Newsweek Forced to Make Humiliating Decision After Sending Out Magazines with ‘President Hillary’ on Cover

Newsweek, along with countless other media outlets, predicted Hillary Clinton would become the 45th president of the United States.

Though it’s customary for Newsweek to create two commemorative editions of the magazine before the final results are in, the New York Post reports 125,000 issues declaring Clinton as the victor were mistakenly sent out prematurely.

Tony Romando, CEO of Topix Media, the Newsweek partner which produces Newsweek’s “special edition” issues, admitted:

Like everybody else, we got it wrong.”

Romando added that only 17 copies were sold with Clinton on the cover.

As the Guardian points out, Newsweek’s mistake is similar to the front page of the Chicago Daily Tribune on November 3, 1948, which read, “Dewey Defeats Truman.”

Incumbent President Harry S. Truman wasn’t expected to beat New York Governor Thomas E. Dewey, but he did just that.

The magazine’s “President Trump” edition has reportedly been rushed to stores with the goal of hitting newsstands Thursday.
