‘Hitler Made a Difference’: The Liberal Gang Rape of Journalism

Rolling Stone magazine perpetrated a hoax against the University of Virginia, doing “journalism” about an alleged gang rape that evidently never happened. The source of the dramatic tale Rolling Stone published last November, “A Rape on Campus,” was a UVA student named Jackie who has been proven to be a liar. Her freshman year at UVA, Jackie invented a make-believe boyfriend she called “Haven Monahan” as part of an unsuccessful attempt to inspire the jealousy of her friend Ryan Duffin, on whom she had a romantic crush. This deceptive scheme apparently led to Jackie’s subsequent claim that she was gang-raped at the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity house during a date with this non-existent boyfriend on the night of Sept. 28, 2012.

    Rolling Stone may have retracted, but today I found some of MSNBC’s offerings still up on their website. When they showed a picture of East Lawn when talking about fraternities & rape, my blood boiled.

    An excellent article by Robert McCain. The truth doesn’t matter to the MSM, it get’s in the way of their agenda.

    • Forty plus years of teaching hate in feminist studies classes puts the icing on the progressive cake.

    “For most members of the modern media, the news business has ceased to be a business and is no longer about news. Instead, journalism has become a sort of missionary field for political zealots engaged in an evangelical crusade for what Ann Coulter called “The Church of Liberalism.” Young liberals become journalists for the same reason others go to work for UNICEF or the Peace Corps, because they want to “make a difference.” Liberal journalists conceive of their careers as a sacred calling, to assist the forces of “progress” in creating a world of “social justice.” ”

    This one thing, and one thing alone makes the news media unique and such a difficult problem.
    The key take-away is that THIS IS NO LONGER A BUSINESS.
    No, instead other tactics must be used.

    Because the simple fact is that truth no longer matters to the mainstream media.

      I wouldn’t be surprised if the walls of newsrooms displayed a poster, “It’s the narrative, stupid.”

    There will be MILLIONS and MILLIONS a in litigation suits over this. Will networks be named as “accessories”? Only time will tell. But judgement day is coming for the MSM, and Rolling Stone is about as MSM as they come.

    Rolling Stone got off on a wrong foot when it started telling us about how wonderful drug induced guitar players are. Then it attempted to become Time magazine.
