Newsweek has just fired the reporter responsible for an inaccurate totally fake “news” story about President Trump “tweeting and golfing” on Thanksgiving – when, he was really in Afghanistan visiting our troops!
The article written by journalist Jessica Kwong was titled How is Trump Spending Thanksgiving? Tweeting, Golfing, and More sparked a wave of deserved backlash, prompting Newsweek to add a redaction and change the headline to How Did Trump Spend Thanksgiving? Tweeting, Golfing–and Surprising U.S. Troops in Afghanistan.
On Friday, the news outlet also stated that they had fired the journalist, announcing,
Newsweek investigated the failures that led to the publication of the inaccurate report that President Trump spent Thanksgiving tweeting and golfing rather than visiting troops in Afghanistan. The story has been corrected and the journalist responsible has been terminated. We will continue to review our processes and, if required, take further action.
