Newsweek needs to shut down its 'Fact-checking' Operation

Newsweek magazine, which just over a decade ago sold for $1 and the assumption of tens of millions of dollars in liabilities, has a fact-checking operation. They should shut it down.

[email protected] said @JoeBiden "wants to ban handguns."
