Maggie Haberman Hits Back In Twitter Spat With ‘Trump Adviser’ Sean Hannity

New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman hit back at Fox News star Sean Hannity after he accused her of concocting “fake news” in a piece about 20 unusual advisers to President Trump.

Hannity accused Haberman of failing to ask him about reports that Trump turns to him for advice.

But Haberman stood by her reporting.

Hannity accused Haberman, who is Jewish, with relying on blind quotes to smear him — and Trump.

Haberman, who has formed a potent journalistic tag team with Glenn Thrush, said the Trump White House is a hotbed of shifting blocs.
