Elizabeth Warren may or may not be among Dems seeking that party’s nomination in 2020, but just in case, the Boston Globe is digging deep to try and put down one point of controversy surrounding the senator from Massachusetts:
An exhaustive review bolsters Elizabeth Warren’s assertion that her claim to Native American heritage did not help her win academic jobs, even though there is evidence Harvard took advantage of it after she was hired. https://t.co/W8qidxo7RJ pic.twitter.com/ol3mfFXo0c

And others in the MSM ran with it:

Harvard University's decision to hire Elizabeth Warren as a law professor in the 1990s was not based on any assertion that she has Native American heritage, according to a report by the Boston Globe. https://t.co/lOahttMgbi pic.twitter.com/GJ0MObUE79

Interesting how that’s reported:
That doesn't change the fact that she lied. https://t.co/7n8GtMZ2Z9

They are basically admitting that she lied but saying it doesn't matter because there's no evidence her lies helped her.
Clown World. https://t.co/jR1uiZGwtc

The question has been whether Warren’s claim is true or not, but now the goal posts have been moved to “did making the claim help her get jobs?”
We have now reached the "ok yes she lied but it's not really that big of a deal" phase https://t.co/OI3bmDH9XA

Where will the goal posts be moved to next?
Common sense suggests that if there were nothing to be gained, she wouldn't have lied.
Unless she's just a compulsive liar, of course. You may have a point after all.

If it wasn't a benefit, why would she lie about it? https://t.co/3rx2WU4MPV

Either she has Native American heritage or she doesn't. Either she lied or she didn't.
Nonetheless, we all know the media would ruin the career of any Republican who tried pulling this BS. https://t.co/wssFUOlJ1o

Imagine for a second the media twisting itself in knots to excuse a conservative who pretended to be a minority. https://t.co/gbWaeKuJpq

"No, but it’s complicated" is code for "yeah, pretty much" https://t.co/K3r2hKNSGA

What's the difference between :no but its complicated" and "yes"? https://t.co/WZn7QPJd2Y

Does the media have a tendency to run cover for Democrats? It’s not complicated.
