It is my sincerest hope that everyone who contributed to that @RollingStone UVA piece never finds work in journalism again. Ever.

And this likely isn’t over yet:
This is only the beginning for Rolling Stone. Eramo wasn't the only person defamed. The fraternity gets the next bite at the apple.

Hope Erdely and Rolling Stone are patting themselves on the backs today. Quite a legacy they’ve established for themselves.
Few people have done more damage to the fight against campus rape than @SabrinaRErdely — really sad.
