The increasingly ridiculous Rolling Stone magazine just posted its no-longer secret article, “El Chapo Speaks: A secret visit with the most wanted man in the world,” as recounted by actor and director Sean Penn. The New York Times broke the news earlier Saturday evening that the notorious Mexican drug lord, Joaquín Guzmán Loera, who escaped from a Mexican prison through an elaborate underground tunnel, had sat for a 7-hour interview with Penn and hoped to have a movie made about his life.

The New York Times reports:
In the end, the Mexican authorities said Friday night that Mr. Guzmán had been caught partly because he had been planning a movie about his life, and had contacted actors and producers, which had helped the authorities to track him down. Mr. Penn’s story says that Mr. Guzmán, inundated with Hollywood offers while in prison, had indeed elected to make his own movie. Ms. [Kate] del Castillo, whom he contacted through his lawyer after she posted supportive messages on Twitter, was the only person he trusted to shepherd the project, according to the story. Mr. Penn heard about the connection with Ms. del Castillo through a mutual acquaintance, and asked if he might do an interview.
@nytimes This moron deserves to be prosecuted for meeting with a drug lord on the run.
