Rolling Stone

I've avoided reading what almost anyone thinks about the Rolling Stone UVa story, so it's a little unfair that I'm imposing my opinion on you. Don't think that's going to stop me.

I think it must be one of the highest-profile examples of poor journalism.

Maybe, maybe, this fraternity is completely innocent. Even if Rolling Stone got everything wrong (and they got a lot wrong), even if none of the events reported actually happened at all, that doesn't mean that fraternities aren't frequently cesspools of entitlement and misogyny.
