NYTs Journalist Pushes Unfounded Trump Theory, Fox Reporter Corrects her
 
New York Times journalist Maggie Haberman tried to push a baseless narrative about the source of a President Trump claim. Fox News reporter John Roberts quickly corrected her, pointing out that the President's information likely came from a publically available source.

According to The Daily Caller:

New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman tweeted Thursday that President Donald Trump was able to see the jobs report numbers in advance, suggesting he was attempting to “spin” the figures.

Haberman retweeted a Trump tweet Thursday that said, “Really Good Job Numbers,” captioning Trump’s tweet by speculating about what Trump’s tweet might mean. Jobs report numbers will be available tomorrow at 8:30 am via the Department of Labor.

 

Chief White House Correspondent at Fox News, John Roberts, responded to Haberman’s tweet by linking to the ADP National Employment Report and suggesting that Trump was quoting that instead.

“Perhaps,” Haberman responded. “But. He could attempt to be clear in what he’s referring to and then it isn’t incumbent upon his aides/some reporters to have to do that post-fact.”


In the era where everything the president does has to mean a sinister scandal, this seems to be par for the course.

This type of behavior will likely continue while President Trump holds office.
