    President Obama says he wasnt all that surprised by Donald Trumps upset victory in the presidential election. So I think the odds of Donald Trump winning were always around 20 percent, Obama said in a Rolling Stone interview published Tuesday. That [doesn't] seem like a lot, but one out of five is not that unusual. It's not a miracle." Obama spoke to the magazines publisher, Jann Wenner, the day after Election Day, when the level of shock at the White House seemed very high. Dozens of stunned staffers, many of whom had tears in their eyes, stood in the Rose...

    NewsBusters ^ | November 24, 2016 | P.J. Gladnick
    Rolling Stone has a new article about how "sex workers" are supposedly so outraged about the election of Donald Trump thatthey are now actively working to oppose him. Is that for real? The magazine hasn't exactly had a very good track record on sex related stories after that discredited article about a certain rape on campus has proven. However, even if the article by Mary Emily O'Harais not true, I have to give her credit for fictitious comedy writing starting with a social worker named Erin who moonlights as an "escort." The extent of Erin's political opposition to Trump builds...

    Days after Rolling Stone magazine published a shocking 9,000-word story about a brutal gang rape at the University of Virginia in November 2014, the magazines editors received an email just before 2 a.m. with Our worst nightmare in the subject line. They needed to run a retraction, the reporter said. Instead, Rolling Stone kept the article on its website for four months before finally pulling it down that April and officially retracting the story. That decision was enough to convince a federal jury in Charlottesville on Friday that the magazine defamed a university administrator, who claimed she was cast as...

  • Hear U-Va.s Jackie testify about Rolling Stones gang rape story

    When Rolling Stone published a brutal account of a fraternity gang-rape at the University of Virginia, the magazine relied on the recollections of the young woman who said she was assaulted. Quoted by the nickname Jackie, the tale of her assault was used to exemplify the prevalence of sexual assault on college campuses and was the crux of an argument that university administrators who handle such claims can be indifferent to them. Jackie told Rolling Stone in explicit detail aspects of the night she described as the worst in her life: Sept. 28, 2012, when she said she was assaulted...

Both have been left distraught. And the UVA says there's just not enough evidence to do anything about it, The Washington Post reported.

Rolling Stone's Tim Dickinson does not consider any of those bloodthirsty outfits “the greatest threat to our homeland security today.” That description, Dickinson argues, best fits the National Rifle Association. “The NRA's unhinged gun advocacy,” he wrote in a Wednesday article, “has created a soft underbelly to our homeland security that radicals are exploiting to inflict mass murder.” Dickinson declared, “Make no mistake: The NRA paved the way for the Orlando attack,” given that -- “ The NRA's lobbyists and political...

I am very disappointed in the country. I think that hes sort of the last stand of a sort of American male who feels like...

    RUSH: I'm looking at this Trump campaign. You know, every day, the Trump campaign... What's the way to put this? Every day the Trump campaign gains a little more substance in the eyes of observers. What I mean by this is before Trump even got in the race, the smart money said, "He's not gonna run. He's just gonna tempt people with it and tease people, raise ratings for his TV show and this sort of thing. He'll never release his financial data on that form they all have to fill out." Then he did all that. Then it became,...

    More has changed in the past few years for women who allege rape than in all the decades since the women's movement began. Consider the evidence of October 2014, when a Philadelphia magazine reporter at a Hannibal Buress show uploaded a clip of the comedian talking about Bill Cosby: "He gets on TV, 'Pull your pants up, black people ... I can talk down to you because I had a successful sitcom.' Yeah, but you rape women, Bill Cosby, so turn the crazy down a couple notches ... I guess I want to just at least make it weird for...

    Ryan Duffin was a freshman at the University of Virginia when he met a student named Jackie. Both teenagers were new to campus in September 2012, and the pair quickly became friends through a shared appreciation of alternative rock bands such as Coheed and Cambria and Silversun Pickups. Early on, Duffin sensed that Jackie was interested in pursuing a romantic relationship with him. Duffin valued her friendship but politely rebuffed Jackie’s advances for more. Just days after he met her, Duffin said, he was goaded into a text message conversation with a U-Va. junior named “Haven Monahan,” whom Jackie said...

    Mexican authorities want to speak with U.S. actor Sean Penn and Latin television star Kate del Castillo, a Mexican law enforcement official told NBC News Sunday. The revelation came a day after Rolling Stone published a secret interview that Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman apparently gave to Penn while on the run. The official also said that investigators were able to learn details about Guzman's whereabouts by intercepting phone conversations between Penn, Del Castillo and the drug lord.

    Well I didn’t win the Powerball drawing last night. And apparently you didn’t either. With no winners in Saturday night's record $949.8 million Powerball jackpot, the next jackpot could reach an estimated $1.3 billion, lottery officials said early Sunday. What would you do if you won $1.3 billion? And since we’re playing make believe, let’s pretend that you don’t have to first give half your winnings to the IRS. I’d buy new appliances and spend the rest buying the 2016 American presidential election. At least I think $1.3 billion would be enough to Make America Great Again (MAGA).Alternatively, if it...

    It sounds like Sean Penn has given up guns for good. It was at his annual pre-Golden Globes gala for J/P HRO that he revealed that girlfriend Charlize Theron convinced him to have his collection of nearly 65 firearms turned into a sculpture by artist Jeff Koons and then auctioned off for the Haiti relief organization. Penn told me at this year's benefit on Saturday night that he's not missing the weapons. "I think guns are not something to be missed," he said.
