Maggie Haberman is at the top of "trending" on Twitter, over that Hope Hicks NYT piece.

Eventually, she will learn what works and what doesn't...maybe.

1. Can you please link the thread on this? Remember, NYT is one of the most impossible paywalls

for most of us, so I doubt I'm alone in not having any idea what you are talking about...

Thanks~!

3. Yes, please!

Some us of this morning don't know what's written in "that Hope Hicks piece". Could the OP please perhaps offer a little one-sentience summary?

5. Hope Hicks Left the White House. Now She Must Decide Whether to Talk to Congress.

Blow-back has been over:

1). Use of what critics of the piece are calling the "glamour shot" photo used in the article, and

2). Speculation over whether she will defy the subpoena.

I'm not going to regurgitate all of the nuances over the "controversy" surrounding the article...those have been the two main objections. Sort of "will she, won't she" gossip rag patter versus "the esteemed award-winning journalism of the NYT."

And since I'm bound by the four paragraph rule, these are the first four paragraphs.


Hope Hicks Left the White House. Now She Must Decide Whether to Talk to Congress.

By Maggie Haberman
May 23, 2019

One of the best-known but least visible former members of President Trumpís White House staff is facing an existential question: whether to comply with a congressional subpoena in the coming weeks.

The aide, the former communications director Hope Hicks, who left the White House with an enduring mystique that inspired countless news media profiles, is now a private citizen living in California. One of the presidentís original campaign aides, she went on to become one of his closest advisers while managing to maintain a personal relationship with him, his daughter Ivanka and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

But she has not completely left her time in the White House behind: She appears on more than two dozen pages in the report by the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, mostly in the second volume, which deals with allegations of obstruction of justice against Mr. Trump.

Like few others in the White House, Ms. Hicks was witness to some of the presidentís angriest moments and most pointed directives about the investigations into the Trump campaign and its contacts with Russians in 2016. Her dilemma now is how to respond to House Democrats, who have grown frustrated and increasingly aggressive in the face of a sweeping decision by the Trump administration, and the Trump Organization, to oppose such subpoenas.

7. Haberman got her ass kicked over the media landscape because of her lying for Hicks, by

Empty Wheel's Marcy. [A great 'close reader']

Would be interesting to know how NYT's editors handle that.

8. On Twitter, people were mocking

Habermanís characterization of Hicksí choice to comply with the subpoena as Ďexistentialí. Pretty funny stuff

10. This 'anti-Haberman' nonsense is not objective. It's funny but I've heard her with my own ears

 

PLENTY of times slam rump or whomever. Lack of objectivity is REAL THING EVERYWHERE.

This thread is LADEN with it.
