LA Times reporter fired for wishing Trump death



An LA Times reporter who tweeted and deleted that he wished 'Trump's life end' has been fired by the news organisation.

The organisation also released a brief statement condemning his action.....

“Earlier today, Steven Borowiec, a freelance journalist in South Korea, posted a tweet about Donald Trump on his personal Twitter profile that violated our professional standards,” the statement read. “The Los Angeles Times is committed to fair, evenhanded coverage of the presidential campaign, and expects all journalists representing the paper, including non-staff contributors such as Mr. Borowiec, to adhere to this standard in their articles and social media posts. We regard Mr. Borowiec’s comment as inexcusable, and we have ended our relationship with him.
