The journalist whose Rolling Stone article about a rape at the University of Virginia was debunked is expected to publicly apologize for her reporting, CNN reported Sunday.

Sabrina Rubin Erdely has not spoken publicly since December when her story, “A Rape on Campus,” was retracted by the magazine.
