As Omarosa dominates the news cycle with her bombshell claims and recordings from the heart of the Trump administration, some of the most salacious stories from her new book "Unhinged" have been challenged by those who allegedly witnessed them happen.

Why it matters: Similar to the backlash to the potentially unethical reporting contained in Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury" earlier this year, the lines between fiction and fact may be similarly blurred in Omarosa's tome.

  • Pollster Frank Luntz said that Omarosa's hearsay claim that he had heard Trump say the N-word "is...flat-out false" and wasn't verified.

  • Trumpworld foe Michael Cohen said Trump did not take a note from him and eat it while talking in the Oval Office, as Omarosa claims.

  • Omarosa alleged that Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said that students at a historically black college that booed her last year didn't have the "capacity to understand" what the administration is trying to accomplish, per Politico. A source that was in the room told Axios' Jonathan Swan that Omarosa's claim is false.
  • There is no tanning bed in the White House, aides told the Washington Post, despite Omarosa's statement that it was installed at Trump's request.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) was defiant on Sunday, stating again that he would not resign even as more former aides have come forward with allegations of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior.

The big picture: Cuomo has denied all sexual harassment allegations against him and said that he "never inappropriately touched anybody." He acknowledged in a statement that "some of the things I have said have been misinterpreted as an unwanted flirtation." Some of the calls for Cuomo to resign have come from within the Democratic party.

New York Times columnist David Brooks' resignation from a paid gig at a think tank on Saturday is the latest in a flurry of scandals that America's biggest and most successful newspaper company has endured in the past year.

Driving the news: Brooks resigned from the Aspen Institute following a BuzzFeed News investigation that uncovered conflicts of interest between his reporting and money he accepted from corporate donors for a project called "Weave" that he worked on at the nonprofit.

America rebalances its post-Trump news diet

Nearly halfway through President Biden's first 100 days, data shows that Americans are learning to wean themselves off of news — and especially politics.

Why it matters: The departure of former President Trump's once-ubiquitous presence in the news cycle has reoriented the country's attention.
