    New York Times writes hit piece on Nikki Haley's (wait for it) CURTAINS!

    From the New York Times:


    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.





    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/13/u...-curtains.html




    There’s just ONE problem …


    A spokesman for Ms. Haley said plans to buy the curtains were made in 2016, during the Obama administration. Ms. Haley had no say in the purchase, he said.




    In the story itself, they admit Nikki had ZERO to do with the purchase of the curtains but they know their emotional readers will see the headline and run with it.

    It's Trumps fault, he should have stopped this in 2016 before he was president.

    Rep. Ted Lieu is FURIOUS about it, so furious in fact he wants an investigation into those curtains.

    @tedlieu





    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.

    @comradewong


    State Dept., suffering from budget cuts, paid $52,000 for curtains in Nikki Haley’s Manhattan apartment. Scoop by @GardinerHarris.
    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/13/u...-curtains.html … The rent is $58,000 per month. Taxpayer funded.

    ROFLMAO!

    (Unfortunately, many Americans, those on the Left, in particular, lack the attention span to get to the part about the Curtains already being planned. Hell, I doubt most of them can get past the headline. That probably takes them 15 minutes or so....)

    That's what they are counting on. I work with some people who only read headlines and never the actual story. They are so misinformed, it is ridiculous.

    On this actual "hit" piece the NYT can't even print a correction because the correction is hidden at the end of the original story. I received a letter from an anonymous person who was told someone that if one more person refers to the NYT as Pravda, Pravda is suing the NYT for damaging their reputation.
