Rolling Stone Strikes Another Blow to 'War on Women' Agenda

On Friday, Rolling Stone Magazine had to admit that a rape story they created was a complete farce.  They created a major story titled "A Rape on Campus," which detailed a young freshman's depressing account of being gang-raped.  Right from the start, many online questioned the story.  It was believed that Rolling Stone had an agenda, regardless of the facts.

Sexual assault exists.  Rape exists.  The psychological effects that a rape victim experiences makes Rolling Stone's sex-bating fake story all more incomprehensible.  But this is just the latest blow from a magazine that hasn't been relevant for almost twenty years.

The downfall of the magazine really started when music critic Jim DeRogatis revealed he was fired from there after giving a new Hootie and the Blowfish album a bad review in 1996.  The magazine replaced the review with a more positive one.  In the end, "Fairweather Johnson" turned the band into a joke, and DeRogatis went on to a successful career.  However, Rolling Stone continued to go downhill.

In the following years, the once relevant magazine was accused of taking payments to give certain albums good reviews, even though this has never been proven.  But when the magazine gave Bruce Springsteen's critically panned "Working on a Dream" a 5-star review in 2009, even dedicated readers began to question the magazine’s reliability.  It's important to note that this past September, they also gave U2's worldwide mega-flop "Song's of Innocence" five stars.  This came about a year after they put Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on their cover, making him look like a rock star.

Rolling Stone has degraded itself.  But it has also degraded the "War on Women" agenda, which the left uses to smear Republicans.  Certainly, some of that agenda is legit, even if much of the agenda against women has been created by the left.  Just look at all the slut-shaming and body-shaming we see on a daily basis from many liberal websites, including Jezebel.  Look how Monica Lewinsky was treated by the left after her sexual encounters were revealed.  They called her a slut and a whore but found nothing wrong with the man who took advantage of her, Bill Clinton.

Liberal outlets such as Rolling Stone could certainly find legit reasons women are being discriminated against.  Instead, they have to invent things like false rape stories, while hypocritically shaming women for their age, body shape, or sex life.  It’s quite an insult to women who are truly being discriminated against.
