NEW YORK SLIMES: Paper Targets Nikki Haley For Expensive Curtains At State Department – Which Were Bought By Obama Admin

The New York Times is running an incredibly deceptive story which was clearly meant to be a hit piece on UN Ambassador Nikki Haley. This was low and dishonest even for them.

Take a look at the story:

State Department Spent $52,701 on Curtains for Nikki Haley’s Residence

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.

The residence, in a new building on First Avenue, has spectacular views, and Ms. Haley is the first ambassador to live in it.

Four paragraphs later, we get this:

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.

Even Yashar Ali, who writes for the left wing Huffington Post is calling out the Times for this:

And Aaron Blake of the liberal Washington Post:

It’s amazing that the NYTs hasn’t corrected the piece or taken it down. They have no shame.
