Sean Woods, the man who directly edited the now discredited UVA rape story for Rolling Stone, recently offered his resignation to Rolling Stone owner Jann Wenner over his colossal failure to fact check the story that ripped apart a community. Wenner refused his resignation, but if he read Woods’ Twitter timeline he might have learned that Woods is far from an objective editor.
Woods proudly attacks people he disagrees with politically even calling former UN Ambassador John Bolton a “reactionary dipshit” and claimed that “He’s not even entertaining in his crypto-facisim[sic].”
Woods also labeled the movement to review the ethics of video game journalism known commonly as #Gamergate as “bananas” and questioned the “sanity” of those who thought the presidency of Barack Obama was not a triumph. He had a particular concern for gun control, quoting bogus school shooting statistics and celebrating Michael Bloomberg’s stance against the NRA.
Though Woods is, of course, free to offer his obviously deeply held opinions he clearly is not someone who should be “fact checking” politically explosive articles that have the potential to ruin people’s lives with false accusations.
Wenner should have accepted Sean Woods’ resignation.
Even Woods seems to agree.
