UVA Rape Story Report

Hosted by

Last November, Rolling Stone printed a shocking story of gang rape at the University of Virginia. The story received much attention across the country, adding to the chorus of voices demanding more accountability for sexual assault on college campuses. But subsequent investigation has found that the rape victim’s story doesn’t hold up. And a new report by the Columbia Journalism Review finds that Rolling Stone failed at almost every level in catching the fabrication before it was published.
