While Newsweek wants to sound magnanimous for firing Jessica Kwong over her article suggesting that Trump would probably just play golf and tweet over Thanksgiving she claims that the editors asked her to pen the story a week in advance. Pity the poor angel for not having access to Trump’s itinerary ahead of flying into a hot zone. CM guesses if her Twitter following was 706,200 instead of 7,062 she would still have a job at Newsweek.
Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) is rife in the mainstream media. So pitiful was Newsweek’s lame apology that it stuffed it down the bottom of the revised article. Kwong was mere cannon fodder so the magazine would look like it was taking proper action.
Assuming she doesn’t suffer from TDS, maybe Fox News or a conservative media outlet can snap her up. She claimed it was an honest mistake and to repost her original tweet with a picture of Trump in Afghanistan was at the very least eating a slice of humble pie. For that, she probably has more credibility than the entire editorial staff at Newsweek combined.
