Time Magazine Stands by #FakeCover Story Featuring Crying Migrant Child Who Was Not Separated from Her Mother

I think this is probably the fakest of fake news stories I've ever seen.

The Washington Post has a huge rundown, "The crying Honduran girl on the cover of Time was not separated from her mother."
