Inside the Newsroom: Rolling Stone backs off, New York stands up

Augusta Free Press editors Crystal Graham and Chris Graham dive into two major news stories in this edition of Inside the Newsroom.

Rolling Stone is backing away from its recent controversial story alleging that UVA administrators are covering up a culture of rape on Grounds. What are the repercussions on UVA, Rolling Stone and the efforts to bring attention to sexual assaults as a way of combatting the problem? AFP tries to give some answers on all three.

The focus then shifts to the mass protests that have arisen in cities across the country in the wake of two grand jury decisions against indicting cops in separate cases accused of killing unarmed petty crime suspects. What is at the heart of the protests, and is America about to undergo another civil rights movement?
