Journalist Sabrina Rubin Erdley admitted on camera that she “shopped around” for victims on “women’s rights,” Gotnews.com has learned.
“Do you ever kind of really want to expose a situation or topic and then kind of like shop around for a more concrete story that would be better for you to write?” a student asked.
“Yes, I absolutely do. I’m working on one right now where that’s the case,” Erdley replied. “That’s something I’ve done a lot when I’ve written for women’s magazines where I’ve written a lot about women’s health and women’s rights.”
The speech took place on her alma mater, the University of Pennsylvania, in October 2012.
We don’t know if she was talking about University of Virginia student Jackie Coakley who claimed she was gang raped in 2012 but Erdely may have been looking for her.
