CJS Review of Rolling Stone UVA Rape Article ‘Damning’

Posted: Updated: Mar 27, 2015 01:23 PM
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - A blog from the website Politico says a Columbia Journalism School review of Rolling Stone magazine's article about a rape at the University of Virginia is exhaustive and "damning."

The blog's author cites sources saying that the review offers a blunt indictment of Rolling Stone's reporting, and its violation of journalism ethics.

The article centers on a woman called “Jackie” who claimed to have been gang-raped at a Phi Kappa Psi fraternity house.

It has since been mostly discredited and the magazine did apologize.

The blog's author says the review was submitted to Rolling Stone this week, and a portion will run in the magazine's next issue.
