Reporter Loses Job After Tweeting That Jarrod Ramos Wore MAGA Cap

From the point of view of a liberal journalist, wouldn’t it be great if Capital Gazette shooter Jarrod Ramos, instead of looking like a hippy moonbat straight from central casting, had worn a MAGA hat during his killing spree? That would be so wonderful, you might even be tempted to report it even though it isn’t true. If people objected to your telling lies, you could always just pass it off as a joke. Except that Conor Berry lost his job anyway:

A reporter in Springfield, Mass., resigned from his job Friday after posting a Twitter message falsely stating that the Maryland shooting suspect had brought a “Make America Great Again” hat to the office of the Capital Gazette.

Conor Berry, who wrote for the Republican, tweeted an image of a MAGA hat Thursday, and suggested that the suspect had left it behind at the Gazette office after allegedly killing five Gazette employees.

Presumably his resignation was not voluntary.

Berry characterizes his tweet as a “snarky, sarcastic, cynical remark.” It was cynical, all right — but not more so than the many more prominent members of the liberal establishment who have incongruously blamed Donald Trump for Ramos’ behavior. One example is Reuters Breakingviews Editor Rob Cox, who tweeted,

“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.”

Now why would anyone call liberal journalists the enemy of the people?
