    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.

    Actually, America has the most sexually repressive culture in the West, and simultaniously some of the highest rape rates in the West.

    That is not in any way surprising. Rape rates rise as sexual repression rises in most cultures. Eventually, once you get to an extreme enough level of sexual repression, cultures just stop recognizing rape as being any different from sex at all.

    Is it possible that other cultures have the same things happen with the same frequency and that they just don't recognize/categorize it as rape?

    Not generally, no. Reporting actually drops as sexual repressiveness rises. Again, America has the lowest reporting in the West and the rape rate is probably worse than it appears. Repressive 3rd world countries often don't keep any records at all (or the consequences of a woman reporting rape are so severe that basically no one ever reports it). We know rape is extremely common there through surveys and observation.

    So in reality, the disparity between the best and worst countries for rape is actually even larger than it appears. As a general rule, the more rape is occuring, the less it's being reported or recorded.

    You may get your wish...

    Virginia fraternity chapter says it will sue Rolling Stone

    And I'll do you one better. I hope they get sued OUT of business, not just close.

    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.
    I think the assumed it was true and rushed it because they wanted to be first.

    Guess we can stop taking The Rolling Stones as a serious journalistic publication then.

    When did we start?

    I only considered them serious for music, and even that was 30+ years ago.

    ETA: Doh!!! "The Rolling Stones" (The 30+ years comment still stands, though )

    Rolling Stone was always a rag. This just confirms it.
