Leaked audio of a private meeting between a Newsweek executive and the magazine’s editors on Wednesday reveal that the beleaguered news organization is tearing apart at the seams following allegations of financial crimes; including tax evasion, money laundering, and defrauding a federal agency in an ad revenue scheme.
Audio of the 90 minute meeting between Newsweek Chief Content Officer Jonathan Davis and editors was obtained by the Daily Beast, in which the editors took Davis to the woodshed…
Last week we reported that the magazine had fired editor-in-chief Bob Roe, executive editor Ken Li, and journalist Celeste Katz – who had written articles covering the active investigation into parent company Newsweek Media Group. Davis blames Katz’s reporting for doing “real damage” to Newsweek’s business relationships, and that it “ruined a business deal abroad.”
Davis grew increasingly defensive, saying Newsweek’s own journalists had written “hit pieces” which “attacked” the company, adding “if we had integrity we should be defending the company.”
“Why do we need to do this necessarily to ourselves?” Davis asked. “In the name of integrity?” -Daily Beast
Katz also wrote a recent article critical of Newsweek Chief Content Officer Dayan Candappa, who was placed on leave after Katz’s article detailing allegations that he sexually harassed women while he was a top official with Reuters.
Following Candappa’s suspension, Davis stepped in as interim CCO – however Candappa was reinstated in the role today.

Owen Benjamin, a long-time Comedian and proud Christian, featured in several times in both Comedy Central Specials and Jay Leno, as well as several Movies and TV-Shows such as Sullivan & Son and ‘The House Bunny’, has been banned from a tax payer funded community center in Buford, Georgia after attempting to use the venue for an upcoming tour.

WATCH: Jesse Watters Says Democrats Angry That There’s No Collusion
Fox News personality Jesse Watters, who hosts the show, “Watters World,” and is a big supporter of President Donald Trump, said Saturday that Democrats are angry that Robert Mueller found out that Trump is not a Russian agent.
Watters made the remarks Saturday as part of his opening remarks, during his weekly show on Fox News Channel.
“Mueller found [President Trump] wasn’t a traitor after Democrats for two years falsely accused him of being a traitor,” Watters said. “Instead of being relieved, they’re angry.”
“[He] was fighting back against their false allegations,” he continued.
This was an attempted take-down or Coup D’Etat!
