Just when you thought the New York Times couldn’t get any more biased and pathetic they completely outdo themselves once again. This time with a ridiculous hit piece on Nikki Haley and her curtains.
Yes. Her curtains.
Nope, not even making that up.
Nikki Haley’s View of New York Is Priceless. Her Curtains? $52,701. https://t.co/Y8k6QXeQhs

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.
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.
Stay classy, NYT.
completely dishonest tweet. It says in YOUR OWN STORY that the purchase was made during the Obama Administration and Haley had no say in the matter.

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.
I’m sure NYT covered the obscene expenditure at length when it actually happened 🧐

This is what hack journalism looks like. Read past the headline. Curtains were ordered in 2016 during Obama administration. https://t.co/einBBixEmJ

CNN is probably envious.

or dont care.
The purchase was made during the Obama Administration?

Why people distrust the NY Times, Part 8,967,465. Breathlessly announces curtains in Nikki Haley's official residence cost $52,701 at a time of "deep budget cuts." Forgets to mention curtains had been ordered in 2016 by Obama admin. #FakeNews #Hackeryhttps://t.co/arXHzUAQpy

Obama admin buys them and she gets the blame. Seems legit!
— SarahinTN (@sarahin_tn) September 14, 2018
But… she didnt purchase the curtains. Did this story run during the Obama years, when the curtains were purchased, too?
— Susan_Wright [Insufficiently Partisan] (@SweetieWalker) September 14, 2018
That would be a big ol’ NO.

Weirdest hit piece on Nikki Haley — for a decision reportedly made during the Obama administration…
