In the wake of Elizabeth Warren dropping out of the presidential race on Thursday night, NPR’s All Things Considered only the considered “opinion writers” who were feminist Democrats. The question from anchor Audie Cornish was “what did this primary season teach us about the state of things for women seeking the highest office?” Not considered: Shouldn't angry feminists actually endorse a woman for president before they complain about everyone else?
Nobody should be surprised that The View on ABC broke out on Friday into a denunciation of "patriarchy" and "misogyny" after Elizabeth Warren dropped out of the presidential race. After a few clips of Warren playing the Sexism card, Meghan McCain blamed the media. Can anyone cite a specific example of vicious anti-Warren news coverage?
On Friday, MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi bemoaned far-left Senator Elizabeth Warren quitting the 2020 presidential race, lionizing her as a “dream candidate” who “laid out policies the way a scientist publishes findings in a peer-reviewed journal.” In frustration, he wailed: “What’s enough? What does a woman to have to do?”
CNN's Abby Phillip appeared Friday night on the PBS journalist-roundup Washington Week, and was offered the floor to condemn all the sexism in the Democratic Party now that Elizabeth Warren dropped out of the presidential race. In January, Phillip mangled facts in a debate by repeating Warren's claim that Bernie Sanders told her in 2018 a woman couldn't win. He denied saying it twice, and she plowed ahead and asked Warren how she felt about what he "said."
If one were to judge by the reaction of the media to Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren's decision to withdraw for the 2020 Democratic primary, you could be forgiven for assuming she was actually popular. MSNBC campaign reporter Ali Vitali joined Friday's Andrea Mitchell Reports to continue the media mourning session where she lamented the downfall of the last serious female Democratic candidate and her plans.
Elizabeth Warren has left the race, and it's all our fault. Sniff! She was just too competent for us. Such was The Atlantic magazine epitaph for the Warren campaign written by Megan Garber on Thursday bemoaning what she thought was a public too unenlightened to appreciate the brilliance of the 1/1024th Native American candidate. It was titled "America Punished Elizabeth Warren for Her Competence." Republicans had nothing to do with Warren's failure to thrive as a Democrat contender.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren has dropped out of the presidential race, and The New York Times (which bizarrely endorsed both Warren and Sen. Amy Klobuchar) is bitter. The headline to Friday’s front-page “news analysis” by Lisa Lerer blamed sexism: “A Two-Man Race? Women Aren’t Surprised.”
On her Thursday show, MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell lamented the news that Elizabeth Warren has decided to drop out of the presidential election leaving two septuagenarian white males as the only remaining credible choices in the Democratic Primary.
MSNBC pundit and left-wing heroine Rachel Maddow spent Thursday’s show interviewing failed 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren and, predictably, a portion centered on Maddow’s inference that her lack of support among voters was sexist and a sign that the president “can’t be any woman ever.” At minimum, she fretted that this was “a death knell in terms of the prospects of having a woman for president in our lifetimes,” having left women “bereft.”
We always knew that once Elizabeth Warren had to exit the primary race there would be plenty of complaints that it was because she was a woman and America is a sexist place, especially from Hollywood. Though it’s pretty ironic to see the woke Hollywood crowd lecture the country about this.
By the end of her NBC Nightly News report on Thursday, it was clear that chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell was let down by Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) dropping out of the Democratic race for president. It was loaded with gushy declarations about how iconic the Senator was with no mention of her lies about Native American heritage.
Elizabeth Warren’s floundering presidential campaign grinded to an end on Thursday with the liberal Democrat finally dropping out. In recent weeks, Warren has been complaining about her media coverage, sending out a campaign e-mail that whined, “We can’t count on the media to cover our campaign fairly, so we’re taking our case directly to voters.”
