Sabrina Rubin Erdely, author of Rolling Stone magazine about a rape at a University of Virginia fraternity, has issued a statement. You can read it in full below. And when you do, look out for her apologising to the victims:

“The past few months, since my Rolling Stone article “A Rape on Campus” was first called into question, have been among the most painful of my life. Reading the Columbia account of the mistakes and misjudgments in my reporting was a brutal and humbling experience. I want to offer my deepest apologies: to Rolling Stone’s readers, to my Rolling Stone editors and colleagues, to the U.V.A. community, and to any victims of sexual assault who may feel fearful as a result of my article.

Everyone gets an apology apart from the men who were wrongly accsued of rape.

“Over my 20 years of working as an investigative journalist including at Rolling Stone, a magazine I grew up loving and am honored to work for I have often dealt with sensitive topics and sources. In writing each of these stories I must weigh my compassion against my journalistic duty to find the truth.
