The media (as well as Dems like Rep. Ted Lieu) have been all over the New York Times’ “Nikki Haley’s curtains” story and using a misleading headline to slam the Trump administration. The problem is that the purchase was planned in 2016 when Obama was still president. Here are just a couple examples of how the media’s running with that misleading headline in addition to the NY Times:
Nikki Haley spent $52,700 in State Department money on “customized and mechanized” curtains for her luxury apartment https://t.co/1H4896gv41

Fox Business Network’s Charles Payne knows how the #FakeNews circle of life goes in the mainstream media:
Why Massive Mainstream Media Distrust?
Headlines: State Department Spent $52,200 on Nikki Haley apartment curtains
Media Reaction: Outrage
Fact: Curtains order under Obama administration
Media Reaction: Crickets (looking for next outrage)

That sums it up perfectly!
It gets exhausting!

Exhausting for everyone except the MSM, apparently.
