Maggie Haberman is a New York Times Washington Correspondent.
Source for Trump Info
Haberman has been dubbed the, “Trump-Whisperer” for her many scoops of the Trump Administration.” She has been said to be responsible for a strikingly large amount of what we know happened behind the scenes of the Trump Administration. 1
She’s been notably both hated and loved by both the left and right for her reporting on President Trump.2 The left has criticized her for “regurgitating” Trump administration propaganda, and painting them in an overly favorable light, while being hated on the right for insider reporting on Trump.
Attacked by Trump
Trump has directly attacked Haberman after she contributed to a story suggesting Michael Cohen would cooperate with Federal Law enforcement (which he eventually did).3
While Trump has given her stories himself, she has received some criticism (and some praise) for reporting with a, “tabloid style,” not because she lacks reliability, but her stories often include juicy personal details.4
