‘You’re fired!’ LA Times reporter’s ‘inexcusable’ Trump tweet has him join the unemployment line

The mainstream media is definitely biased, but there’s a line even they won’t cross, much as it seems many members would like to.

One such member is LA Times freelance journalist Steven Borowiec, who responded to a tweet from Time about Donald Trump’s “life in photos” by tweeting that he’d “rather see Donald Trump’s life end.”

Having second thoughts, the South Korea-based Borowiec quickly deleted the tweet, but not before it was caught and reposted:

To their credit, the LA Times took the issue seriously, firing the reporter. The newspaper confirmed this in a letter to TheBlaze:

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 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.

Borowiec has since apologized for the tweet, saying he meant it in jest.
