Newsweek Reporter Fired After Her Editor Allegedly Failed to Update Trump Story

Newsweek reporter Jessica Kwong has been fired over an “inaccurate” article she wrote that claimed President Trump would be spending the holiday “Tweeting, golfing and more.” The president’s plan to spend the holiday at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida with his family had become mainstream news before the holiday.

The original headline of Kwong’s article read “How is Trump spending Thanksgiving? Tweeting, golfing and more”, which Newsweek published the morning of Thanksgiving. However, on Thanksgiving Day, the president made a surprise trip to Afghanistan to spend the holiday with the troops, a trip that was not immediately made public for security reasons, according to the New York Post.
