ECHO CHAMBER: Dem Rep Calls for Probe into Nikki Haley After PHONY HEADLINE

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.14.18

Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu called on his Congressional colleagues to launch an investigation into Nikki Haley and the State Department’s budget this week; saying “this is not okay” after citing a debunked New York Times headline surrounding the Ambassador.

“This is not okay. As a Member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, I call on @HouseForeign Chairman @RepEdRoyce to hold an oversight hearing on @StateDept spending on @nikkihaley and her deputy,” tweeted the Congressman Thursday night.

Lieu fails to mention the article -while suggesting Haley purchased $52,000 curtains for her New York residence- admits six paragraphs later that the window-dressings were approved in 2016 by the Obama administration.

BUSTED! NY Times Suggests Nikki Haley Bought $52k Curtains, Actually Purchased by Obama Admin

The New York Times found itself in hot-water from readers across the country Friday after the newspaper published an extremely misleading headline regarding UN ambassador Nikki Haley.

The Times published an article Thursday titled “Nikki Haley’s View of New York Is Priceless. Her Curtains? $52,701,” suggesting the ambassador purchased lavish curtains for her New York City residence.

“The State Department bought the custom, mechanized curtains for Ms. Haley’s New York resident during a time of cost-cutting,” adds the author.

It isn’t until six paragraphs later that the author admits the window dressings were actually purchased in 2016 and authorized by the Obama administration.

“This seems like a pretty important paragraph that we should get to the bottom of before calling them ‘Nikki Haley’s $52,000 curtains,’” writes a reporter for the Washington Post.

FAKE NEWS ALERT: NY Times Praises Hurricane Response; Doesn't Mention Trump

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.26.17

The New York Times published an article praising the federal government’s response to both Hurricanes Harvey and Irma on Tuesday; conveniently forgetting to mention one crucial player in the middle of the national recovery effort: President Donald Trump.

The extensive article, titled “Amid Chaos of Storms, U.S. Shows It Has Improved Its Response,” applauded the Trump administration’s handling of the deadly storms, saying the US has learned from prior disasters and has drastically sped-up recovery efforts.

Absent from the article was any mention of the President himself.

The Times largely credited the streamlined disaster relief to better weather forecasting, increased coordination between federal, state, and local law enforcement, as well as evacuation procedures and “hurricane-resistant building practices.”

“Hurricanes Harvey and Irma may have revealed a largely unnoticed truth often buried under the news of unfolding tragedy: The United States appears to be improving in the way it responds to hurricanes, at a time when climate scientists say the threats from such storms, fueled by warming oceans, are growing only more dire,” writes the author.

“While the Homeland Security Department has been criticized as being expensive and bloated, it has also insured a system in which local, state and federal officials are inured to the idea of working and communicating together,” the article adds.
