A reporter for the Detroit Free Press claims, without evidence, that Elizabeth Warren is telling the truth because the reporter’s Mom says so.
I wish I was kidding.
But I’m not.
Nancy Kaffer of the Detroit Free Press sought to debunk the “evidence” (she used quotes) that disputes Elizabeth Warren’s recent claim that she was fired for being “visibly pregnant.”
And how did she “debunk” the evidence?
Why she talked to her Mom about her experience as a teacher in the 1950s.
This is what passes for evidence at the Detroit Free Press?
How ironic coming from a paper with “Free Press” in its name.
The anecdotal claims of one former school teacher from the 1950s is not proof. Nor does it debunk the evidence that Liz Warren is embellishing her own experience.
Unless this reporter’s Mom was Elizabeth Warren’s boss, a school board member at Elizabeth Warren’s school or Elizabeth Warren herself, what the hell could she possibly offer by way of “evidence” that Elizabeth Warren is telling the truth?
Are reporters not taught logic in J-School?
• Elizabeth Warren claims she was fired for being visibly pregnant in the 1970s.
• My Mom said women were fired for being visibly pregnant in 1950s.
• Therefore Elizabeth Warren’s story is legit.
This is what is known as a logical fallacy.
Let me give you another example of this logical fallacy:
• Jussie Smollett claims he was attacked in a racist hate crime.
• There are incidents of racist hate crimes.
• Therefore Jussie Smollett’s story is legit.
See what I mean?
Are there no editors at the Detroit Free Press? Was there nobody who has the sense God gave a goat that could say, “Honey, interviewing your Mom about something she has no direct involvement in is not good reporting, nor does it debunk the video and documentary evidence that Warren is lying.”
But it isn’t just the Detroit Free Press that is using anecdotal evidence to “prove” Warren is telling the truth. I mentioned the other day, quite a few outlets are circling the wagons around Warren by making this same ridiculously illogical argument.
Do these idiots not realize that Elizabeth Warren herself has told more than one version of this event?
If you’re trying to prove that Liz Warren is not lying, how do you square that?
Was she lying in 2007 when she said she chose to leave teaching, have her child, take a couple years off and go to law school?
Or is she lying now with her “I am Victim, hear me roar” account that she’s peddling on the campaign in hopes of scoring points with the Pussy-Hat-wearing, cul-de-sac busybodies?
And how does this Detroit Free Press reporter “debunk” the documentary evidence the Federalist published this week?
Why, naturally, by reporting that her Mom said the school board wouldn’t come out and say Liz got fired for being visibly pregnant.
Problem is, Liz didn’t get fired at all.
Clearly Nancy Kaffer’s Mom didn’t read the documents the Federalist released. In fact, I can’t help but wonder if Kaffer herself even bothered to read them.
I read them.
But then again, I’m not a reporter.
Minutes from the School Board meetings show that the board voted to retain Elizabeth Warren as a teacher. In April 1971, they voted and approved issuing contracts to non-tenured teachers (including Elizabeth Warren). But in June, 1971, the board’s minutes reveal that they “accepted with regret” Warren’s resignation.
In other words, they wanted to keep her on. They voted to keep her on. But Warren chose instead to resign – which the board reluctantly accepted.
The minutes from the school board meetings line up exactly with Liz Warren’s 2007 account of that time, and not the confabulated version she keeps burping out on the campaign trail.
You don’t have to be a reporter for the Detroit Free Press to see that.
Of course, Nancy Kaffer doesn’t address Liz Warren’s own 2007 account. But then again, maybe her Mom didn’t see that video.
There is actual evidence of Warren’s dishonesty. And by “actual evidence,” I mean documented proof, not “I asked my Mom and she said this.”
When Stephen Miller (@redsteeze) called out the “reporter” from the Detroit Free Press for this nonsensical article, she got super huffy.
But still this idiot didn’t get it.
Would it please your sensibilities if I interviewed a woman who lived through the time period who I'm not related to? You'll also note I interviewed a history professor. She's a woman too, tho, so that may discredit her in your eyes.— Nancy Kaffer (@nancykaffer) October 11, 2019
Ah, yes. The “you’d have to be a sexist misogynist to not believe my Mom and this woman professor who have no first-hand knowledge of Elizabeth Warren’s story” argument.
Color me shocked.
Or.. Hear me out.. These stories have absolutely nothing to do with the fact Elizabeth Warren is embellishing her own story, proven by documents as well as her own past statements on tape. Maybe try looking into THAT story, like journalism. Sound good?— Stephen Miller (@redsteeze) October 11, 2019
Other women experiencing something Elizabeth Warren says happened to her, does not mean Warren is telling the truth.. This isn't hard. Again what is your job?— Stephen Miller (@redsteeze) October 11, 2019
"Something happened to women that Elizabeth Warren says happened to her but has been proven to not have happened to her, so Elizabeth Warren's story is true"— Stephen Miller (@redsteeze) October 11, 2019
This is really a sight to behold.
I watched that exchange unfold on Twitter and honestly could not believe what I was seeing.
This is how desperate the so-called Free Press is to shield and protect Elizabeth Warren from herself.
Like I said earlier this week, not since Barack Obama have we witnessed such flagrant apologists for a Presidential Candidate.
Did these guys even run this kind of interference for Hillary Clinton? I’ll have to check the Detroit Free Press archives to check.
Or, I’ll ask my mom.
But what makes this entire thing so outlandish is this reporter doesn’t have a single clue as to why her “story” is garbage.
How did she ever get a job at a newspaper?
Interestingly enough (though hardly surprising) the Warren campaign is emboldened by the news media’s willingness to explain away her contradictory stories by the use of anecdotal accounts.
Clearly Team Warren feels completely secure in the knowledge that the media will provide cover fire.
So secure, in fact, her campaign actually tweeted this:
Honestly, at first, I thought this was a parody account.
“Believe pregnant women?” Sorry, pregnant people.
So you get that?
The evidence that Liz Warren is telling the truth about getting fired for being “visibly pregnant” is that pregnant women never lie and you must believe them.
Sorry, pregnant people don’t lie and you must believe them.
After Liz took that disastrous DNA test, most folks with half a brain figured she wouldn’t be so stupid as to dive in to the 2020 race.
How do you live down such a monumental fraud?
Well, apparently Liz’s answer to that question was to start telling yet another monumental lie to distract people from the Native American lie.
Meanwhile, the same so-called “free press” that ran interference for Liz and her DNA debacle are tripping all over themselves to run interference for her once again.
These guys just can’t stop going out of their way to prove President Trump right.
They really are corrupt, dishonest, and fake.
And they are willing to go to such clownish lengths to prove it.
I’ll close with these salient points from Jim Treacher:
If you don't care whether they're being falsely accused, I hope you're never falsely accused of bigotry. And then scolded when you protest your innocence, as if you're somehow denying bigotry exists.— Huell Babineaux did nothing wrong (@jtLOL) October 11, 2019
Trump has broken their brains so badly, they'll latch onto anybody they think will free them from him. But this crap isn't convincing anybody who isn't already voting Democrat no matter what.— Huell Babineaux did nothing wrong (@jtLOL) October 11, 2019
