Newsweek reporter fired after ‘inaccurate’ story about Trump’s Thanksgiving schedule

Newsweek said Saturday that the magazine had fired a writer assigned to cover President Trump and his family after the reporter wrote an article about the president’s Thanksgiving plans that did not initially include his trip to Afghanistan to meet with U.S. service members.

The magazine told the Washington Examiner in a statement that reporter Jessica Kwong was fired after the magazine’s editors 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.”

…Newsweek’s spokesperson did not immediately return a request for comment from The Hill on Kwong’s assertion that an editor had failed to update her article.
