RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Rolling Stone magazine is apologizing and has officially retracted its discredited article about an alleged gang rape at the University of Virginia.

The magazine took the action Sunday night after receiving a report from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism calling the November 2014 story “A Rape on Campus” a “story of journalistic failure that was avoidable.”

Rolling Stone Managing Editor Will Dana issued an apology on the website and the author, Sabrina Rubin Erdely, issued a separate apology.The magazine’s publisher, Jann S. Wenner, however, told The New York Times that Erdely would continue to write for the magazine and that neither her editor nor Dana would be fired.
