‘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. Just the facts folks – what happens in a week can be ANYTHING – so how do you plan for that – oh ya – print the old story that makes Trump look bad. No longer anything remotely related to news in the msm/.

  2. Newsweek is just another turd in a commode filled with other Democratic turds.   Newsweek, the NYT, the Washington Post, CBS, ABC (DISNEY), NBC, MSNBC, and CNN ARE FILLED WITH TREASONOUS BASTARDS WHO SHOULD BE EXECTUDED FOR TREASON.

  3. Look at Juan protecting Newsweek.  As I always say, Dems just cannot see the truth or the reality of any situation.

  4. Get rid of all these moronic corrupt news people , they are getting In the way of actual progress despite so many of them claiming how progressive they are .

  5. Why is Juan Williams even on FOX…..or Cable for that matter! He's a complete snowflake!I'm surprised he didn't blame Trump, he does everything else. Maybe there is another reason the lady got fired, like maybe she SUX…..

  6. I’m a President Trump supporter, and I think this is too much. We don’t follow cancel-fire culture, that’s what they do.

  7. The reporter doesn’t get say on what actually gets published there are higher overheads who have the say on what’s put out there.She was thrown under the bus to protect there own arses….
    The way of the world these days sadly!!!

  8. Is anyone surprised Juan defends a reporter writing a fake article about Trump simply because the President didn't run his schedule by the reporter first and the reporter literally wrote a fake story. Of course Juan also talks about Trump censoring a few media outlets that openly admit they won't cover him without bias, while ignoring the fact that Obama historically censored the media more then any President in U.S. history.

  9. The editor became President of the newsroom, and the reporter is now the editor.
    The success track of the lying media.

  10. The boss got real angry at that reporter, and said, "I am shocked, SHOCKED….there are misleading negative stories being made about the president!"

  11. Nunes has the media scrambling…..his lawsuit, I believe, will change the landscape of smear campaigns and fake news.

  12. And now multiplying this by a hundred or so might get the job done and increase the possibility of us being given news instead of just constant lies . " Sue them and buy them for a dollar ", brilliant Gutfeld !

  13. Meanwhile on the WORLD stage , EVERYONE is laughing at the orange criminal that may well take Pence Pompeo and now Nunes too ! Lock Him Up.

  14. There has to be more to the story. Reporters spew lies and talk trash about Trump non stop and nothing happens to them . All of a sudden Newsweek is going to magically grow some morality and fire a reporter? BS they wanted to fire her for another reason.

  15. Sad to say that the comments on NewsWeeks fall from respected publication to what it is now are true. Bloomberg news is biased. I don't trust MSM anymore.

  16. So weird to see how many Americans are unbothered that their president and his close supporters in the administration can lie relentlessly and uncheckered – while a reporter which is inaccurate on a story can get fired? That is the really weird thing about this so-called greatest nation on earth – what it probably was once, but now has lost all credibility and esteem in the Western world where our thinking was once in line with each other. China and Russia have more credibility now the US has sunk so deep with the current president and administration.

  17. The reporter was wrong, but also a patsy. They're disposable. For fake news recriminations to hurt we need the reporter's editor fired with them. The editor okays the story. Burn em both.

  18. Its so news week looks non-bias to the public. It's a step for longevity. Someone at news week is using there brain.

  19. Juan Williams speaks as if he doesn't know what the Newsweek reporter's real intentions were.
    As usual, since Trump's first day, the "Democratic" media has been making headlines of attacks on Trump, whether it's true or false.
    This was not a casual mistake. Anything goes for "Democratic" reporters as long as it's something to discredit Trump …

  20. Don’t defend the media! Their hatred for Trump oozes all the time! Gutfeld is 100% right! They would have kept the story…..disgusting! President Trump did not fire her…..her bosses did. This is still a free country!

  21. So when will Juan Williams get fired for making up and spreading fake news. Juan doesn’t even hide his idiocy anymore, he just blatantly spouts garbage. I think Fox keeps him around as a joke.

  22. Even if he went golfing and ate turkey what would it matter. It's thanksgiving. It's a holiday. What did any of these salty bitches accomplish on thanksgiving?

  23. Wrong AGAIN Juan. Trump has talked about taking away credentials of major "news" outlets for years, but never has until now with Bloomberg admitting they're a spy agency for their boss and not reporters. Get the facts straight Juan you Dem tool.

  24. The same happening here in Brazil with Pres BOLSONARO. Lot's of fake news and no good news are reported. The left hate him.

  25. What is there to investigate about Bloomberg though?? Are we going to investigate every single candidate running against Trump just because Trump is being investigate???

  26. On another Fox clip a MSM ‘journalist’ claimed this story was true, and that the President golfed Thanksgiving day at Maralago AND visited deployed military in Afghanistan. Is that even POSSIBLE?

  27. You can’t call them reporters or journalists.

    That would imply they report the news. This is proof they create the news.
    They are now story tellers

  28. I agree twitter is for shits and giggles not for a figure the world looks at like Trump and laughs at his stupidity. That is an embarrassment not only towards him but to all others that live In America. I wish you could tell trump to stay OFF! What ever happened to be the bigger person and walk away?

  29. Trump tells alot of people what to write with false evidence or anything that lacks substance? What's the big deal

  30. If only more so called reporters would get fired like this they would stop allowing themselves to be used for fake information being spoon fed to idiot leftists that just want it to be true. It's ok to say we were wrong after 1 or 2 fake stories but not every day.

  31. Give us a Break!! The vermin in the media are about to fall into themselves! Creeps! They belong in defamation court!

  32. If they fired all these SOBs for the lies and rumors they help spread around to benefit the Democrats to slander President Trump then more truth would be told…I have no more faith in most of the Media networks.

  33. Apparently Trump has fired all the proper snakes. After 3 years of firing snakes his white house can keep a secret. He warned the snakes he was going to drain their swamp, turns out, it was a toilet and they're all going down the drain and trying to drag him down with them.
