We told you earlier that the memo seems to have gone out in the mainstream media world regarding the ever-evolving narrative about Elizabeth Warren’s pregnancy story that’s been shown to be an untruth. Here’s the USA Today’s in-kind contribution to the Warren campaign:
Conservatives have latched on to the changes in Warren's account or her leaving a job during a pregnancy as another example of a "made up" story, along with the now infamous claim to Native American ancestry. https://t.co/792dHekQ1w

“Changes in Warren’s account”? Nice journalisming there. And that approach sure sounds familiar:
"Conservatives latched" is a new one. https://t.co/NDLQZLhFgx

Is "latched" the new "seized"?

Give credit to USA Today for looking up a synonym for “seized” https://t.co/WrOfWHGMaN

Every. Single. Time.
Latched (another word for pounced)… to the truth? Good stuff, firefighters. https://t.co/p9R4WRVhJ0

No, they're just pointing out that she's lying.

Instead of just saying Elizabeth Warren lied again the media always has to make these stories about how "conservatives" pounce on them.

"Conservatives have accurately quoted her own words from a 2007 video that shows she is lying. Again." There, FIFY

It’s not a “conservative’s pounce” story. Try doing some journalism

Another article that just veers halfway through from "Conservatives have latched on to" the facts of Warren's story to "But many women have come forward with their stories of pregnancy and gender discrimination to show that they believe Warren" as if that is a rebuttal. https://t.co/jKbwxuHjWl

“It’s happened to others so it must have happened to Warren” is peak journalism this year.
