Newsweek Reporter Fired for Thanksgiving Fake News

A Newsweek reporter has been fired after spreading heinous fake news on Thanksgiving Day, claiming that President Donald Trump had chosen to spend the holiday “tweeting and golfing-” while he was actually making a surprise visit to troops stationed in Afghanistan.

Jessica Kwong made the claim in a tweet sent from her account at around noon on Thursday.

Curiously, the tweet included a link to an article that accurately described the President’s surprise visit to Afghanistan. It seems that Kwong simply assumed that Trump would spend his Thanksgiving Day “tweeting and golfing” beforehand, preparing the tweet without any real research or verification into how the Thanksgiving holiday would actually be celebrated by the President.

Kwong was sharply ratioed on Twitter for her fake news, and was forced to go on and delete the tweet.

Prominent conservatives such as Donald Trump Jr. fired back to rebuke the dishonest reporter for her heinous fake news. Kwong doesn’t appear to have issued a full-fledged apology, instead merely deleting the tweet and proceeding as if her mistake only required a minor correction.

The Washington Examiner reached out to Newsweek seeking clarification in the wake of Kwong’s fake reporting, and the legacy mainstream media outlet announced that they had fired Kwong.

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.

Kwong is yet to tweet again since being fired from Newsweek and being rebuked for fake news. The outlet seems content to throw her under the bus and ignore fundamental underlying fake news problems prevalent within its reporting, but its credibility remains deeply tarnished.

AG Bill Barr Calls Out Mainstream Media for Hydroxychloroquine ‘Jihad’

The media is furious that Trump suggested use of the drug.

Published

Attorney General Bill Barr expressed his disappointment with the mainstream media’s coverage of the coronavirus epidemic when speaking to Fox News’ Laura Ingraham on Wednesday, pointing to what he called a ‘jihad’ on the media’s part over the President’s suggestion of hydroxychloroquine being used to treat the disease.

It’s very disappointing because I think the president went out at the beginning of [the coronavirus pandemic] and really was statesmanlike, trying to bring people together, working with all the governors,” said Barr of the federal government’s coronavirus response. “Keeping his patience as he as he got these snarky, gotcha questions from the White House media pool and the stridency of the partisan attacks on him has gotten higher and higher.”

The media has pushed hysterical claims of medical malpractice against President Trump for suggesting that hydroxychloroquine could prove useful in treating the disease- a claim backed up by many prominent figures in the medical and scientific community, some of whom recount using the drug to great effectiveness in treating coronavirus patients.

The media has been on a jihad to discredit the drug. It’s quite strange.

Barr totally ruled out the notion of issuing government certificates certifying citizens as coronavirus-free, an idea increasingly favored by liberal globalists and enacted to some extent in Germany.

The Attorney General also lamented the economic costs of the virus in America, reiterating President Trump’s desire that the cost not be worse than the disease. “We cannot keep for a long period of time our economy shut down just on the public health thing… So we have to find after the 30-day period, we have to find a way of allowing businesses to adapt to this situation and figure out how they can best get started.”

Barr’s remarks may suggest the federal government may be increasingly willing to consider working to roll back the disruptions to everyday life by the end of April.

I’m not suggesting we stop social distancing overnight… There may come a time where we have to worry less about that. I don’t know when that will be.
