That Time Newsweek Pretended to Have Journalistic Ethics

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[Note: Today’s Campaign Update will be on a delayed morning schedule from November 30 through  December 4.]

Wow. Newsweek is pretending to be all journalist-y and stuff now. – As reported here at the Campaign Update on Friday, a fake reporter for the on-life-support fake magazine Newsweek named Jessica Kwong beclowned herself and her corrupt editors by putting out a Thanksgiving morning piece in which she claimed President Trump planned to spend his day “Tweeting, golfing and more.”

But just hours later it was revealed that the President in fact made a secret flight to Afghanistan to spend the day with the U.S. military personnel at Bagram Air Force base. In response to that revelation, Kwong sheepishly issued a tweet in which she claimed to have made “an honest mistake.” Now, we all know that’s a lot of stuff and nonsense – or as Joe Biden would call it, “a bunch of malarky” – because it was obviously an effort by Ms. Kwong to damage the President’s reputation based on false assumptions about his character, something Newsweek and the rest of the corrupt news media outlets do every day.

In response to Kwong’s self-immolation, President Trump himself issued this hilarious tweet:

If this were CNN or the New York Times, you’d normally expect Ms. Kwong to be elevated to an editor’s job or maybe even the editorial board itself for engaging in such shameful hackery and self-humiliation. After all, Paul Krugman and Brian Stelter still thrive despite their serial clownish hackery. But apparently the public outcry towards Newsweek was enough to force the miserable cretins who run that operation to pretend to have suddenly developed a set of journalistic efforts, given that they fired Ms. Kwong on Saturday.

In announcing the firing, Newsweek issued the following laughable statement:

So, Ms. Kwong is long gone, but Newsweek will struggle on, hoping you will think they have all these, like, “processes” and stuff in place, or something, to prevent it all from happening over and over and over again in the future. Because journalism!

No one should feel sorry for Ms. Kwong. We will no doubt find out in the coming week that she has landed herself a job at some other fake, corrupt news outlet, because the Democrat/media/deep state Axis of Disinformation always rewards its loyal foot soldiers. Newsweek did what it did strictly for reasons of self-preservation, but that doesn’t mean anyone at, say, Politico or Time will have to act accordingly.

Or hey, maybe she’ll grab a job at Bloomberg, a “news” operation so corrupt that it unashamedly brags about the fact that it refuses to investigate any of the myriad Democrat presidential candidates, focusing all of its efforts on President Trump. That seems like an outfit where a clown-suited hack like Jessica Kwong will fit right in.

That is all.

The New York Times and Newsweek Deliver Thanksgiving Disgraces

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[Note: Today’s Campaign Update will be on a delayed morning schedule from November 30 through  December 4.]

Ok, so, what else would we expect from the New York Times, right? Right. Still, the headline that ran with an op/ed piece by the corrupt newspaper’s inept economist, Paul Krugman, betrayed a desperate effort to plumb new depths of journalistic malfeasance by the newspaper of fake record:

I couldn’t tell you what Krugman says in his latest bit of lame-brainery because it’s behind the Times’s firewall, and we here at Today’s Campaign Update are not in the habit of lending monetary support to the faking of America’s news. But let’s be honest: Nothing Krugman has to say is worth noting anyway. After all, he’s the circus clown who predicted that the election of Donald Trump to the presidency would bring about the total collapse of the U.S. economy, a collapse from which America would “never recover.”

D’oh!

It’s fair to note that Krugman and the Times were not the only corrupt fake journalist/fake news outlet to disgrace themselves on Thanksgiving. Jessica Kwong, a fake reporter for the on-life-support Newsweek – which no longer can afford to exist as a real magazine but still fakes the news in the digital space – issued a tweet early on Thanksgiving that said:

But later in the day, news broke that President Trump had in fact flown out to Afghanistan in the wee hours of the morning to make a surprise visit and spend Thanksgiving with U.S. military personnel at Bagram Air Field. There he not only dined with the troops, he actually served them their dinner, laughed and joked with them and just generally enjoyed a rare chance to be with real Americans and the troops he loves and supports:

 

This early afternoon revelation led to the fake, corrupt journalist Kwong issuing this “correction”:

An “honest mistake.” Yeah, sure, right, uh-huh. That’s an interesting way to describe going to press with a completely false story with zero sourcing or journalistic process in just another corrupt effort to do harm to the President’s reputation. In today’s 100% dishonest, corrupt media, there is no such thing as an “honest mistake.”

Kwong’s humiliation led to the creation of this sterling Twitter meme:

To be honest, I don’t remember a time during my 60+ years on earth when Newsweek was a reputable news source, but I suppose it might have been the case before I was born. In any event, it and the New York Times have certainly surrendered all pretense over the last four years.

That is all.
