Author Behind Trump Admin Book Known For Making False Claims
If you’ve picked up a newspaper, logged onto the Internet or walked anywhere near a television set in the last week, you’re no doubt aware of the release of the book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.”
The book, which chronicles the first year of Donald J. Trump’s presidency from a “fly on the wall” perspective, ignited a media firestorm and was actually released days ahead of schedule due to what the publisher called “unprecedented demand.”
In a new video from One America News Network, leading correspondent Eddie McCoven dives deeper into not just the book itself but also its author – one Michael Wolff. Wolff has been a journalist for decades, having contributed to publications ranging from USA Today to GQ to The Hollywood Reporter and beyond.
Unfortunately for him (and his publishers), he’s also been something of a controversial figure for much of his career.
In 1998, for example, he published a book called “Burn Rate” about the financing, launch and ultimate failure of his own business, Wolff New Media. Despite the book’s bestseller status, it was criticized almost immediately – especially after 13 people said that he changed or even outright invented quotes.
Similar issues arose in a biography that he wrote about Rupert Murdoch, along with suggestions he made about the News International phone hacking scandal being a way to attack the aforementioned News Corporation chairman.
