New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman has made a career off exclusives from the White House under President Donald Trump. But she's also drawn criticism for her symbiotic relationship with the Trump administration—accused of putting furthering her career ahead of truth or journalistic integrity.
On Wednesday, Haberman tweeted a New York Post piece about Hunter Biden to her 1.5 million followers.
She captioned her post with an excerpt from the Post piece.
Haberman's choice to share the Post article lead to backlash online.
And a new moniker for the NYT correspondent.
The biggest criticism was the validity of the piece Haberman chose to amplify.
Over an hour after her original amplification of the Post article, Haberman walked it back by pointing out the holes in the story.
The story Haberman amplified was debunked repeatedly in the meantime.
In response to the backlash, Haberman blamed Twitter, but her critics weren't persuaded by her explanations.
As of Wednesday, October 14, the presidential election is 19 days away. During that time, everyone should be vigilant against such propaganda.
