Writing for Rolling Stone? Make up your own factoids

  More and more it appears that  the most  outrageous stories in the troubled Andrew Lohse's story "Confessions of an Ivy League Frat Boy''  (about Dartmouth College) were  fabricated. It was published in Rolling Stone because that magazine wanted another sensationalist story (like its recent UVA rape story) and ignored all traditional journalistic  rules of fact-checking, talking to all sides of the story, seeking corroboration, etc., etc.

In Rolling Stone, writers just make up  stuff with impunity.

It's increasingly difficult to believe anything in that mag.
