Meghan McCain decimated author Michael Wolff’s credibility on “The View” by rattling off a laundry list of errors in his anti-Trump book, “Fire and Fire.”
“You know, Michael, your credibility is being questioned. Trump said the book is full of lies,” McCain said before Wolff interrupted her.
“Let’s remember who my credibility is being questioned by,” Wolff retorted.
McCain replied: “Let me finish. The New York Times’ Maggie Haberman, New York Times’ John Martin, David Brooks, CNN’s Alisyn Camerota, Tony Blair, Tom Barrack, Kate Walsh, Anna Wintour — all denying quotes [from your book].”
“[You wrote] The Washington Post reporter Mark Berman was in the Four Seasons the same time as Ivanka Trump — You admitted mixing up Mark with Mike Berman.
[You misstated] the age of the White House communications director. There are a lot of factual errors in here. What do you say to people?”
Wolff admitted that he had mixed up Mike and Mark Berman, but glossed over the other egregious errors in his book.
He shrugged off McCain’s question by saying all the liberal media reporters who are calling out his errors are just jealous because he had “scooped” them.
Wolff’s book “Fire and Fury” became an instant bestseller immediately upon its release last week because it feeds the mainstream media narrative of President Trump as a bumbling fool who’s unstable and is laughed at by his subordinates.
But the book has been widely trashed as snarky gossip riddled with countless factual errors. Even liberals like CNN’s Jake Tapper criticized “Fire and Fury” for its numerous mistakes and sloppy writing.

The New York Times scoffed: “He gets basic details wrong.” The New York Post blasted “Fire and Fury” as “blithe ignorance.”
Business Insider noted that even “the author says he can’t be sure it parts of [his book] are true.”
Meghan McCain summed it up best when she told Michael Wolff on The View: “This is why people hate journalists, by the way.”
