Fake News? Just Ask Rolling Stone

Really, folks, I can't make this crap up.
The man responsible for publishing one of the greatest media hoaxes in recent memory thinks it might be a good idea if the government provided the press with subsidies to help it fight fake news.
Yeah, seriously.  The founder and publisher of Rolling Stone magazine wants the government to help fight fake news.  Rolling Stone, of course, is the rag that published the most famous fake news story of the Obama era.  The "Jackie" rape story about the University of Virginia.  The story was proven to be totally false, and Rolling Stone recently lost a huge libel suit over the story.  Fake news from start to finish.

Now,  the publisher of this thoroughly discredited magazine wants help fighting fake news?  If Rolling Stone magazine would shut it's doors, fire its staff and sell its press, that would do more to improve journalistic integrity than any subsidy would.
