'Off the deep end' again: Amanda Marcotte slams 'rape apologists' after UVA story update

As Twitchy reported earlier today:

Rolling Stone just updated its recent story alleging a horrific gang-rape took place at the University of Virginia with an editor’s note apologizing to readers for the quality of its reporting:

Rolling Stone apologized for not contacting the “alleged assaulters” before publishing the story:

In the face of new information, there now appear to be discrepancies in Jackie’s account, and we have come to the conclusion that our trust in her was misplaced. We were trying to be sensitive to the unfair shame and humiliation many women feel after a sexual assault and now regret the decision to not contact the alleged assaulters to get their account. We are taking this seriously and apologize to anyone who was affected by the story.

Amanda Marcotte took the opportunity to blast “rape apologists” with a straw man argument for the ages:
