Connections: Rolling Stone Retraction Aftermath

Apr 6, 2015

Rolling Stone has officially retracted their November blockbuster story, "A Rape on Campus." On Sunday, the magazine published a 12,000-word review conducted by the Columbia Journalism School that took apart the many journalistic failures in the piece. The result? Victims advocates now worry that rape survivors will encounter more skepticism, less support.

That's a timely conversation because on Tuesday, April 14th, the Little is showing the documentary "The Hunting Ground." We'll talk about rape on campus, the Rolling Stone mess, and more with our guests:
