.@washingtonpost obviously played a vital role discrediting Rolling Stone story. But not sure what the endgame is in continuing to pursue.
It seems clear that 1) something awful happened to Jackie 2) we’re not going to find out exactly what 3) RS is completely discredited.

@libbyanelson Seems WaPo’s time would be better spent focusing on the federal review on UVA’s sexual assault policies.

Anyway, there are risks to this constant pursuit of a non-public figure (http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/act-four/wp/2014/12/10/what-rolling-stone-can-learn-from-grantland-about-explaining-a-story-gone-wrong/ …) and I worry a little. That’s all.

@libbyanelson At this point the @washingtonpost “story continues to unravel” narrative is obscuring more than it clarifies

@kevincarey1 Yeah. The last report is very damaging to RS. But also incredibly confusing in and of itself.

@kevincarey1 Not sure at what point “pointing out RS’s colossal screwups” is worth the collateral damage to Jackie, who didn’t ask for this.

“It seems clear that 1) something awful happened to Jackie 2) we’re not going to find out exactly what 3) RS is completely discredited.”
Keeping the narrative alive. If “something awful” happened to Jackie, then the frat brothers are criminals, and women on campus are under siege. Like the Duke lacrosse players, they are guilty in terms of a *truth* that stands apart from mere facts and evidence.
I’m especially fond of the “we’re not going to find out exactly what (happened)”, and “But not sure what the endgame is in continuing to pursue”.
Yup, it’s time to move on so we can all get back to dealing with the important issues of Rape Culture, and the War On Women.
