WELL, LOOK AT THAT! A New York City newspaper with a little integrity

Sports columnist Bart Hubbuch announced Monday that he was fired from the New York Post for a tweet equating President Donald Trump’s inauguration with the September 11th and Pearl Harbor attacks.

 Washington Times  Mr. Hubbuch has since deleted the Jan. 20 tweet, which was briefly pinned to the top of his page. He also deleted a subsequent apology, which said he let his emotions “get the best” of him.

 And on Aug. 26, 2015, Mr. Hubbuch sparked controversy for a tweet calling the tragic shooting of two TV journalists in Virginia a “proud moment” for the National Rifle Association.
“Horrifying. Another proud moment for the NRA. Thank you, NYC, for your strict gun laws!” he wrote just hours after WDBJ7 journalists Alison Parker, 24, and cameraman Adam Ward, 27, were fatally shot during a live report in Moneta. Mr. Hubbuch spent several hours defending the tweet before eventually deleting it.
