(NaturalNews) After months of stonewalling and denials, Rolling Stone magazine has finally retracted its totally fabricated “campus rape” story which claimed that fraternity rape is endemic across America’s universities. Yesterday, the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism released a detailed analysis of Rolling Stone’s mistakes, stating that “…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.” (NY Times)
The author of the story, who can only be accurately described as committing a heinous and dastardly act of journalistic fraud, isn’t even being fired by Rolling Stone magazine. After all, she did her duty as part of the mainstream leftist media now known for fabricating hoax stories to push a twisted cultural agenda. She’s another loyal foot soldier in the media’s relentless campaign of news hoaxes launched almost daily across America — hoaxes which are almost never retracted.
