Another victim of Democrati anti-Trump syndrome has "apologized" after a fit of knee-jerky rage that had him Tweeting a wild prairie fire conspiracy about the Annapolis shooting.

An "editor" at Reuters tweeted and blamed Trump for the whole thing !!

Now he "realizes" he was wrong and says it was not a good thing to do.

He got the message out anyway and enough people now believe it just the same.

College and Professionalism has its effects 🤦

Reuters editor apologizes, could be disciplined after blaming Capital Gazette shooting on Trump

A top editor at Reuters apologized on Thursday night after blaming President Trump for the deadly Capital Gazette shooting in a now-deleted tweet that was sent during a “state of emotional distress,” but he might still be disciplined by the international news service.

Reuters Breakingviews Editor Rob Cox admitted that he “responded emotionally and inappropriately” after being called out for jumping to conclusions prior to the facts emerging. Police said the suspected gunman, eventually identified as Jarrod W. Ramos, targeted the newspaper after a lengthy feud regarding a 2012 defamation lawsuit.

“This is what happens when @realDonaldTrump calls journalists the enemy of the people. Blood is on your hands, Mr. President. Save your thoughts and prayers for your empty soul,” Cox wrote in the deleted tweet, according to TheWrap.

Perfect example of one of the biggest problems with social media.

The fact that the first thing that people(some) think of when they are emotional and acting irrational is to "get this out" onto their social media is really just mind boggling. To me, it indicates a complete lack of intelligence.

A media that lies IS the enemy of the people. I am glad this editor had the good sense to apologize, however, it was likely coerced.

They need to make examples of people who do stuff like that, fire their arses. Trump messes up enough, they do not need to start making things up about him. But , I guess since everyone is doing it it is now acceptable, I hate to see what will happen when the next Democrat president gets in office.

...AND ANOTHER ONE:



Reporter at The Republican resigns over false Twitter post linking Trump to Maryland newspaper shooter


THIS was the reporter who tweeted that the shooter was wearing a MAGA hat.



A reporter at The Republican resigned Friday after publishing a Twitter post that falsely indicated the suspect who is charged with killing five people at an Annapolis Maryland newspaper was wearing a President Trump-inspired "Make America Great Again" hat.

Conor Berry took full responsibility for the unauthorized tweet. "I am ashamed of my tweet, which taints the good work of fair-minded journalists everywhere," Berry wrote in his resignation notice.

Funny how we here get the facts so much faster than the msm sometimes isn't it.

No, they're actually manufacturing facts (see my last post).

A lil different than "just being emotional".

Hopefully that won't happen. The craziness of the left will hopefully force the majority of democrats to form a new party. I'm afraid the alternative to be a possibly hard if not a soft Civil War that leads to the fracturing of our nation.

I won't name them, but in this thread a poster is guilty of the same knee jerk reaction and blames NRA members/gun owners/Trump for this shooting.
I've pointed this out many times, but it doesn't seem to hit home for the anti gun folks :
We're not supposed blame all Muslims for terrorism.
We're not supposed to see all illegals as criminals.
We're not supposed to blame all Blacks for crime and shootings in Chicago.


......but gun owners are fair game anytime.

well trump did call the press the enemy of the people and calls them fake news, threatens to take away press credentials etc etc now no matter how crazy the perp would have been had he attacked a republican you know you all would be jumping down maxine waters throat.

yes people on both sides are pushing the divisiveness in this country. people are either too far right or too far left, no one wants to actually sit down and work out a compromise, it's always my way or the highway.

And then they proved him right by posting fake news to hurt Trump. When was the last time they posted something praising Trump and then corrected it later?

The press was corrupted before WWII. Wake up. You also think J Edgar Hoover was a saint? My dad said never believe everything you read but you do? He said that a long long time ago but now everyone believes the media.

Yea tell us how the "its all about the children" from the 1980s worked out.

I'm sitting here drinking in my upper midwest home on a Friday...some straight white middle-class guy who didn't go to the Trump rally in town this week only because he couldn't get tickets...

And I come in here to ATS and wonder...

Why have you been defending this guy for a year and a half? Why is everything Trump?

Take a breather.

He sucks. He's the best.

He's nothing.

Sorry...probably doesn't belong in thread.

be careful what you wish for. would you prefer state run media where trump okays every story before it goes out? this is a slippery slope trump is taking by getting the american public so anti media.

i can agree to this...i think we should reevaluate the rules regarding who and how one can be legally allowed to call themselves "news". right now what we have is spin networks that work for each individual party.

Interesting, thanks for this.

He tweeted his personal feelings and his employer may still discipline him over that to show they do not support bias from employees.

Reuters is known for being one of the least biased international news agencies and this shows why that is so. We should hope some of our own would act in this manner.

I didn't post until the facts have some out.

I'm going to try to not capitalize on tragedy to push a political point.

No sense arguing with emotions. You'll always lose.

No it just wasn't sanctioned bias.
