UVA Dean Eramo’s lawsuit has been of extraordinary value in bringing to light the flawed process through which the Rolling Stone article was produced. RS reporter Erdely comes across as closed-minded, having already decided on her thesis. Jackie, meanwhile, comes across as even more ideologically extreme than Erdely, and not terribly bright. The conversation gave a sense of Jackie’s extremist beliefs, her rather unappealing personality and if Erdely had been at all open-minded, her penchant for tall tales.
