Something weird / missing in the original Manchurian Candidate film.

No, not the train scene.

“If kill we must for a better New York, why should it not be his superior at the newspaper, Mr. Holborn Gaines.
With Mr. Gaines out of the way, might he not then be given that very influential job himself?”

And then Raymond Shaw does go kill the newspaper editor.

And then… What? I don’t think there is any more reference to the newspaper or even acknowledgement that Raymond has/had a job? Promotion or otherwise?

Am I misremembering?
