Pocahontas Fake News Tolerance

Senator Elizabeth Warren has been referred to as Pocahontas by President Donald Trump. This is not a racial slur as some of the mainstream media would have you believe. This is in reference to Ms. Warren’s claims of Native American ancestry that are in question here. The way the networks have not covered the issue makes them peddlers of misinformation through omission. Read on.

As Written By Brent Bozell for Townhall:

The network news divisions boast about how much they care about the truth and then rage against President Trump when he calls them makers of “fake news.” But when it comes to the politicians they adore, especially those they wish would run for president, the truth takes a back seat.

Exhibit A right now is Elizabeth Warren, who falsely claimed in a professional directory to be descended from Cherokee Indians, so as to be listed as a minority when she was hired as a professor. When Trump makes fun of her by calling her “Pocahontas,” the networks get oh so upset and call it a “racial slur.” But they don’t seem to care one iota about how American Indians feel regarding white people who take on a fake minority identity.

The story broke during Warren’s 2012 campaign against then-Sen. Scott Brown in Massachusetts. In May, liberal writer Garance Franke-Ruta summarized for The Atlantic: “the progressive consumer advocate has been unable to point to evidence of Native heritage except for an unsubstantiated thirdhand report that she might be 1/32 Cherokee. Even if it could be proven, it wouldn’t qualify her to be a member of a tribe.” So a Senate candidate was committed a race-based fraud. CBS broadcast programs touched the story once.

In June, Nancy Cordes reported that Warren said her relatives told her of her Cherokee background. Then, Cordes aired this double-lie sound bite from Warren: “I know my family’s heritage. It’s also been clear from the very beginning that I never got any special breaks from it.” If she knew her family heritage, why couldn’t she document it? Why invent the heritage if not to derive advantages from it…..
