Update: No-one fired, no disciplinary action, barely an apology – Essentially no consequences. Rolling Stone says; Oopsie, our bad.
EARLIER: According to CNN’s Brian Stelter Rolling Stone will be releasing the results of a Columbia Grad School journalism audit tonight. In addition the lying Rolling Stone author of the UVA hit piece, Sabrina Rubin Erdely, is also anticipated to apologize for her false story.
[…] So as questions have swirled over how the botched story made it to print, there has been virtually no explanation from the author of the piece.
But that is expected to change Sunday night, when Columbia University’s graduate school of journalism releases findings from its independent review of Rolling Stone’s debacle.
The extent to which Erdely participated in Columbia’s audit is unclear. But Brian Stelter, citing sources with direct knowledge, reported on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” on Sunday morning that Erdely is expected to release an apologetic statement in conjunction with the Columbia review. (link)
No word on how the audit will be released, but according to CNN the release is anticipated tonight.
