Even liberal journalists are beginning to question the veracity of claims made by “Fire and Fury” author Michael Wolff; with prominent New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman saying there are multiple “parts that are factually wrong.”
Haberman was speaking with CNN when she suddenly admitted that she could “see several places in the book that are wrong,” adding that Wolff “inaccurately describes a report” from her own newspaper.
“I believe parts of it, and then there are other parts of it that are factually wrong,” she told CNN. “I can see several places in the book that are wrong… So, for instance, he inaccurately describes a report in the New York Times. He inaccurately characterizes a couple of incidents that took place early on in the administration. He gets basic details wrong.”

Wolff’s latest exposé, titled “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” came under fire from liberals and conservatives this week, following multiple reports of inaccuracies and flat out falsehoods.
The book’s prologue itself admits that many aspects of the book are “badly untrue.”
“Many of the accounts of what has happened in the Trump White House are in conflict with one another; many, in Trumpian fashion, are baldly untrue,” Wolff writes.
BUSTED: Author ADMITS Sections of ‘Fire and Fury’ TOTALLY UNTRUE
The author behind a recent anti-Trump exposé admits in the book’s prologue that vast sections of his work were likely untrue, saying several of his sources “lied to him” and insider accounts “flatly contradicted those of others.”
According to Business Insider, Michael Wolff admits that different accounts of the early days of the Trump Presidency described in “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” were false, urging readers to “make up their own minds.”
In the book’s prologue, the author writes, “Many of the accounts of what has happened in the Trump White House are in conflict with one another; many, in Trumpian fashion, are baldly untrue. These conflicts, and that looseness with the truth, if not with reality itself, are an elemental thread of the book.”
“Sometimes I have let the players offer their versions, in turn allowing the reader to judge them,” he adds. “In other instances I have, through a consistency in the accounts and through sources I have come to trust, settled on a version of events I believe to be true.”
“The book itself, reviewed by Business Insider from a copy acquired prior to its Friday publication, is not always clear about what level of confidence the author has in any particular assertion,” writes the article.
MEDIA MELTDOWN: Joy Behar Says Trump ‘GOING TO KILL’ All of Us
The media’s non-stop meltdown following President Trump’s refusal to appease North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un was on full display Wednesday, with comedian Joy Behar saying Trump needs to be “medicated and hospitalized” before he “just kills all of us.”
‘The View’ hosts were discussing the President’s tweet to Kim Jong Un earlier this week, when the Commander-in-Chief warned the dictator that he too has a “nuclear button,” but unlike Kim’s, his “button works.”
“Trump needs to be medicated and hospitalized at this point or he’s going to just kill all of us. My feeling is that probably they’re getting closer to him in the Mueller investigation, and that’s what this is about,” said Behar.
“He’ll blow the whole world up so his stupid sons don’t have to go to jail,” the liberal host added.
The President made national headlines earlier this week when he issued a stark warning to Kim Jong Un regarding America’s unwillingness to co-exist with a nuclear-armed North Korea; saying the US has a much “bigger and more powerful” arsenal at its disposal.
