Michael Tomasky on the Media’s Foolish Elizabeth Warren Witch Hunt


The Daily Beast has the article Michael Tomasky on the Media’s Foolish Elizabeth Warren Witch Hunt.

The appearance Thursday morning of this Suffolk University poll (linked to above) made me think: Well, this story line is about to wrap up. If more than two-thirds of voters don’t care, then that’s that. But no—still going strong! And now it’s not the loopy, right-wing, and pro-Brown Herald, which pushed the story first, but the Globe trying to play catch up. Yes, yes, it’s all in the public interest. What, you say, the public says it isn’t interested? Well, we’ll teach them what’s in their interest!

Not being a subscriber of “the loopy, right-wing, and pro-Brown Herald, which pushed the story first”, I had no idea that The Boston Globe was pushing this story so hard because it was “trying to play catch up.”

Thanks to reader RichardH for pointing me to The Daily Beast article that completes my education on this story.
