Maggie Lindsy Haberman (born October 30, 1973) is an American journalist who is a White House correspondent for The New York Times and a political analyst for CNN. She previously worked for Politico and the New York Daily News, where she was a political reporter.

Early life[edit]

Haberman was born to a Jewish family[1] on October 30, 1973, in New York City, the daughter of Clyde Haberman, a journalist for The New York Times, and media communications executive Nancy Haberman (née Spies).[2] A singer, in 3rd grade Haberman played the title role in a performance of the musical Annie at the P.S 75 Emily Dickinson School. She is a 1991 graduate of Ethical Culture Fieldston School, an independent preparatory school in New York City, followed by Sarah Lawrence College, a private liberal arts college in Bronxville, New York, where she obtained a bachelor's degree in 1995.[3]


Haberman's professional career began in 1996 when she was hired by the New York Post.[4] In 1999, the Post assigned her to cover City Hall, where she became "hooked" on political reporting.[5] Haberman worked for the Post's rival newspaper, the New York Daily News, for three and a half years in the early 2000s,[5] where she covered City Hall.[2] Haberman returned to the Post to cover the 2008 presidential campaign and other political races.[6] In 2010, Haberman was hired by Politico as a senior reporter.[7] She became a political analyst for CNN in 2014.[8]

Haberman was hired by The New York Times in early 2015 to be a political correspondent for their presidential campaign coverage during 2016.[6] According to one commentator, Haberman had formed as of spring 2017 "a potent journalistic tag team with Glenn Thrush".[1]

Her reporting style as a member of the White House staff of the New York Times features in the Liz Garbus documentary series The Fourth Estate. Among the daily frustrations of her work covering the Trump administration, she is also shown on camera in her role as a mother being interrupted during tense moments to take phone calls from her children, at one point declaring to her phone, "You can’t die in your nightmares".[9]

Personal life[edit]

Haberman married Dareh Ardashes Gregorian, a reporter for New York Daily News, formerly of the New York Post, and son of Vartan Gregorian, in a November 2003 ceremony on the Tribeca Rooftop in Manhattan.[2] They have three children, and live in Brooklyn.[10]
