I came to make sure Sabrina Rubin Erdely (http://www.sabrinaerdely.com / https://twitter.com/SabrinaRErdely ) was mentioned by name.

Erdely's Rolling Stone story "A Rape on Campus" was named by Columbia Journalism Review as "the Worst Journalism of 2014" and as "Error of the Year" by the Poynter Institute.

...

the jury concluded that Erdely was responsible for defamation with actual malice. The jury’s finding means that it concluded Erdely knew statements about Eramo in the article were false — or had reason to doubt them and failed to investigate further — but published them anyway.

Ouch!

Both a spokesman for publisher Wenner and Will Dana, managing editor, said that Erdely would continue to write articles for Rolling Stone.

Hahaha! Great news for any investor!
