FIRE AND FICTION: Reporter Tells Michael Wolff to REMOVE His Name from Anti-Trump Book

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.31.18

A prominent reporter featured in Michael Wolff’s “Fire and Fury” has demanded the author strike his name from future editions of the tawdry book, saying it “must be fun to write” whatever you want with “zero fact-checking.”

Jonathan Swan, a reporter for Axios who was mentioned in the book’s acknowledgements, blasted Wolff on social media Wednesday; telling the tabloid author that he had “no idea why you put me in your author acknowledgments.”

“Hey @MichaelWolffNYC: it must be fun to write and say whatever you want under the banner of “non-fiction,” with zero fact-checking or basic decency. I have no idea why you put me in your author acknowledgments but please remove my name for the next edition,” he tweeted.

Swan becomes the latest reporter to distance themselves from Wolff’s incendiary book.

Upon its release, even liberal journalists from the New York Times and CNN disputed multiple claims throughout “Fire and Fury,” saying specific conversations simply didn’t happen.
