Thinking (and blogging) about the Rolling Stone debacle

Please write a 200- to 300-word blog post in the form of a memo to Jann Wenner, publisher of Rolling Stone. It might be hard to contain your thoughts, so if you go over a little bit, that’s all right.

Imagine you are an outside consultant who’s been brought in to give Wenner advice on how to prevent something like the flawed UVA rape story from being published in the future. What are your recommendations? Be as far-ranging as you like. You could recommend anything from changes in reporting and editing techniques to personnel changes.

Make sure your post is up before class on Wednesday.
