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.
