Sadly, this is the new normal among Trump-hating “journalists” these days – and despite this particular reporter’s resignation, media figures across the country continue to try and place blame at the feet of President Trump for the actions of a deranged Hispanic man with a dispute against an Annapolis newspaper that dates back to the Obama years. And they wonder why so few Americans trust the Mainstream Media?
Folks, My 21-year career as a "journalist," a fancy term that makes my skin crawl, frankly, came to a screeching halt yesterday with one stupid, regrettable tweet. Can't take it back; wish I could. My sincere apologies to all good, hardworking reporters and to POTUS supporters.

Via The Hill:
A newspaper reporter in Massachusetts resigned on Friday after falsely claiming in a tweet that the gunman who opened fire on a newsroom in Maryland a day earlier was wearing a hat bearing President Trump’s campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again.”
Conor Berry, a reporter at The Republican in Springfield, Mass., said on Twitter that his journalism career “came to a screeching halt” after the tweet on Thursday, and offered an apology to fellow reporters and Trump supporters.
