Reporters Who Ruined Their Careers In A Matter Of Seconds

These journalists went viral for all the wrong reasons and then some of them got sent straight to the unemployment line. Whether it was because of professional or personal snafus, these are the reporters who ruined their careers in a matter of seconds.

Washington Post reporter Felicia Sonmez found herself embroiled in controversy following Kobe Bryant’s tragic death in 2020 when she tweeted a link to a 2016 story from the Daily Beast that outlined the felony assault charges leveled at the basketball player in 2003. Though Sonmez was hardly the first person to bring up Bryant’s darker past following his death, she was the one who paid the price.

Sonmez, who is a survivor of assault herself, received an email from Post executive editor Martin Baron criticizing her since-deleted tweets, which urged her followers to remember public figures in, quote, “their totality.” Shortly after, Sonmez was instructed by the paper’s managing editor, Tracy Grant, to delete the tweets per the organization’s security policy, and she was placed on paid administrative leave.

After outrage from some 300 Post co-workers who didn’t approve of the paper’s decision, Sonmez was reinstated, although Grant still maintained that the tweets were “ill-timed.” While Sonmez’s career is intact for now, she had to endure death threats and harassment.

  1. So don’t have conservative views! It’s clear these stations have nothing against political apparel. They’re just leftists, and don’t want others to have opinions, that don’t suit their narrative.

  2. News Flash: Far more blacks are killed by other blacks than white people or the police. That’s called a FACT!

  3. How about the media all get fired for their fake news and disrespecting the country they live in freely .

  4. News Week's reporter wrote about Trump's trip before the trip even happened. That is not journalism, that's called writing fiction.

  5. I actually felt bad for Morris. Because you can tell she didn’t mean to say it. You could clearly hear the K, and the look of embarrassment on her face when it happened. There are so many actual racist things going on in the world to be mad at, and we choose this woman who literally just stuttered?? Embarrassing

  6. I feel so bad for The reporter who mixed the nicks and the Lakers names. Ppl do that all time, thats where the celebrity couples names come from poor lady

  7. I remember the "Nakers" incident/cover up story. Whether she meant to say it or not, she definitely said the N-word. I even played it back with captions on and even that read out the N-word.

  8. I can totally agree with Alison Morris, my wife does that all the time putting 2 words together like that.
