NYT’s Maggie Haberman: Clinton’s Secretary of Propaganda? Strategy document reveals a “very good relationship [with Haberman]” and how HRC campaign has “never been disappointed.”

Maggie Haberman is well-respected among journalists and was nominated for multiple journalism awards, yet she willingly breaks the fundamental rule that upholds all of journalism culture. She was loyal to a politician. The SPJ’s code of ethics state journalists should “act independently…avoid political and other outside activities that compromise integrity….” The CAJ’s code of ethics state “ Editorial boards…endorse political candidates or political causes. Reporters do not.” When Maggie Haberman violates the core ideal of journalism, reporting independently, she cannot call herself the “watchdog of politics.” She is the lapdog of politicians.
