How long has this been the case. Rolling Stone has had some of my favorite articles. I remember the article they had on Kevin Mitnick in the 90s was really well-researched and written. I'd come to expect quality writing from them, but this article appears to have some red flags. Not least of which is the source of most of the information. Arguably someone with an axe to grind.My thoughts too, and entirely expected given how Rolling Stone has zero journalistic credibility these days.
