When Journalism is done badly: Roll the stone

Rolling Stone rolls out a one source story about a gang rape.

Gee, we learn the source was unreliable, or as Rolling Stone says as they throw her

under the bus alone, their faith in her was “misplaced.”

If you do your damn job as a journalist and check facts and seek out the accused, it sometimes because a different story, which I bet they didn’t want.

Be very leery of one source stories.

And if you had faith in Rolling Stone journalism, I think it is safe to say your faith

was “misplaced.”
