Rolling Stone magazine recently retracted it’s expose on a sexual assault at a college campus. It seems their fact checking wasn’t up to standards, and after some scrutiny they retracted.
Brian Williams, a well known network talking head, is currently off air because of inconsistencies in his recounting of his time in a war zone.
When I hear mention of those two things in mainstream media, it always makes me think of Shannon Stoy and her libel factory, Blinkoncrime.com. The key difference being, S. Christina Stoy never retracts, never corrects, never adjusts. It is hilarious to me that a person who possibly aspires toward journalism would leave such obvious evidence of low integrity and journalistic aptitude laying around.
But there it is. Search her website and the internet and it’s plain as day : She has a blatant disregard for the truth. It made me laugh when I first started looking into her, after she smeared my name across the internet. She has published under several names. Shannon Stoy, S. Christina Stoy, Christina Stoy, Blink. As I read more and more accounts by people with stories like mine, I couldn’t help but get the feeling that she was running from her reputation.
Journalists retract and correct. Blink changes her name.
