Rolling Stone publishes article and doesn’t cite sources

Rolling Stone has never been the epitome of journalism.  As a journalism student it was always everyone’s dream to intern there because we new just how much pot they smoke in a day.  So it comes as no surprise that a recent hit piece on (shocker) Michele Bachmann the Stone stole research from another journalist and didn’t give him credit.

I remember learning MLA in the seventh grade.  If these stoners can’t get this right they will be the laughing stock of the entire tabloid community.  And when other tabloids are questioning your journalistic integrity you’ve hit OJ territory.
