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.

    I will expect something less than the truth, and the apology will be a non-apology.

      “The past few months, since my Rolling Stone article “A Rape on Campus” was first called into question, have been among the most painful of my life. Reading the Columbia account of the mistakes and misjudgments in my reporting was a brutal and humbling experience. I want to offer my deepest apologies: to Rolling Stone’s readers, to my Rolling Stone editors and colleagues, to the U.V.A. community, and to any victims of sexual assault who may feel fearful as a result of my article.

      She never really apologized to the fraternity, and Rolling Stone says they will not fire her. Time to…..Cry Havoc! And Let Slip the Dogs of Law!

    How do the Greeks on all university campuses get their reputations back? I’m not deeply entwined with sororities or fraternities, but they have the right to exist or do they today? It seems that the media is nipping at their heels all the time.

      sure they have the right to assembly, etc.

      but should they be supported as part of any public university? that is ridiculous.

      in my opinion.

      but then again i don’t see why a state university should pay money for people to play sports.

      if we believe we need a state school to edumacate people, then let’s do it; that and nothing extraneous with the taxpayer’s dollar.

      anything else is elitism, not appropriate use of tax dollars.

        None of the frats on my campus recieved funding, they simply were able to use campus facilities for meetings, just like any other group. They all owned their own houses and the members paid dues that covered their costs.

        I had a few friends that pledged and then dropped out, it wasn’t for them. But for many it is a great experience.

    Columbia University School of Journalism did an independent audit. Huh… huhuh..huh-huuuh hah-hah-ha… hahahahahahahahahahaha… HAAAAA-HAAAAH!!!!

    That sounds as credible and impartial as United Nations oversight of Iran’s nuclear arms program!

    The last credible journalist who graduated from Columbia J-School probably drove his Pa’s Pierce Arrow, wore a raccoon coat and drank at The 21 Club when it was a speak-easy. “Twenty-three skidoo… all ‘a you!”

    If the “rape culture epidemic” myth were true, they would not have to resort to fake victims to publicize it.

    Just like the “epidemic of innocent black boys being murderd by racist cops” myth. They would not have to fictionalize thugs like Mike Brown and Trayvon Martin into innocent little boys if they had real examples of innocent boys to use to promote their racist myths.

    It just makes the real victims of rape and racism have a harder time when it actually does happen.

      Do we truly know the race of Jackie Tawana Brawely Lena Dunham? Or is that a wild-ass-guess? It was certainly was a false accusation. Why was the fraternity not offered A CHANCE TO DEFEND ITSELF ??

        I do take wild-@ss-guesses, from the CTH article, Jackie was encountered by “males” and she said, they said “mutherfuker”, as I recall, rather Ebonic I think, I did not have time to read the original Rolling Stone piece, it may reveal more ghetto slang, hope the Fraternity sues, RS didn’t fire the writer

    I do hope that RS and Sabrina personally get sued into oblivion. But then again, what should be expected from a rock ‘n’ roll rag. It’s never had any credibility and has always been crap, even when it came to pop music reportage (it wasn’t even serious about rock ‘n’ roll and rock ‘n’ roll is inherently not serious about anything). This is just a great big “look, squirrel!” where the shills got caught hopefully in a jagged, rusty bear trap.

    Off topic, but when a Senator Harry Reid, states that, “Romney did not pay taxes for 12 years”, and then, is asked about it, he thinks that his LYING IS A BIG JOKE. Now a person invents a big lie story about an innocent fraternity, and R. S. thinks it is a big joke. What is wrong with these liberals?

    RS claims their first error was believing an unstable fabulist, LIE. Their first error was sending a questionable reporter on an expedition to find a story to support their false narrative designed to further emasculate and demonize American males, to gain the power to further form/twist our children’s minds and souls into the perfect cogs for their perfect machine.

    This is willful complicity in the destruction of Western Civilization. Of Humanity itself. But I repeat myself.

    Oh, and who do they blame? The “victim,” of course. The cardinal sin, unless it’s your ass in the fire…

    “Red flags were similarly raised in an interview with Slate, during which Erdely acknowledged that she did not speak to the accused fraternity members because they were “kind of hard to get in touch with.” ”

    Translation: I didn’t bother to speak to the accused because I didn’t want them to disprove my story.

    Progressive journalism (“yellow journalism”) as its best…

    That’s the beauty of the US Legal System and its theory of protected classes, no matter how many wrongs you add together, they always make a right: In contrast to the UVA fraternity system, gentrified remnants of the slave owning class. EEK! Automatic wrong!
    Sabrina Erdelyi Liberal female writer; protected class
    ‘Jackie” female rape victim; protected class
    Hannah Graham, female rape and murder victim; protected class
    Jessie Mathews Jr, serial rapist and murderer, but black; therefore protected class
    Rolling Stone Magazine, Liberal go to publication, a favored media outlet for the current Andreas Lubitz Hussein Obama Administration; protected class.

    The most disgusting thing was the editor of the Rolling Stone apologized to everyone except her victim: those falsely accused of rape.

    “The past few months, since my Rolling Stone article ‘A Rape on Campus’ was first called into question, have been among the most painful of my life. Reading the Columbia account of the mistakes and misjudgments in my reporting was a brutal and humbling experience. I want to offer my deepest apologies: to Rolling Stone’s readers, to my Rolling Stone editors and colleagues, to the U.V.A. community, and to any victims of sexual assault who may feel fearful as a result of my article,” she said in the statement.

    She’s clearly not sorry. If she were she would have resigned and apologized to the individuals she has wronged. This is an extremely evil person.

      The 2 men that were quoted by Ms. Erdely, should sue the Bejesus out of her – for SLANDER and LIBEL. How would you like to read an article, and read a infamous quote – when YOU WERE NEVER INTERVIEWED?? Erdely had a “pre-programmed” agenda, to “get” the “frat-boys”, and no element of truth – ever entered her story. SHE MUST BE FIRED.
