Letters to the Editor
ISSUE | FRAT CASE Getting it wrong hurts real victims Michael Smerconish was far too focused on the immediate and localized effect of the misreporting and misrepresentation in the now-discredited Rolling Stone account of a fraternity rape ("Red flags on piece were there," April 12).
