Maggie Haberman Opens Cal Performances’ Speaker Series
Maggie Haberman has been covering Donald Trump for much of her decorated career as a political reporter – from his decades in the New York City tabloid headlines to his current contentious presidency. The Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, New York Times White House correspondent, and CNN political analyst shares her observations about the Trump administration’s combative relationship with the press, and the changing perceptions of journalism throughout the country. Haberman also discusses her award-winning investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential campaign, and offers a bird’s-eye view of our divided political landscape, outlining where opportunities exist for compromise and cooperation across the aisle.
“I get it from both directions. The left and the right, which I tend to think it means we’re doing our job. But I also think my job is not to be trusted by the politicians. I think the job is to be trusted by readers.”
�Maggie Haberman, ABC News
