Fake News: Newsweek Admits They Didn’t Proof Read ‘MADAM PRESIDENT’ Issue; They Didn’t Even Write It

A Newsweek editor admitted Wednesday that the infamous Hillary Clinton ‘Madam President’ issue was not proof read before being shipped out, and no one on the staff at the magazine had any hand in writing it.

Appearing on Tucker Carlson Tonight, Newsweek political editor Matt Cooper attempted to defend the fact that Newsweek printed and shipped out commemorative issues declaring Hillary Clinton the next US President, days before the election even took place.

The outlet even had Hillary sign some of the 125,000 copies of the magazine, which in its introduction labeled Trump supporters as “deplorable” and described his campaign as “fear and hate-based conservatism”.

Cooper admitted to Carlson that he personally did not read the content of the issue before it was sent out, and neither did anyone on his staff. What’s more, none of them even know who wrote the thing.

“The writing in this is, shall we say, not up to the editorial standards of Newsweek,” Cooper said, adding “no one on our staff wrote it. We subcontract out to a company.”

“But when you read it before it went out, what did you say?” Carlson asked.

“Well, no, we didn’t [read it],” Cooper replied. “We subcontract these commemorative issues to a company … so it’s sort of been done on a separate track, and we did not review it before it went out.”

Things then got downright weird as Carlson asked what would’ve happened if the subcontractor printed something insane like the writings of Hitler, and then sent it out under the Newsweek banner, without the staff proof reading it.

“Well, if they had reprinted Mein Kampf, that would be even worse,” Cooper said, claiming that in future the magazine will work harder to review the content being printed in such issues.

So there you have it, an arm of the corporate media literally printing politically biased fake news, admitting it is fake, and admitting it doesn’t bother to review it or even write it in the first place.

Is it any wonder that less than 5 percent of Americans trust the mainstream media?

    #Iran is a state sponsor of terrorism, and a threat to Saudi Arabia, Israel, and American interests in the region. Period.#
    This is how they do it, aka Well pissing

    This quote is from Saker, I know its not His intentions as far I know, but somehow this narrative is what I know is coming, standard hasbaratnjik strategy, and of course no explanation on what terrorism Iran is doing or have done, of course since Iran isnt doing anything, so the freaks invent this narrative and Iran is Islamic country, right Yan-kikes.
    This invasion of the comment field is sky rocketing, and take RT as an ex. where they are crawling everywhere, of course easy to spot, but when half of the readers are brain-dead, this will stick, hammer it long anof and this narrative will be an “truth” just like the Trumps moronic babbling about Palestinians celebrating the 9/11 event, and where do he get THAT from.
    While He refuse to believe it when the Israels where dancing on the bridge the moment the twin towers where attacked and thats even filmed.
    huh

    Even when this have been debunked hard, they still use it, and I know a lot of people thinks this is true, creating fake narratives.

    And the tech to infuse this narrative is their new strategy be aware, this is Trumps agenda, to nuke Iran, so they have started the propaganda war, as we speak.
    He looks ugly er and ugly er as we proceed, the truth comes in small driblets, and is and will be infused everywhere in the commentary fields.
    The war is coming.
    Wanna bet.

    I dont buy this left-right winged sniveling drivel both arms are attache to the body and the body is controlled by neoCONs and so on, Trump wouldn’t be there He is right now if He haven’t cut an deal with the true rules of the imperial banana republic UssA, no chance.

    we are f….

    peace

    Tucker’s interview was great, when he read excerpts from the Newsweek adoration of HRC he called it ‘softcore porn’ because of how it read. He nailed it, it was sickening. The ghost writers even tossed in the ‘they went high when Trump’s campaign went low’ line.
