The Rolling Stone, is NOT A CREDIBLE SOURCE OF NEWS. They DO NOT EXIST to parlay correct information. They write “hit pieces” when they want to destroy people. They print outright lies against people and then they take their time to retract when they are proven wrong. Case in point: Now, three men are suing Rolling Stonemagazine, claiming that the later-retracted article “A Rape on Campus: A Brutal Assault and Struggle for Justice at UVA” defamed them.
“The plaintiffs are members of Phi Kappa Psi, a fraternity the identified in the article. According to the article’s pseudonymous “Jackie,” seven young men gang-raped her at a Phi Kappa Psi party. The article follows Jackie’s alleged attempt to get alleged justice for the alleged crime from UVA administrators.
It turned out that all of those ‘alleged’s are pretty important. Shortly after Rolling Stone published the piece, skeptics nosing around in the facts discovered that Jackie’s story wasn’t adding up. (If you need to further get up to speed on the background events, Margaret Hartmann’s thorough timeline of the UVA rape case should do the trick.) SoonRolling Stone retracted the piece.
The three men now suing claim that the magazine and the author were negligent in their efforts to verify Jackie’s story and that the men suffered as a result of being associated with the gang-rape allegations.” Read more: http://abovethelaw.com/2015/08/3-lies-that-linger-even-after-rolling-stones-uva-rape-story-was-debunked/
Never forget that “Rolling Stone, hit by a storm of criticism and boycotts over its cover treatment and glam photo of Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, defended itself Wednesday, saying it was within its tradition of “serious and thoughtful coverage” of important cultural and political issues.” How culturally important could a mass murder and maiming of innocents gathered for a marathon race be? Was he so important to this aging mag to land the perpetrator on the “cover of the Rolling Stone”? http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/explaining-the-rolling-stone-cover-by-a-boston-native-20130719
And finally, remember the hit piece on General Stanley McCrystal……. The Rolling Stone profile of Stanley McChrystal that changed history, and destroyed his career. Read more at: http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/the-runaway-general-20100622
People, this is a liberal “hit mag” for ancient “hippies”. They are trying to remain relevant so they go over-board, they exaggerate and they intentionally misinterpret anything that will be useful in destroying Conservatives. So the information about Trump, follows the same formula as the McChrystal tome:
“According to writer Paul Solotaroff, he was sitting with Trump watching a newscast when a video clip zoomed in on Fiorina.
“Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that?” Trump said to Solotaroff. “Can you imagine that, the face of our next president.”
Trump added, “I mean, she’s a woman, and I’m not s’posedta say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?”
Solotaroff continued his cover story (headlined “Taking Trump Seriously”) by saying:
“And there, in a nutshell, is Trump’s blessing and his curse: He can’t seem to quit while he’s ahead. The instincts that carried him out to a lead and have kept him far above the captious field are the same ones that landed him in ugly stews with ex-wives, business partners, networks, supermodels and many, many other famous women.””
We all know that words can be twisted and preened to use in ways not intended. I hope that the candidates will do their homework regarding this old rag and realize that they could just as well get in the cross-hairs of this publication. REMEMBER, unless you want to believe everything that this paper says, believe NOTHING it says. It is about as credible as the story of Bat Boy but a lot less interesting…. Remember, Bat Boy is a creature who made several appearances in the defunct American supermarket tabloid Weekly World News. The Weekly World News published patently fabricated stories which were purported to be factual. Bat Boy was created by former Weekly World News Editor Dick Kulpa. He debuted as a cover story on June 23, 1992. The original front-page photo of Bat Boy, showing his grotesque screaming face, was the second-best selling issue in the tabloid’s history, and he has since evolved into a pop-culture icon.
