U.VA. Gang Rape Story Collapses

Rolling Stone magazine issued a statement today: “In the face of new information, there now appear to be discrepancies in Jackie’s account, and we have come to the conclusion that our trust in her was misplaced.”   So we are supposed to think the magazine was a victim? What a crock.

“New information” such as the apparent fact that the University of Virginia fraternity where the gang rape allegedly took place apparently did not have a party on the night of the gang rape by 7 men. Maybe that explains why the Rolling Stone reporter did not bother interviewing any other attendees at the party where the gang rape supposedly took place.

Folks who have doubted the Rolling Stone story have been equated with Holocaust deniers – perhaps the next term of abuse with be “calendar deniers”?

I look forward to someone compiling a list of all the terms used to attack folks who doubted the initial lurid story.

    Don’t forget to include “antediluvian” on the list.

    I guess I won’t be shopping my story about how Bill Cosby raped me to Rolling Stone.

    Maybe wait and see who they select as the new editor.
