Rolling Stone magazine retracted its article about a brutal gang rape at a University of Virginia fraternity after the release of a report on Sunday that concluded the widely discredited piece was the result of failures at every stage of the process.
In light of this development, Rolling Stone publisher Jann Wenner announced that his editors will take a look at recent articles the magazine has published in order to verify their veracity. Those pieces include "ISIS Shmisis", "The Boston Bombing: Eh, Not So Bad If You Really Think About It", and "America's Greatest Love Story: Inside the Clinton Marriage."

John Oliver, the host of HBO's Last Week Tonight, surprised viewers and journalists alike by airing what was probably the most hard-hitting interview with Edward Snowden ever conducted.
When asked how Oliver managed to score the kind of journalistic coup most reporters can only dream of, Matt Lauer said, "Oliver has an advantage over us. He's a comedian pretending to be a journalist. We, on the other hand, are hacks, human Barbie dolls, and political suck-ups who don't want to do anything remotely serious that would cause us to jeopardize our ten million-dollar salaries. How are we expected to compete with him?"
