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.
