Amen! The biggest rape hoax in print in recent memory defamed a completely innocent dean.



Jury Finds Rolling Stone Guilty Of Defamation

Via Politico:

A federal jury in Virginia found that Rolling Stone magazine, parent company Wenner Media and reporter Sabrina Rubin Erdely were guilty of defamation.

The defamation case concerns a November 2014 cover story in Rolling Stone magazine about an alleged rape at the University of Virginia. The story was later discredited and the magazine retracted it, in April 2015.

After Rolling Stone retracted the story, U.Va. dean of students Nicole Eramo — who was portrayed very negatively in the article — sued Rolling Stone for defamation, arguing that the magazine should have known that the story was false.

After deliberating for 14 hours over multiple days, a federal jury on Friday found that the defendants in the case acted with “actual malice” and were therefore guilty of defamation. The jury will determine the amount of damages to award to Eramo at a later date. Eramo is seeking at least $7.5 million.

I was curious about whether Eramo is still employed at U-VA, and went to W'pedia to see if they have an article on her. To my mild surprise, they do not. While there I found something interesting (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sabrina_Erdely#Rolling_Stone_article:_.22The_Catho lic_Church.27s_Secret_Sex-Crime_Files.22). The U-VA case wasn't the first time "reporter" Erdely and Rolling Stone published a bandwagon-jumping sex abuse "news" story that fell apart under fact-checking.

Eramo is still employed at UVA (http://heavy.com/news/2016/10/dean-nicole-eramo-uva-lawsuit-interview-twitter-letter-abc-news-2020/), but in a different position. I'm not familiar with academia's hierarchy and lowerarchy, but Eramo's position sounds like a well-paid demotion designed to minimize her contact with students.

ETA: The article I linked mentions that Eramo received a number of emails hoping that she has a daughter and that the daughter would be raped, presumably so that Eramo would learn how it "feels". I have a feeling that after winning this defamation lawsuit that she has and will receive quite a few more.

I hope this judgment - and the cost of litigation - financially devastates Rolling Stone and Erdely. Probably a forlorn hope.

This leads me to believe that Erdely and RS are part of an "activist" operation. A real journalistic mag would have steered clear of Erdely once the first story fell apart. The purpose of the UVA rape story was to get the DOE's "Dear Colleague" recommendations followed by every university. That part has succeeded. I also believe that Jackie Coakley was part of the activism and not just a "crazy" girl who made a fake rape allegation. The fact that the same law firm that defended Monica Lewinsky represented Jackie Coakley smacks of a political connection. I think Erdely was told to go seek Jackie out and tell her story.

I'm not familiar with academia's hierarchy and lowerarchy, but Eramo's position sounds like a well-paid demotion designed to minimize her contact with students.

Her official title is: Executive Director, Assessment and Planning. It's a strategic position, out of the day to day dealings with students. I feel for this woman: she lost a career she liked (along with her reputation) because of a fake "social justice" agenda that had nothing to do with her personally.

Liberals are sick bastards and feminists are the worst. It's interesting how they are quite willing to have the innocent daughter of someone they hate suffer. Even if Eramo had done every action mentioned in Erdely's lying article, her daughter is an innocent party. The desire to rape the innocent is part of the dark side of feminism.

I do not believe this judgement will devastate Rolling Stone: I have thought for a long time that, like Ms. Magazine, RS receives funding from an intelligence service. The purpose of both mags is to "catapult the propaganda" as Dubya would say.
