TOM MAGUIRE NOTES SOME RATHER DRAMATIC REVISIONS to the WaPo story on the Rolling Stone rape debacle. These changes don’t make Rolling Stone look any better, but suggest that there may be something in there somewhere. Maybe.

UPDATE: Readers note that the changes are also consistent with a liar who keeps changing the story to make it more dramatic. True.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Rolling Stone Quietly Changes Its Rape Story Apology. “A note that initially said the magazine “misplaced” its trust in an alleged gang rape victim was edited Saturday to say the ‘mistakes are on Rolling Stone.'”

When contemplating a libel defense, you don’t want to be crossways with your only source.
