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.
@nytimes You colluded with HRC in 2016. It’s none of your business who i do or do not talk too. Total fake news speculation about me/@POTUS— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) April 22, 2017
But Haberman stood by her reporting.
W all due respect, we were interested in who POTUS talks to, not you, and several ppl close to him cited you https://t.co/sb9y4nDJYt— Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) April 22, 2017
Hannity accused Haberman, who is Jewish, with relying on blind quotes to smear him — and Trump.
So “anonymous sources” should be taken with a grain of salt. People might manipulate say the @nytimes by offering such quotes? We agree!! https://t.co/hghQjfATGk— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) April 23, 2017
Haberman, who has formed a potent journalistic tag team with Glenn Thrush, said the Trump White House is a hotbed of shifting blocs.
The alliances in this West Wing are like the weather - wait a few hours and it will change.— Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) April 23, 2017
