Rolling Stonerevises it’s apology to readers for the story published about a woman, “Jackie”, who claims she was gang raped at a University of Virginia fraternity party. The new apology states that the magazine should not have complied with “Jackie’s” request that they not interview any of the men she said raped her. The revised apology also questions discrepancies in “Jackie’s” story.
We should have not made this agreement with Jackie, and we should have worked harder to convince her that the truth would have been better served by getting the other side of the story. These mistakes are on Rolling Stone, not on Jackie. A friend of Jackie’s (who we were told would not speak to Rolling Stone) told the Washington Post that he found Jackie that night a mile from the school’s fraternities. She did not appear to be ‘physically injured at the time’ but was shaken. She told him that that she had been forced to have oral sex with a group of men at a fraternity party, but he does not remember her identifying a specific house. Other friends of Jackie’s told the Washington Post that they now have doubts about her narrative, but Jackie told the Washington Post that she firmly stands by the account she gave to [reporter Sabrina Rubin] Erdely.
