Chuck Ross reports at the Daily Caller:
Rolling Stone has settled a lawsuit with the University of Virginia fraternity whose members were falsely accused of raping a female student in a Nov. 2014 article, The Daily Caller has learned.What is to be remembered about Rolling Stone‘s bogus story is that it was published in November 2014 as part of a widespread political propaganda campaign about a “rape culture” that feminists claimed was pandemic on U.S. university campuses. This “rape culture” hysteria began with the Obama administration, which appointed a White House Task Force to hype the fear crusade, generating a climate of sexual paranoia among young women in order to mobilize them as feminist foot soldiers in Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.
A source involved at the national level with the fraternity, Phi Kappa Psi, tells TheDC that Rolling Stone will pay $1.65 million to settle the defamation suit.
The magazine’s decision follows a settlement in April with Nicole Eramo, a University of Virginia associate dean who was also smeared in the article, which was written by Sabrina Rubin Erdely.
In the piece, “A Rape on Campus,” Erdely relayed the story of Jackie Coakley, a Virginia woman who claimed she was brutally raped by a group of Phi Kappa Psi fraternity members during a party in Sept. 2012.
Just like Jackie Coakley’s fictitious “Haven Monahan,” feminist claims of a “campus rape epidemic” were a lie from start to finish, including the easily disproven “1-in-5” statistic which was repeated by both President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, among many other Democrats. This was a partisan enterprise — promoted with the goal of electing Clinton — which resulted not only the defamation of innocents, but which also deprived accused students of their due-process rights.
