Even a cursory investigation would have shown the facts of this particular case point to a false testimony. Rolling Stone is guilty of lazy reporting.

    That should have nothing to do with future rape investigations where the victim was actually raped.

    Why would it deter actual victims of rape? They could find zero proof in this case -- in a REAL case, there are all kinds of proof.

    News from The Associated Press

    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- The fraternity at the center of a now-discredited Rolling Stone rape article says the story was defamatory and reckless and they are pursuing legal action against the magazine.

    Phi Kappa Psi said Monday in a statement that the article was viewed by millions, led to members being ostracized and there was vandalism of the fraternity house.

    Unfortunately there is no way to avoid that.

    Reading about the complete lack of journalistic integrity that went into this article is jaw dropping. That nobody has been fired over it is even more amazing. The author quoted people in her article that she never even spoke to.

    Along those lines, what gets me is this: They were quick to latch onto the story, quick to write the story, quick to publish the story, but... dragged their feet in any sort of correction once the truth came to light.

    In kind of a perverse way, I think they wanted it to be true. And not just because of the ding they suffered regarding their credibility.

    In that sense the man is a freakin' genius.

    Rolling Stone magazine retracted its article about a brutal gang rape at a University of Virginia fraternity after the release of a report on Sunday that concluded the widely discredited piece was the result of failures at every stage of the process.

    The report, published by the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism and commissioned by Rolling Stone, said the magazine failed to engage in “basic, even routine journalistic practice” to verify details of the ordeal that the magazine’s source, identified only as Jackie, described to the article’s author, Sabrina Rubin Erdely.


    Well, it appears Mr. Wenner has his dck in a wringer once again...and he's sounding like Obama in his "explanation"....

    Oops, there Jan, other journalists know bull**** when they see it, and no amount of pretzel speak is going to change the fact you ****ed up. Big time.

    Handing this off to "Jackie" the unnamed source as kind of her fault, but "we're not blaming Jackie" is the kind of thing you live off, destroying people who do that that is.

    "Jackie" is one in a few thousand who come along with a "good story"...and reporters in their intern year learn a basic technique, you confirm at least the basic details; police reports, doctor reports, eye witnesses etc. And, Mr. Jenner in future if this one time managing editor may make a suggestion: if, as in 99.9% of all stories you cannot obtain some form of collaboration, it goes to the dead file.
