Fake News: Newsweek didn't write or read fake 'Hillary won' cover story

Fake News Alert!!!

Do you remember Newsweek‘s November 8, 2016 “Special Commemorative Edition” — the one declaring Hillary Clinton as the winner of an election that hadn’t yet taken place? (See “The fix is in: Newsweek already has an issue in print declaring Hillary Clinton the winner”)
Believing in the media’s rigged election polls, Newsweek was so confident Hillary would be the winner that they had the “Madame President” issue already in print and sent to vendors before the election results. The National Enquirer reports:

Newsweek was left with a huge stash of magazines to burn — after their Special Edition ‘Madam President’ cover featuring Hillary was sent out to news vendors. An alternate cover celebrating ‘President Trump’ was also prepared, but the publishers had only printed copies of Hillary’s ‘winning’ issue.

According to Topix Media, 17 of the 125,000 “Madam President” issues had been sold before they were recalled by Newsweek.
The following is a quote pulled from the fawning “Madam President” cover story, in which Trump and his supporters are demonized as “deplorable,” fearful and hateful, who want to repeal the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which gave women the right to vote:

“…as the tone of the election grew darker and more bizarre by the day, President-Elect Hillary Clinton ‘went high’ when her opponent went even lower. No stranger to trudging through the mire of misogyny in her career as first lady, senator, and secretary of state, President-Elect Clinton continued to push for an issues-based campaign even as a handful of Trump’s most deplorable supporters, seeing the wide margins Clinton held among female voters, called to repeal the 19th amendment. On election day, Americans across the country roundly rejected the kind of fear and hate-based conservatism peddled by Donald Trump and elected the first woman in U.S. history to the presidency. The culminating election of a career in politics spanning 3 decades and arguably more experience than any other incoming president, 2016’s was not an easy race to watch, comment on or be a part of–but when the dust cleared it revealed a priceless moment in American history. The highest glass ceiling in the Western World had [been shattered]…”

I don’t recall Trump or his supporters calling for the 19th Amendment to be repealed, do you?
Even more ridiculous is the fact that Newsweek‘s political editor, Matthew Cooper, admitted that no one at Newsweek had either written or read the “Madam President” story.
Appearing on FoxNews’ Tucker Carlson Show on Nov. 30, 2016, Cooper said, referring to the “Madame President” issue (1:07 mark):

“It’s embarrassing. Let me tell you how it happened, and what we’re doing to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Newsweek, like a lot of publications, puts out special commemorative issues . . . these are big parts of the magazine business. What we did for the election was the company that we subcontract to . . . produced two editions: One, ‘President Trump’, and ‘Madame President’. They both . . . the ‘Madame President’ one mistakenly went out, which was the first embarrassment, it should never have happened. But it can happen . . . not up to our editorial standards. . . . No one on our staff wrote it, we subcontracted it out . . . [no one] read it before it went out . . . . You see, we subcontract these commemorative issues out to a company. This is pretty common in the magazine business . . . . It’s sort of been done on a separate track, and we did not review it before it went out.

As you heard from the video, Newsweek is blaming its premature “Madame President” issue on its subcontractor, Topix Media:

In other words, Newsweek‘s own editors and reporters don’t read the magazine. Kinda like Congress not reading a bill before they pass it, or as Nancy Pelosi put it in perfect Orwellian Newspeak: “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what’s in it.”

The question then is:

If Newsweek’s own staff don’t write or read the magazine, why are you?

Finally, the question must be asked:

So who actually wrote the McCarthyist “Madame President” cover-story?

Take our poll! 😀

  1. The question then is:
    If Newsweek’s own staff don’t write or read the magazine, why are you?

  2. BTW, in the poll my answer was The Russians!
    I know it’s sarcastic.

  3. I don’t remember where I read this, but a doctor is reported to have said after hearing Pelosi’s quote, “That is a perfect definition of examination of a stool sample.”

  4. I’m guessing Uma or Podesta wrote it.

  5. Let’s hope that the shares of Newsweek have plummeted. If a business entity cannot do business better than this — they should go out of business! What a bunch of bumble-heads.

  6. This has precedent; “Dewey defeats Truman”. However the the entire media cabal was caught flat- footed that night.

  7. Laughing at them makes them very angry and then they screw up even more…As Napoleon Bonaparte said, “Never interrupt your enemy when they are making a mistake.” Ahahahahahah!

  8. Now if a President Hillary took away women’s right to drive, THAT would be progress! (Just kidding!)

  9. Newsweak is lying. Would you put your name on something not knowing what’s in it? I don’t read that rag anyway. It’s not even good for wrapping fish.

    • Oh, and why did her issue mistakenly get printed and shipped, but not Mr. Trump’s? More BS, just like the polls.

  10. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this interesting post. I don’t believe any of Newsweek’s representations; they aren’t logical. nor do they make sense. Basically, Newsweek had no knowledge how one of the most important magazine articles was published in a commemorative edition. Absolutely a complete lie.
