This afternoon, the Washington Post published a detailed — and pretty devastating — report blowing even more holes in Rolling Stone’s dubious account of an alleged gang rape at UVA.

But Vox “education reporter” Libby Nelson doesn’t understand why the Post would bother with such a labor-intensive endeavor:

Maybe she should be worrying about the damage caused by narrative journalists like Sabrina Rubin Erdely.

The point is that Erdely and Rolling Stone screwed up big time — and baselessly dragged UVA through the mud in the process.
