Founder Says Rolling Stone Erred in Retracting Rape Article"CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. â€” In a defiant defense of the magazine he founded and owns, Jann S. Wenner said Rolling Stone was wrong to fully retract a discredited 2014 article about allegations of a gang rape at the University of Virginia, asserting in videotaped testimony shown on Friday that much of the material in the article was correct.
â€œWe did everything reasonable, appropriate up to the highest standards of journalism to check on this thing,â€ Mr. Wenner said in a libel trial in federal court here. â€œThe one thing we didnâ€™t do was confront Jackieâ€™s accusers â€” the rapists.â€"
