Skip to comments.Trump lashes out at New York Times reporter in latest attack on press
Posted on 04/21/2018 4:13:57 PM PDT by bryan999
President Trump's first public comments from Palm Beach, Florida, on Saturday were to attack New York Times' White House correspondent Maggie Haberman, apparently over her coverage of a criminal investigation of Mr. Trump's personal lawyer. They were the latest in his sustained attacks on the press in general, specific media outlets, and even specific reporters, as well as their sources and methods.
His remarks also served as an indication of how much the situation involving his lawyer Michael Cohen appears to be frustrating Mr. Trump. The president has dubbed recent raids on Cohen's office, home and hotel room a "disgrace" and "attack on our country."
But Mr. Trump on Saturday singled out Haberman, who was part of a team that won a Pulitzer Prize this year for reporting on the Trump team's Russia connections. On Friday, Haberman and other New York Times reporters wrote that Cohen could turn against Mr. Trump as he faces a federal criminal investigation over his business dealings.

They give Pulitzers for writing about fantasies? Amazing!
Yeah, I read that... baffling!
I hope this Haberman b-word gets what’s coming to her... She’s a real piece of work.
She was a prime participant in spreading the fake dossier story and might one of the fake-news journalists who got paid to push this treasonous smear.
CBS never calls negative comments they make “lashing out”.
Trump responds to media bashing unlike the wimp Bush.
Amazing, just amazing. I can’t believe The New York Times is still in business. So many other options on Internet, and probably journalists with a dedication to get facts.. I wonder which group of people are even buying the New York Times. Give them credit for persistently trying to overthrow a legally chosen President of the USA.
FALSE. The President has never attacked “the press”. Many times however he has attacked specific news organizations (such as this one) that continuously spew out fake news. BIG DIFFERENCE!
The NYT has blood on it’s hands going back to the Civil War.
Can’t dodge that kind of Karma forever.
When we get a leader that has the stones to straighten things out these scumbags will be in the top 5 to get fixed.
She works for the Times? I thought she was Hillary’s communications director.
She is mentioned by name directly in the Clinton/Podesta e-mails as a person they can count on putting their version out in the paper
Deep state writes the scrips for these media stooges.
I wonder how she looks in stripes?
“Haberman, who was part of a team that won a Pulitzer Prize this year for reporting on the Trump team’s Russia connections. “
A Pulitzer for reporting on fiction.
Rome2000: “The NYT has blood on its hands going back to the Civil War.”
Referring to this maybe? The pro-slavery NYT used Gatling guns against rioters (nowadays, called antifa). Turned them back, so they trashed the anti-slavery offices of Horace Greeley. The Left never changes...
“The main office of The New York Times was attacked during the New York City Draft Riots. The riots, sparked by the beginning of drafting for the Union Army, began on July 13, 1863. On “Newspaper Row”, across from City Hall, Henry Raymond stopped the rioters with Gatling guns, early machine guns, one of which he manned himself. The mob diverted, instead attacking the headquarters of abolitionist publisher Horace Greeley’s New York Tribune until being forced to flee by the Brooklyn City Police, who had crossed the East River to help the Manhattan authorities.”
Yep - hit me too - lots of my favorite Sci-Fi authors got robbed!
As media attention increasingly turns to 2016 and Secretary Clinton continues to move toward a decision, we want to be proactive in shaping public opinion...
We are all in agreement that the time is right to place a story with a friendly journalist...
We have had a very good relationship with Maggie Haberman at Politico over the past year. We have had her tee up stories for us and have never been disappointed. ... We can achieve our objective and do the best shaping by going to Maggie.
The media needs “attacked”. For the most part they are dishonest...chronic liars.
