Maggi Haberman was born on the 30th of October 1973, in New York City, New York, the United States of America. According to the astrological chart, she has a birth sign of Scorpio and currently, she is 50 years old. Her full name is Maggie Lindsy Haberman and belongs to the American-White ethnicity. Similarly, she follows Judaism religion.

She was born to her parents Clyde Haberman (father) and Nancy Haberman (mother). Her father is a longtime journalist for The New York Times. On the other hand, her mother is a media communications executive at Rubenstein Associates.

Her mother has worked for a number of prominent New Yorkers, including Donald Trump. She has two siblings whose names are yet unknown at the moment.

Maggie Haberman – Education

Regarding her academic background, she attended Ethical Culture Fieldston School and completed high school in 1991. Later, she enrolled at Sarah Lawrence College where she earned a bachelor’s degree in 1995.

Professional Career

Maggie Haberman started her career in 1996 when she got hired by the New York Post. Following that, in 1999, the New York Post sent her to cover City Hall, where she became “hooked” on political reporting. In the early 2000s, she worked for the Post’s competitor, the New York Daily News, for three and a half years, where she continued to cover City Hall.

She returned to the Post to cover the 2008 presidential election and other political campaigns. Politico hired her as a senior correspondent in 2010, and she quickly became a CNN political analyst in 2014.

In early 2015, she was hired by The New York Times to be a political correspondent for the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign. Her reporting style as a member of the Times’ White House staff is shown in Liz Garbus’ documentary series “The Fourth Estate.” According to an analysis by British digital strategist Rob Blackie, Haberman was one of the most widely followed political writers on Twitter among Biden administration officials.

Reporting on Trump

In October 2016, one month before Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in the United States presidential election, Wikileaks revealed a memo outlining how Clinton’s team could persuade Haberman to place sympathetic pieces in Politico. However, subsequent pieces by Haberman about Clinton were far more scathing than the campaign had hoped for.

Similarly, she has been chastised for using a double standard in her reporting on the controversies involving the two presidential contenders in the 2016 election. Haberman and the New York Times allegedly covered Hillary Clinton’s email crisis far more extensively than the multiple controversies involving her rival Donald Trump, including sexual misconduct charges.

She published a book about Trump’s presidency named “Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America” in the year 2022. CNN leaked an excerpt ahead of its release, revealing that Trump intended to just stay in the White House after his November 2020 election loss.

According to a Guardian review of the book, she is “the New York Times’ Trump whisperer,” and the book contains “much more than 600 pages of context, scoop, and drama….it gives Trump and those close to him plenty of voice – and rope.” The book debuted at number one on The New York Times nonfiction best-seller list for the week ending October 8, 2022.


In 2018, her reporting on the Trump administration earned her the Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting (shared with colleagues at the Times and The Washington Post).

Similarly, she earned the individual Aldo Beckman Award for Journalistic Excellence from the White House Correspondents’ Association. In addition, she won the Front Page Award for Journalist of the Year from the Newswomen’s Club of New York.
