‘The Five’ reacts to reporter getting fired for false Trump story


AFGHANISTAN. THAT REPORTER HAS APOLOGIZED AND IS INSISTING THAT HER EDITORS TOLD HER TO WRITE THAT ARTICLE. “NEWSWEEK,” CONFIRMING THAT A SECOND EMPLOYEE HAS BEEN PENALIZED. AN UNNAMED EDITOR HAS BEEN DEMOTED.>>Dana: FIRST OF ALL, THE EDITOR, I DON’T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED. TWITTER IS NOT GOOD FOR — IT DOESN’T ENHANCE ANYBODY. IT’S KIND OF FUN. YOU CAN KEEP UP WITH THE NEWS ON IT. I WOULD TEND TO BELIEVE HER. THAT’S WHAT “NEWSWEEK” IS ALL ABOUT RIGHT NOW. NOW, YOU ARE HEADING INTO A HOLIDAY SEASON. VICE PRESIDENT PENCE WENT TO IRAQ. THIS WHITE HOUSE IS SO GOOD ABOUT KEEPING IT A SECRET. NOBODY KNEW. SHE COULD HAVE SAID, YOU NEVER KNOW. STAY TUNED. WE’LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS. BUT THE SECOND PERSON WHO IS FIRED GETS TO BE UNNAMED? I THINK THAT’S WRONG.>>Katie: YET. THE DAY BEFORE THANKSGIVING, THE WHITE HOUSE SET IT UP. HE HAD A 3:00 P.M. PHONE CALL WITH MILITARY MEMBERS AROUND THE WORLD. THAT OBVIOUSLY DIDN’T HAPPEN. HE WENT TO AFGHANISTAN. THAT ALSO WASN’T MENTIONED. IT WAS SIMPLY PRESENTED AS GOLF AND TURKEY, RIGHT?>>Greg: THIS IS THE DOUBLE SCOOP OF EVIDENCE, WHY THE MEDIA IS DISCUSSING AND WHY NOBODY TRUSTS THEM. ONE, THEY CREATED THE FAKE NEWS, THEY ASSIGNED THE FAKE NEWS. TWO, THEY ASSIGNED A FAKE WRITER TO COVER THEIR — THE ONLY REASON WHY THEY GOT CAUGHT IS BECAUSE THE REAL STORY GOT REPORTED. IF THE REAL STORY WASN’T REPORTED, “NEWSWEEK” WOULD HAVE KEPT PUBLISHING THE LIE. I THINK THE PEOPLE THAT GOT FIRED SHOULD SUE “NEWSWEEK” AND BUY IT FOR A DOLLAR. CLOSE IT DOWN, PUT IT OUT OF ITS MISERY. WE WERE TALKING IN THE BREAK ABOUT HOW MUCH WE LOVED “NEWSWEEK” GROWING UP. YOU COULDN’T EVEN USE IT TO WIPE AN ANIMAL’S –>>Jesse: SOMEBODY’S GOT TO TAKE THE HEAT HERE. SHE JUST DID WHAT SHE WAS TOLD. THE EDITOR CAN’T TAKE THE FALL. HE IS THE EDITOR.>>Greg: BUT HE SHOULD.>>Dana: I WANT TO KNOW IF THE GUY WHO GOT DEMOTED, IF THAT PERSON WAS A MALE OR FEMALE.>>Katie: YOU HAVE SPENT A LOT OF TIME. THE REPORTER HAS A LONG HISTORY OF WORKING IN A NUMBER OF ORGANIZATIONS, ET CETERA. JUAN, YOU’VE SPENT A LOT OF TIME IN NEWSROOMS OVER YOUR LIFETIME. SHE ASSUMED SHE WOULD –>>Juan: RIGHT, BUT SHE WAS ASSIGNED TO WRITE A STORY FOR A WEEKEND. IF YOU ARE GOING INTO A BIG WEEKEND LIKE WE JUST DID, THANKSGIVING, YOU HAVE A BUNCH OF DAYS COMING UP, FRONT PAGE STORIES AREN’T WRITTEN THE DAY BEFORE. TYPICALLY, THEY ARE WRITTEN A WEEK BEFORE THEY ARE SIGNED. SHE WROTE ABOUT IT AND MADE FUN OF IT.>>Katie: SHE’S A REPORTER.