Award-Winning Journalist Chuck C. Johnson Falls for Another Hoax
Stand back, folks, professional smear merchant Chuck C. Johnson is at it again with another HUGE BREAKING EXCLUSIVE story smearing Rolling Stone writer Sabrina Erdely, his latest target: BREAKING: #UVAHoax Journalist #SabrinaRubinErdely Had “Problem Boyfriends” in College - GotNews.
The mandatory screenshot:
Sabrina Rubin Erdely, the disgraced journalist at the center of the University of Virginia fake rape allegations, “had a steady stream of problem boyfriends” says her family according to the Daily Pennsylvanian.
A profile of Erdeley, then going by her maiden name of Rubin, ran in a past issue of the Daily Pennsylvanian where she was described as a hippy who tie-dyed her Underoos.
“Sabrina was always off beat, a hippie before her time,” her mother told the Daily Pennsylvanian.
“According to her little brother, they were all emotionally disturbed,” reported the student newspaper at the time in a possible parody issue.
One of them was very seriously depressed and wanted to join the army,” Sammy Rubin said. He shaved his legs; he was sadistic.”
Described by high school buddies as “free wheelin’ and free lovin’” other of Rubin’s eclectic beaux included really short guys and dudes with massive grimy afros.”
GotNews obtained a copy of the January 22, 1993 student newspaper from a source after offering a bounty for this information.
Erdely’s past relationships with men are the first indication of a motive for why she fabricated huge parts of the fake rape case involving fraudster Jackie Coakley.
Erdely did not return past requests for comment.
And you’re not gonna believe this, but Chuck has apparently fallen for another hoax! I know! What are the odds?
Check the byline of his big BREAKING exclusive:
“Roy G. Biv” is a well-known acronym for the sequence of colors in a rainbow, but it also happens to be a pseudonym often used by the Daily Pennsylvanian for joke articles in the paper’s entertainment section — which happens to be known as “34th Street.”
Here’s one of those joke pieces about “Roy:”
Yes, award-winning journalist Chuck C. Johnson has been taken in by another prankster. Oh no… I hope he didn’t pay too much for this scoop. That would be a shame.
While I was writing this article, Chuck added the following to his ludicrous post, apparently beginning to realize he screwed up again:
Note to David Weigel: Oh, and by the way, we have no idea if this issue is a parody or not. It’s probable that it is. I mean Roy G. Biv? Come on now.
But the fact that this was a joke shows us something.
