With the jury having found Rolling Stone guilty of “actual malice” in UVA bureaucrat Nicole Eramo’s lawsuit against the famous magazine over its broken glass gang rape blood libel, it’s worth looking at how many prominent journalists enthusiastically backed Erdely’s absurd concoction:
Last summer, historian KC Johnson put up a blog post archiving enthusiastic tweets Sabrina Rubin Erdely received in November 2014 from other professional journalists praising her ludicrous Rolling Stone hate hoax “A Rape on Campus.”
Goldberg has recently been promoted to editor-in-chief of The Atlantic.
Dan Zak is a Washington Post reporter. It wasn’t good enough for him that one fraternity was subject to a Night of Broken Glass mob breaking its windows and all fraternities on campus were shut. He tweeted: “Now burn ‘em down.”
Johnson has collected many more such tweets from professional MSM journalists who went out of their way to praise and promote without a hint of skepticism Erdely’s crazy article.
