Excerpt from The Western Journal, September 21, 2018.
-“Last Thursday, The New York Times wrote a story that now bears the prosaic headline, “State Department Spent $52,701 on Curtains for Residence of U.N. Envoy.”
However, when it appeared, the headline read, “Nikki Haley’s View of New York is Priceless. Her Curtains? $52,701,” The Hill reported. Haley’s photo also appeared with the story, which claimed that the spending was done at the same time the State Department was cutting back in other areas.
Even the initial Times story noted that the decision to move the U.N. ambassador’s residence was made in 2016 and that the purchase was approved by the Obama administration.”
