Few Washington journalists have their pulse on the Trump administration quite like Maggie Haberman, a veteran of Donald Trump’s New York tabloid world and of Politico, a media organization that helped reshape political reporting for an age without meaningful news cycles. Now with The New York Times, Haberman is helping readers get into the heads of a temperamental president and the West Wing aides trying to keep him under control.

Her reporting style is unusually analytic for the Times, but perhaps demanded by the times on which she reports. Donald Trump, Haberman often says, is not a normal president and requires some explaining from those who cover him. Her approach attracts criticism that – in explaining Trump – she is justifying or excusing his worst behavior. But it has also earned her the trust of sources, professional acclaim and a Pulitzer Prize in 2018 for her team’s coverage of links between Trump’s orbit and the Russian government.

After building a massive audience for herself on Twitter, Haberman announced this summer she would pull back from a platform she came to view as an “anger video game” that was corroding public discourse and transforming journalists into active players in their stories – amid an environment already hostile to the press.

“Most of us don’t want to be part of the story,” she said.
