Rolling Stone magazine, which used to be about music but is now about pushing Cultural Marxism for the Democrat Party, made up a fake news story so lacking in journalistic integrity that they were sued for defamation and lost, having to fork over a whopping $7.5 million for inventing a phony story about college campus rape that didn’t occur.
It was worth it for Rolling Stone to make up stories because it pushed the phony Democrat Party narrative that all men are evil and that there is a “war on women” with an election right around the corner.
It was the truth be damned and there’s nothing more fake news than making up fake news, right?
Nevertheless, America’s first Marxist president, Barack Obama, had the audacity to grant an interview to a fake news site, Rolling Stone, to complain about…fake news. It really doesn’t get any richer than this. I mean, it’s almost like the bogus “hands up don’t shoot” which never happened in the shooting of criminal Michael Brown which launched the Black Lives Matter terrorist organization. Who cares if it didn’t happen, right?
Obama actually had the gall to talk about “facts” to a publication not concerned about facts. It’s unreal.
“Well, the most important thing that I’m focused on is how we create a common set of facts,” he told Rolling Stone’s Jann Wenner. “The biggest challenge that I think we have right now in terms of this divide is that the country receives information from completely different sources.”
Worse yet, Obama went on to applaud Rolling Stone for their “great work.”
“Good journalism continues to this day. There’s great work done in Rolling Stone. The challenge is people are getting a hundred different visions of the world from a hundred different outlets or a thousand different outlets, and that is ramping up divisions. It’s making people exaggerate or say what’s most controversial or peddling in the most vicious of insults or lies because that attracts eyeballs. And if we are gonna solve that, it’s not going to be simply an issue of subsidizing or propping up traditional media; it’s going to be figuring out how do we organize in a virtual world the same way we organize in the physical world. We have to come up with new models.”
Obama also hilariously used the interview to blame his failures on the only network who doesn’t bend over forward to kiss his posterior — FOX News — claiming that FOX News plays in “every bar and restaurant in big chunks of the country.”
He must not get out much. I’ve been to a lot of bars in my years and I’ve yet to see FOX News playing in any of them. But nevermind, it is an interview with Fake News.
But then again, like most progressive leftists who fail to take personal responsibility for anything, Obama is desperately trying to cover up the literal wrecking ball he has taken to the Democrat Party since taking office in 2009.
You really can’t make this stuff up. And Obama and the Democrats wonder why they are losing, drifting into a coastal party of elitist snobs. Obama granting an interview to a fake news site in a deceptive attempt to give it legitimacy and reward it for carrying the water for his massively failed presidency is beyond repugnant.
