By Bradford Richardson - The Washington Times - Thursday, January 4, 2018
This isn’t the first time author/journalist Michael Wolff has been accused of fabricating quotes.

A caustic gossip columnist more accustomed to taking down New York media moguls than Washington politicians, Mr. Wolff trained his fire on President Trump and his inner circle in “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” an incendiary tell-all that has the president and his supporters fuming.

In excerpts from the book given to outlets where Mr. Wolff’s byline regularly appears — The Guardian, The Hollywood Reporter, New York magazine and the British version of GQ — the White House is portrayed as full of disorder, backbiting and infighting.

The book, which will be published Friday after its release date was sped up to meet heightened demand, relies on what Mr. Wolff, 64, describes as “extensive access to the White House and more than 200 interviews with Trump and senior staff over a period of 18 months.”

Mr. Wolff’s witty, provocative style has earned him accolades over the years — as well as criticism and controversy.

He won the National Magazine Award for commentary in 2002 and 2004, the latter for a series of columns he wrote as a war correspondent in Qatar. He’s also the founder of the news-aggregation website Newser.com.

The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.

Michael Wolff said he has receipts: “I work like every journalist works. I have recordings,I have notes. I am certainly and absolutely, in every way,comfortable with everything I’ve reported in this book.”   Michael Wolff also said: “My credibility is being questioned by a man who has less credibility than,perhaps, anyone who has ever walked on Earth at this point.”

Isn't it odd what/who each of us is willing to believe?  
Some will believe the President (liar-in-chief) and his staff/mouthpieces, and others will believe a discredited "journalist" who is also noted for numerous lies and illegitimate stories.

I choose to believe neither!
