Inadequate sexual assault coverage

This opinion columnist reacts to the results of an Association of American Universities survey that indicated that over 20% of female college students have been sexually assaulted. She discusses the Rolling Stone article as an example of confirmation bias, which readers are more likely to believe because it confirms their suspicions about rape culture at UVA.. Furthermore, she advocates a transparent, empirically precise, anti-sensationalist approach to journalism that covers issues of sexual assault.
