No, Elizabeth Warren wasn’t blocked from reading the Coretta Scott King letter

This week's column in the Bangor Daily News. The media is reporting a completely false story, despite full video contracting them:

New York Magazine’s headline read, “Here’s the Powerful Letter Senate Republicans Kept Elizabeth Warren From Reading.” CBS reported, “Warren had been forced into silence Tuesday when she attempted to read from the letter.” The Atlanta Journal Constitution ran the headline, “Reading of Coretta Scott King’s letter forbidden by U.S. Senate”.

The outrage is plentiful. But this story is false.

Warren was not prohibited from reading King’s letter. She read every single word of it on the Senate floor.

You can watch the whole thing on video from C-SPAN.

Most people know that, but it's become a "fact" in the lefty blogosphere.

They've lost their collective minds.

This is how much we miss the facts. I did not know she read the entire letter. I could not stand watching this mentally/emotionally challenged idiot and I am totally unable to put up with her whining, crappy voice so tuned it out.

Where are the Republicans on this? Same place they have always been...in the shadow of and admiring the the Liberal/Swine

Sorry Tom, most people don't

Sorry Tom, most people don't know that, They only know what they are told by the Progressives in both parties and unless you were watching C-Span's broadcast you didn't know it either.

The left controls the media

The left controls the media
the left has anointed Warren as the next great hope
The media thus must protect and serve Warren as told

I just went to the BDN site;

I just went to the BDN site; first off, after reading all the reports claiming the opposite, I had no idea Warren was allowed to read the CSK letter (turns out she did). That's troubling enough but, what is more alarming are the comments in response to Duston's piece. Despite the clear evidence (the full C-SPAN video of Warren delivering, word-for-word, the CSK 1986 statement), people are decrying that the BDN would publish "fake news". Many people, on both the political Left and Right, have become so entrenched in their own narrow beliefs that simple, incontrovertible facts are rejected out-of-hand. Not good for our Republic (that's right, I said it, Republic!).

The Empire Strikes Back

The Empire Strikes Back

Bruce something has to be worthy of a sticky why not this.

The important thing to remember about this incidence is that Sessions and the GOP are racists, otherwise they would have bowed to Warren and kissed her lily white ass or is she native American, ahh they are doubly racist.

There is a power struggle in America between the old status quo which includes the corporate media, the corporations, the US senate (includes most of the senators) , the international community ( means foreign nations getting a paycheck, protection from Uncle Sammy) against that lunatic Donald Trump and his Deplorable American Rabble ( who somehow was allowed to vote for him).

If it wasn't for the fact that the Donald had been elected under the GOP party and by necessity needs to fill positions with some GOP stalwarts, the likes of Dutson and McConnell, would have staged a violent coup by now. I guess Trump has made a deal with the GOP where he will compromise.

The faction that "I'm with her" lost, this includes her large corporate donors and international oligarchs, and they will fight Donald and the Deplorables tooth and nail because they at some point may become irrelevant. Meaning they may be somewhat unable to do everything that they wanted as in the past 50 years. That is unless they can co-op Donald, which they can by putting constant pressure on him. We can see it already.

GotNews reported Sunday that one of the primary sources of the series of leaks that were designed to undermine the Trump Administration and his presidency have been coming from none other than #NeverTrumper Kate Walsh. She is being investigated as one of the primary persons of interest that have been distributing highly confidential information to sources such as The (Failing) New York Times, and others.
