Yahoo! National News - Mon, 04/06/2015 - 07:09
By Ian Simpson WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A Columbia University review of a now-discredited Rolling Stone magazine story about an alleged gang rape at a University of Virginia fraternity was due out on Sunday, addressing questions of journalistic principles raised by the provocative article. Rolling Stone commissioned the review after backtracking on the story, "A Rape on Campus," which caused an uproar over the issue of campus sexual assault when it was published in November. The dissection of the article could lead to a shakeup at Rolling Stone, founded in 1967 by editor Jann Wenner, though CNN reported on Sunday that no one on the staff of the magazine was expected to be fired or punished over the debacle. Representatives of Rolling Stone were not immediately available for comment.
