Reporters who quote ums and ahs only make themselves look bad

Here's an interesting example of how journalists sometimes use a version of the facts to support faleshoods. Check out the following, posted by Daily Mail reporter David Martosko, quoting a teenager on Trump's use of the racist "Pocahontas" slur. At the Elizabeth Warren rally I asked a 17-year-old supporter who will vote next year to comment on Trump's "Pocahontas" nickname for the senator. This is a verbatim transcript of her answer. "I think that it's really hypocritical because not only is h...

Bernie Sanders' "Thurgood Marshall Plan for Public Education" will desegregate schools, defund charters, pay teachers, end the school-to-prison pipeline

Bernie Sanders has released A Thurgood Marshall Plan for Public Education, a detailed and bold suite of public education reforms reminiscent of the kinds of policy planks being laid down regularly by rival candidate Elizabeth Warren (I'm a donor to both Sanders' and Warren's campaigns). The plan -- a pun on the Marshall Plan for rebuilding Europe after WWII -- is also a tribute to Thurgood Marshall, the attorney who successfully argued for school desegregation in the landmark Brown v Board ...

Trump Swamp: Interior Sec. Calls Corporations He Regulates ‘My Clients… My Former Clients’

The American Prospect’s David Dayen late last week noted what he called President Donald Trump’s “most nakedly corrupt tweet”: an appeal to Congress to reject a bill giving tribal sovereignty over 321 Interior-Department-controlled acres to the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe in Massachusetts. Or as the President described it, “a special interest casino Bill, backed by Elizabeth (Pocahontas) Warren.” The tribe wants to build a casino on the land, which would be just minutes away from two nearby compe...

Elizabeth Warren's bold, risky, well-intentioned plan to improve health outcomes for African-American mothers giving birth

African-American women suffer a much higher level of maternal mortality than the national average, and Elizabeth Warren has proposed a bold -- but high-risk -- plan to incentivize hospitals to root out the institutional, systemic racism that produces these terrible outcomes. Under Warren's proposal, hospitals that continue to produce higher-than-average levels of maternal mortality for African-American patients will lose funding; while hospitals that improve will get bonuses. As Warren twee...

Warren says no to Fox News town hall -- it's a "hate-for-profit racket"

Senator Elizabeth Warren didn't accept an invitation to a Fox News town hall because she says the company is  “a hate-for-profit racket that gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracists.” From The Washington Post: “I’ve done 57 media avails and 131 interviews, taking over 1,100 questions from press just since January,” she wrote. “Fox News is welcome to come to my events just like any other outlet. But a Fox News town hall adds money to the hate-for-profit machine. To which I say: hard pass.” ...
