Rolling Stone Pulls Way Back On UVA Rape Story Over 'Discrepancies'

rolling

Rolling Stone Magazine has pulled way back on the University of Virginia rape story that caused national headlines last month.
Media shitstorm, possible libel lawsuits etc..
In their statement they mention that they are sorry they accepted the story at face value and did not consult with the accused, and that there are discrepancies with the story and that their trust with the woman was misplaced. Jezebel apologizes without reservation for calling doubters "idiots"
