At UVA Commencement, Ed Helms Slams Rolling Stone for Fake Rape Story

‘A Rolling Stone gathers no moss; I would add that sometimes a Rolling Stone also gathers no verifiable facts or even the tiniest morsels of journalistic integrity’

“I know the UVA community has some experience with being defined by outsiders. It has been said that a Rolling Stone gathers no moss. I would add that sometimes a Rolling Stone also gathers no verifiable facts or even the tiniest morsels of journalistic integrity.

Rolling Stone tried to define you this year. As a result, not only was this community thrown deep into turmoil, but the incredibly important struggle to address sexual violence on campuses nationwide was suddenly more confusing than ever and needlessly set back. Sadly, Rolling Stone‘s rush to define is just the tip of the iceberg. We see it everywhere in the media.”
