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.

New Lawsuit from Covington Catholic Students Levels Defamation Case Against Hoax Hatemongers
Twelve students are suing a list of media liberals.
Weeks after their classmate Nicholas Sandmann achieved victory in a lawsuit against CNN for the network’s role in broadcasting a defamatory narrative against him, a group of Covington Catholic students are launching new lawsuits against a list of media liberals who dishonestly attacked the students over the infamous incident at the Lincoln Memorial in 2019.
Twelve students of the Kentucky school are filing a collective lawsuit against a list of prominent media liberals who jumped on a bandwagon to defame them in January 2019. Some well-known blue checkmark media personalities are being sued, such as:
-Reza Aslan(who despicably threatened Sandmann with violence after the incident)
Judging from Sandmann’s handsome settlement with CNN, the group of Covington Catholic students may have a good chance of securing a favorable judgement in their lawsuit. The case was filed in the Kenton County Circuit Court on Tuesday.
In the court filing, the students state they were subjected to “public denunciations, calls for public harassment and public demands of school expulsion.” It appears as if at least some of the students were accompanying Sandmann when he engaged in an infamous confrontation with Nathan Philips, who approached the group and loudly utilized a drum as Sandmann stood cooly and calmly by.
One year removed from the hoax, the narrative orchestrated by the mainstream media appears to be thoroughly debunked, judging from the success of Sandmann’s lawsuit. One can only hope that the unfortunate incident serves as a warning to those who wish to organize lightning-speed outrage mobs on false pretenses.
