Newsweek pre-picks winner, sends ‘Madam President’ issue to stores – company calls it a ‘business decision’

In what will surely fuel cries that the fix was in all along, just as Donald Trump has been saying, Newsweek printed a special edition issue announcing Hillary Clinton as the winner.

The “Madam President” issue has already been shipped to stores, according to the N.Y. Post.

More from the Post:

The third-party service that makes the magazine’s commemorative issues gave the green light to print the edition, which reads “Madam President.” It later hit the stands at a Barnes & Noble outlet.

“The polls show Hillary Clinton with a commanding lead, and a business decision was made to print the Clinton issue first while continuing to work on the Trump issue,” said the company’s CEO, Tony Romando.


To be safe, an issue was also created announcing “President Trump,” but CNN said that “Topix made a business decision to only print the Clinton version ahead of time given that she is almost universally favored to win the election on Tuesday.”

Romando said if Hillary Clinton falters on Tuesday, the “Madam President” copies will be trashed and the Trump issue will be rushed to the printing presses.
