Sean Penn: Citizen Journalist

By now you have heard about that interview of El Chapo by Sean Penn. Notwithstanding that it led to the subsequent recapture of the fugitive drug smuggler, it was talked about quite a bit in the news for its rambling, incoherent style. Now, anyone can be a journalist, especially in this internet age we are in, so we aren't faulting Penn for having conducted the interview... What concerns us is that it doesn't appear to have been edited, and it was published in Rolling Stone, which is a tenured publication that presumably should have known better. How did this happen?
