A newspaper reporter in Massachusetts resigned on Friday after falsely claiming in a tweet that the gunman who opened fire on a newsroom in Maryland a day earlier was wearing a hat bearing President Trump's campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again."

Conor Berry, a reporter at The Republican in Springfield, Mass., said on Twitter that his journalism career "came to a screeching halt" after the tweet on Thursday, and offered an apology to fellow reporters and Trump supporters.

"Folks, My 21-year career as a 'journalist,' a fancy term that makes my skin crawl, frankly, came to a screeching halt yesterday with one stupid, regrettable tweet," he wrote. "Can't take it back; wish I could. My sincere apologies to all good, hardworking reporters and to POTUS supporters." ...

In an excerpt from his resignation notice published on Friday by The Republican, Conor said that he was "ashamed" of his tweet, adding that it "taints the good work of fair-minded journalists everywhere."

At least he called the liberal press the correct part of the body.
