[old school GC]

I wonder if Haven participated in Dance Marathon or wore his hair in a mullet.

I don't feel at all sorry for this reporter. She was desperate to report news which confirmed her anti-fraternity bias. Simple as that. It should cost her a job and it will cost whoever Rolling Stone's insurance company is a pretty penny.

I haven't watched 20/20 in forever, but I randomly recorded the episode from last night. Tonight, I pressed the Info button to see what it was about, and it was this story.

They interviewed Jackie's friends (two of the three who were mentioned in the Rolling Stone article), which was pretty interesting. The one, Ryan, she wanted to date early freshman year, and they went out once, but he said they were better just being friends. The other guy friend (can't remember his name) said that Jackie was pretty upset about it, and it was weird for her to be THAT devastated over a two week crush. Then she started dating this "Haven" and was quick to tell her friends about him.

They said from the very beginning, she was an elaborate storyteller.

What I posted here pretty much tells the story.

After the RS story broke, a more local reporter, simply curious as to why RS was initially reporting on the story, looked further into it. He started by interviewing Jackie and then went to her three friends; they were more than happy to speak. Initially, Rolling Stone also wanted to interview her three friends, but Jackie answered for them and claimed they weren't willing to be interviewed. A lie, of course.

According to Ryan, Jackie had asked him to vet Haven and gave Ryan his phone number. Haven mentioned that Jackie liked "some first year guy," clearly describing him. Ryan became suspicious, searched the student directory for Haven Monahan, and he found no results. Later they determined that the Haven texts were coming from Jackie herself.

Ryan said that Jackie would do anything to get his attention, and as mentioned in the article above, she even went so far as to say she had a terminal illness and she was dying. She told Ryan that her will was on copy at Student Health.

In addition to all of this insanity, it was suggested that her story was concocted using a rape that actually happened at that fraternity in 1984 (which I believe was mentioned in the Rolling Stone story) and possibly from an episode of Law & Order SVU. I actually knew the episode they were referencing - a gang rape occurred at a fraternity house and one of the guys says, "Grab her legs." In addition, they mentioned a love letter about Ryan where Jackie pulled exact quotes from an episode of Dawson's Creek.

It's just so unbelievable. And as Ryan said, it's crazy to think that this whole debacle could have been prevented if that Rolling Stone writer just went to Jackie's three friends and talked to them about it, rather than taking Jackie's word for it and assuming they would be uncooperative.
