Newsweek Fires Reporter Over “Inaccurate” Story After Trumps Complain

Newsweek has fired a reporter and says it's demoted an unnamed editor over "the failures that led to the publication of an inaccurate report" speculating about President Trump's Thanksgiving plans—prior to those plans being made public on Thursday afternoon. Shortly after 10 a.m. ET on Thursday morning, Newsweek published a story by Jessica Kwong—a reporter at the magazine since 2017—with the headline, "How is Trump Spending Thanksgiving? Tweeting, Golfing and More." "As with any other day of the year, Trump will probably be tweeting, or expressing his opinions in another way," Kwong's article originally predicted. While purely speculative, the article wasn't specifically inaccurate at the time it was published, especially as far as articles purporting to forecast the future go. Trump did spend much of Wednesday tweeting and golfing at his Mar-a-Lago resort, and he took to both pastimes again on Friday. Four hours after Kwong's article went live on Thursday morning, however, it was revealed that the President had taken a surprise trip to visit U.S. troops stationed in Afghanistan, a move kept highly secret in advance, in accordance with security measures. By 2:40 p.m., some 30 minutes after the trip was first revealed by reporters accompanying the President on Air Force One, Newsweek published a new article covering the surprise visit, by a different reporter, James Crowley. But it wasn't until 6:17 p.m. that Kwong's earlier article was updated with a new headline and a... Continue reading at 'Folio Magazine'
