President Obama was interviewed recently by Rolling Stone co-founder and publisher Jann Wenner. Among Obama’s gems was blaming Dem losses partly on the availability of Fox News in bars:

Obama to Rolling Stone on Dems failing to win working class: Part of it is Fox News in every bar and restaurant in big chunks of the country

If only Fox News wasn't playing in every bar around the country, ISIS would still be the JV Team and Global Warming would be fixed…

And if that wasn’t funny enough, Obama continued his call for the creation of some sort of entity to serve as curators of news truth, and used the magazine that was interviewing him as an example of “good journalism”:
The New York Times is still making money. NPR is doing well. Yeah, it’s a nonprofit, but it has a growing audience. The problem is segmentation. We were talking about the issue of a divided country. 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.
Bizarro World. Obama complaining to Rolling Stone about fake news. RS about to pay $7M settlement for publishing fake news.