>>Juan: THEY DID UPDATE THE HEADLINE, KATIE. THEY DID UPDATE THE HEADLINE. IF YOU UPDATED AND SAY WE WERE WRONG, WE WERE WRONG. WHILE YOU FIRE HER, I DON’T –>>Greg: COVERING THEIR –>>Dana: I THINK SHE’LL GET HIRED BY SOMEONE ELSE RIGHT AWAY HIRED BY SOMEONE ELSE RIGHT AWA AWAY.>>Juan: YOU ARE FIRING SOMEBODY WHO IS DOING THEIR JOB.>>Katie: IS SPEAKING OF BIAS, JESSE BLOOMBERG, THEY ANNOUNCED THAT THEY ARE NOT GOING TO BE INVESTIGATING HIM. THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN SAID, NO MORE ACCESS FOR BLOOMBERG REPORTERS IF YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BE FAIR TO US.>>Jesse: IF YOU ARE ONLY INVESTIGATING ONE POLITICAL PARTY AND NOT THE OTHER, YOU ARE A PRIVATE EYE. TAKE THE CREDENTIALS AWAY. I DON’T SEE A PROBLEM WITH THAT AT ALL. I THINK IT’S FUNNY HOW THEY ACTUALLY THINK THAT THE FAIR THING TO DO IS ONLY INVESTIGATE TRUMP. [LAUGHTER] ‘S BEFORE THAT WAS THEIR DECISION. IT’S CRAZY.>>Katie: IS THAT A FAIR THING TO DO SINCE THEY ARE OPENLY STATING THAT THEY ARE NOT GOING TO COVER BOTH SIDES?>>Juan: I DON’T THINK IT’S ABOUT JOURNALISM. I THINK IT’S ABOUT POLITICS. REMEMBER, TRUMP, I THINK HE TOOK AWAY CREDENTIALS. HE SAID, I DON’T LIKE THE WAY YOU COVER ME. THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO BASH THE MEDIA AND THAT PLAYS WELL WITH THE TRUMP CROWD.>>Greg: I THOUGHT IT WAS HILARIOUS AND FAIR. RATHER THAN SAY WE ARE GOING TO INVESTIGATE OUR BOSS AND ALL THE DEMOCRATS, THEY SAY, NO, WE’LL JUST DO THAT AND FOCUS ON TRUMP. I THINK BLOOMBERG SHOULD POSSIBLY DELL MIGHT PROBABLY SEVER TIES WITH HIS MEDIA COMPANY UNTIL HE STOPS RUNNING. THAT SEEMS TO BE THE MOST FAIR THING.>>Dana: IT’S ABSOLUTELY THE MOST FAIR THING. THE CONSEQUENCES ARE THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO ARE GOOD REPORTERS ARE BEING PUBLISHED PUNISHED. THEY WILL END UP LEAVING.>>Katie: DON’T GO ANYWHERE. THE FASTEST SEVEN IS NEXT. ♪ ♪

  1. It is nice to get a peek at the employees above the reporter level at these socialist propaganda outlets and catch them shaping the news rather than actually reporting it. And then they throw the reporter under the bus when it blows up lol – what slime balls these leftists are. How in God's name do the democrats get any of their politicians elected?

  5. Its time that news organizations stand up and do the right thing. Next time a reporter might think twice before publishing some fake news!!

  7. I´m amazed of how many people still believe MSM. I thought Covington Kids at latest made all people who follow news to see the light on the matter.

  8. The point missed ? Two ,at the least , new trump supporters created after they see the double edged sword they rode , of the current media with which they were employed. Hopefully they will see the light and convert their family to open eyes.
