Rolling Stone Emulates the Government

Nobody is going to get fired at Rolling Stone. Apparently, there is no degree of incompetence sufficient to lose one's job at that rag.
Now you would think after a scandal of this magnitude that heads would roll. But that’s not the case at all. It's business as usual at Rolling Stone. Managing Editor Will Dana is quoted in the report as saying, "It's not like I think we need to overhaul our process, and I don't think we need to necessarily institute a lot of new ways of doing things." 
The New York Times reports Sabrina Erdely, who wrote the story, will continue writing for the magazine. Miss Erdely penned an apology – sort of an “oopsie, my bad” - but failed to mention the men of Phi Kappa Psi. The fraternity's good name has been smeared, their reputations ruined by and act of journalistic malpractice.
If, for some reason, you ever read it again (which assumes you have read it semi-recently; I haven't in the past 30+ years), keep that fact in mind -- the writers and editors care not at all about accuracy and are not expected by the management to care.
