Newsweek Has Fired Its Top Two Editors And Two Senior Reporters

Newsweek has fired its top two editors as well as two senior reporters, BuzzFeed News has learned.

Bob Roe, the editor in chief, and Kenneth Li, the executive editor, were both let go today, along with senior politics writer Celeste Katz and senior writer Josh Saul.

Sources also tell BuzzFeed News that staff in the magazine's New York office are withholding work until they get more information from company executives.

This follows a recent raid in the New York offices of parent company Newsweek Media Group by the Mahattan District Attorney; BuzzFeed News revealing that a top editor, Dayan Candappa, was fired from a previous job over sexual harassment allegations; and that sister publication the International Business Times has been engaging in ad fraud.
