There's no defense for that article. RS employed very few, if any, journalistic standards. That does not, however, put them in the same class as the bugnuts who fabricate fake news. These stories aren't just poorly reported accounts.

Alright JC... But still knowing what RS did and how it's been so, so recently in the news - - why should Bam interview at Rolling Stone?

Not poorly reported account but a reported account of a completely fabricated incident, to me that's worse than the usual clickbait.

It looks to be the same to me IF rolling stone has had a history of doing this kind of thing. one fake story shouldn't paint the whole institution should it? the intent seems to be somewhat different.

Just think Bam should have been wiser about who interviewed him, not a publication that just got its áss handed to it in court. And it's not even over for RS either. The frat is suing.

I sort of doubt RS had some sort of exclusive interview...It's just one of many venues. Throughout his terms in office, Obama has communicated via venues of all sorts. He has said that he feels it is an effective way to communicate with the public.

I'd say "just pop culture" if Rolling Stone sought to present themselves that way but they've clearly had a lot of aspirations for more. Failed miserably, but they do see themselves as more than a music mag.

Things are far, far worse this election cycle with the fake news, in my opinion anyway. As to racism, well Obama truly inspired the black vote. Hillary, not so much. That's a large voting bloc.

Barack got a good amount of "white vote" in those rust belt states that went to Trump this election. Democratic party hemorrhaged support from those areas gradually over 8 years. And now ya got Schumer and Pelosi leading.. New York and San Fran..?

So, I think you've answered your own question as to racism. As to fake news, you asked how Obama could be elected. Well...someone has to be elected, assuming fake news is applied to all candidates, so maybe that answers your question.
