Jackie is Lying, So We Can All Stop Talking About Rape Now

A satire piece about the impact of recent hedging by the editors of the Rolling Stone article, in response to an investigation by the Washington Post that cast doubt on many of its assertions and exposed holes in the the reporting and editing process. The author mocks the notion that if "Jackie's" account is proven false, the national conversation about sexual assault and rape will be rendered irrelevant. The writer argues that regardless of the accuracy of the Rolling Stone account, UVA and the nation have much work to do preventing and prosecuting sexual assaults.
