‘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. Does anybody, anywhere in the world, wonder why we do not give credence to anything the MSM says about President Trump?!? Fox news I'm with you, the only news station you can actually believe. They give us the good, the bad and the ugly but it's the truth. Thank you President Trump for being such an outstanding president for America!! 2020!!
    β™₯οΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έβ™₯️

  2. Speaking of investigating how come they're not investigating Bloomberg going down to pedophile Island he's on the pedophile list along with a lot of the Hollywood Elites Oprah Winfrey Madonna the list goes on and on

  3. This was a ruse by Newsweek to try and make them look neutral, able and willing to write pro-Trump. It didn't work. Newsweek is trash.

  4. I used to read Newsweek and Time when I was young and stupid. Now I'm old and wise and not buying that sneaky Socialist and commie crap anymore. When I was young I just thought those mags were ""JUST NEWS"". Now I realize they are slanted towards COMMI and Socialist PROPAGANDA.

  5. If a reporter GETS fired for being inaccurate about President Trump, CNN, msnbc, abc,cbs,nbc,and half of the people at fox,would be unemployed! Bankrupted! They live by LYING about the President!

  6. Even if he did play golf, so what. He is not getting paid to be President. Look at all the vacations and golf outings Obama had . Even during the really bad times in this country it didn't stop Obama from taking time off

  7. Ok you oblivious to the obvious, blind and deaf liberals! Do you see anyone getting sued or fired from fox!? I didn't think so but keep telling yourself cnn, Washington Post and new York time are factually truthful!! People like the left let me wake up every day with a smile in my face! Good luck in 2020 waterheads

  8. This is what happens when u fight against God's anointed one… get it Dems Peros is the next 😁😁😁

  9. Without Twitter Trump would be subjected to the negative press. He is able to share with those who voted for him daily in short burst of his news.

  10. Can’t we change it to β€œThe Four” please?! Let the other one go to work for the β€œother” guys! πŸ™„

  11. They are losing law suits every other day .Politicians , If you take an oath of office you are always under oath when speaking on the job.

  12. β€œThis Whitehouse is so good with keeping a secret” that’s got to be the funniest thing I’ve heard in a while. Trumps surrounded by incompetent leftist traitors.

  13. Oh no he's back, why? Don't you at Fox hear us? We can't stand Juan, not because he is a democrat, but because of his moronic arguments. I'm outta here!

  14. How about investigating Bloomberg for having his fake news room investigating his political rivalβ“πŸ˜±
    After all isn't that something the left complains about Trump doing to Biden while he's running for president β“πŸ˜•β“

  15. I guess the reporter assumed that Trump would be doing the same thing that Obama did on Thanksgiving Christmas and other holidays

  16. Trump will be out of office soon 2024 and can sue the crap out of them………..I look forward to it! MAGA 2020 America Loves Trump

  17. Soooooo… they throw somebody under the bus to TRY to make themselves look… honest? … WHAT? They just don’t get it. Nobody that has brains cares what they say or do anymore. They’ve reduced themselves to less then national inquirer.

  18. DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED. DO KNOW IS SAD THAT A PERSON DOESN'T KNOW IF WHAT IS BEING REPORTED IS TRUE OR TRUTH. ASSUMPTION DOESN'T MEAN DIDDLY SQUAT. HAPPENING ALOT NOW

  19. Well we know more clearly who the leftist activists are in the media in Hollywood, news channels, politics, bloggers,etc.
    I won't be watching their movies, their news, or reading articles, nor voting for them.
    I do look at both sides of a story when need arises but only to show how crazy the left has gotten.
    This is America and the Constitution is the supreme law of the land next to the 10 commandments of course. Not any human ideology.

    From now on if a political candidate does not stand by the Constitution as it is written I am not voting for them. That is how you know who is on America's side.

  20. Lol…. it's what Newsweek gets for jumping to conclusions about President Trump. the funny thing is had they said that about mr. Obama they probably would have been right
