    LA Times’ Steven Borowiec Apologizes for Wishing Donald Trump Would Die — ‘In Jest’

    A Los Angeles Times reporter apologized on Thursday for wishing Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s life “would end.”

    “I meant it in jest,” Steven Borowiec explained on Twitter after deleting his original tweet:

    Steven Borowiec @steven_borowiec
    I apologize for my Trump tweet. I meant it in jest.
    7:26 AM - 3 Nov 2016 · Tajiri-cho, Osaka, Japan

    TIME magazine sent out a tweet earlier on Thursday, saying, “See Donald Trump’s life in photos.”

    “I’d rather see Donald Trump’s life end,” Borowiec replied to that tweet. A Washington, D.C., radio reporter took a screenshot that went viral on Twitter:

    Really hope the @latimes understands that one of its journalists said this about @realDonaldTrump ... before deleting the Tweet

    4:04 AM - 3 Nov 2016

    Borowiec is far from the first member of the press to wish harm on Trump. In June, an NBC producer praised an illegal alien and attempted assassin as “a good guy with a gun” after he tried to murder Trump at a Las Vegas rally.

    Update: LA Times Severs Relationship With Reporter Who Wished for Donald Trump’s Deat

    by KATIE MCHUGH

    The Los Angeles Times fired freelance reporter Steven Borowiec after tweeted he wished Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s “life would end” on Thursday.

    The Los Angeles Times provided a statement to Breitbart News:

    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
    .

    TIME magazine sent out a tweet earlier on Thursday, saying, “See Donald Trump’s life in photos.”

    “I’d rather see Donald Trump’s life end,” Borowiec replied to that tweet.

    Borowiec joins an NBC producer who praised an illegal alien and attempted assassin as “a good guy with a gun” after he tried to murder Trump at a Las Vegas rally as members of the press who wished harm on a presidential candidate.
