Here's Wenner's statement, via the Huffington Post's Michael Calderone:

The story, written by Sabrina Rubin Erdely, began to unravel after other news outlets began to raise questions about Erdely's reporting process.

Once the Washington Post's own reporting revealed inconsistencies in the account of the alleged rape victim, a UVA student named Jackie, Rolling Stone managing editor Will Dana published an editor's note stating its trust in Jackie was "misplaced." He later clarified that the piece's "failure" lay with the magazine itself, after many accused Rolling Stone of blaming the victim.
