Soup 2 Nuts Media: Podcast: The Failures Behind a Retracted Campus Rape Story

In November, Rolling Stone’s investigative piece “A Rape on Campus: A Brutal Assault and Struggle for Justice at UVA,” by Sabrina Rubin Erdely, had the journalistic community abuzz. Last week, the Columbia Journalism Review declared it “a failure that was avoidable.”

But CJR doesn’t intend for its report to serve as punishment for the journalistic shortfalls it details, says one of the report’s authors,Sheila Coronel, on this week’s podcast with ProPublica’s Jesse Eisinger and Lois Beckett. “We want to think of our work as very much the same that Sabrina did – it’s a teaching case,” says Coronel, dean of academic affairs at Columbia Journalism School and director of the Stabile Center for Investigative Journalism.
