Fake News: Nikki Haley’s $52k curtains

The New York Times published an article this morning that curtains in Nikki Haley’s apartment cost $52,701.

Buried SIX paragraphs into the article is the FACT that the curtains were ordered in 2016 by members of the Obama administration. Haley “had no say in the purchase.” Yet, the article continues to call it Haley’s curtains.

Regardless of who ordered them, they’re not anybody’s curtains. They belong to the home of the U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. … whoever that might be.

  1. Even when they correct a story, they lie in a different way. Can’t help themselves.

    Here was the lead in the original version:

    The State Department spent $52,701 last year buying customized and mechanized curtains for the picture windows in Nikki R. Haley’s official residence as ambassador to the United Nations, just as the department was undergoing deep budget cuts and had frozen hiring.

    And here’s the new lead:

    The State Department spent $52,701 for customized and mechanized curtains for the picture windows in the new official residence of the ambassador to the United Nations.
