FAIL: Newsweek Magazine Forced To Recall Issues With Incorrect ‘Madam President’ Cover

newsweek-recall-2016

Newsweek Magazine was so sure that Hillary would win the election that they rushed out copies of their new issue with Hillary on the cover and the headline ‘Madam President.’

They’ve now issued a recall on those issues and hurried out a new cover featuring Trump.

The New York Post reported:

National recall after Newsweek misfires with Clinton cover

A national recall went out Wednesday for the special “Madame President” issue of Newsweek that was prematurely shipped to stores and newsstands across the country.

At the same time, the publisher of the magazine will rush the “President Trump” version of the commemorative issue to press on Thursday — so it will get to stores next week.

“Like everybody else, we got it wrong,” said Tony Romando, CEO of Topix Media, the Newsweek partner which produces special issues under the popular brand.

Both a Clinton and a Trump commemorative issue were designed and laid out in advance, but Topix Media, believing late last week that Clinton was likely to win, shipped only the Clinton issue.

Newsweek is blaming Topix Media for the decision:

The media got this election so wrong.

They weren’t listening to the people. Trump was and that’s why he won!
