Her stock is going up in my book.
Sounds like someone with a spine, something the Democratic Party has lacked for most
Of my lifetime.

Warren is on fire:

"No one has been tougher on Wells Fargo than myself," Treasury official Joseph Otting says during testimony.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren: "You mean at the OCC? That's a low bar"

Otting: "I would disagree with that. I find that insulting"

Warren: "Good!

Warren, like AOC will never go on a platform which is not fawning over her. I am not even talking about balance platforms - they need to be assured the platform is going to be embracing them. That is fine with me. Keeps them as marginalized figures and tends to make them go even further left to appeal to that audience.

She is more than willing to speak to Trump voters; she just doesn't want to do it through the corrupt venue of Fox News. Good for her.

I like Warren. I think she would be a better Consumer Protection Czar than President, but whatever.

One thing that has for me always underscored the economic illiteracy of Republicans is our GDP is 70% consumer spending, but they oppose any and all consumer protections.
They have no problem slaughtering the goose that laid the golden egg.

She is at what 8% among the DNC? Great strategy if her goal is come in 5th place in a historically weak field for the Dems and ensure her platform does not get exposure on a national level.

That said, I want her to gain some steam so she doesn't quit before the Dem debates. That is going to be glorious. With Warren thinking her appeal is offering free stuff to black/brown/poor people - she will force Biden to do the same. She will ensure the entire Dem party to admit that they are for open borders, free medical care, free college, the Green New Deal, and reparations. That will go over like a lead balloon with middle America. please, bring it on.

She's afraid of helping to legitimize a pretend News Station that puts its pundits on stage with Trump at rallies to support him.

News Stations don't do that. Fox does.

Fox News also completely ignores major stories.

CNN and MSNBC may not broadcast anti-Obama stories all day long but they at least report them. Fox ignores them completely. For example, Jared and Ivanka using private email addresses, commercial email addresses, and WhatsApp to conduct official business. Fox never aired the story despite it being broadcast everywhere and confirmed by the White House. Instead they ran a story on Hillary using private email servers 6 years earlier...again.

So no, until Fox becomes a News Station, no one should go on them.

Typical Liberal "If you don't agree with my opinion then you are scum". Liberals hate white people, Israel, and freedom so Cons call them out for it by way of their media outlets. Just like Liberals love to call out Fox for its Republican views. Both sides do it, so only ignorant people who feel their opinions are better than everyone else would actually attack any news outlet for doing things that they all do. Hypocrisy is terrible on the Left these days.

If you actually read what she said about this, you'd know. She thinks leftists going on Fox News gives the network plausible deniability as to its status as a rightwing hate machine, which in turn allows it to sell itself to more mainstream advertisers and further propagate its largely harmful content.

"If you don't agree with my opinion then you are scum".

What is this garbage? You are only "scum" if you act like scum. And Republicans act like scum a lot. Democrats..not so much (not that they haven't).

Have you even listened to your SCUMMY President?

Maybe you don't understand what scummy behavior is. Watch your President. His behavior is atrocious. The perfect example of scummy. No other scum rises above his scum. He is the Cream of the Scum!!

Promoting violence against Others, separating families and locking kids in cages, banning immigrants because of their religion, creating enemies lists, creating fake emergencies, Obstructing justice, Lying to congress, insulting everyone he does not like... or who do not agree with him.

If you do not agree with Trump then how does he treat you?

Scummy!

Both sides do it, so only ignorant people who feel their opinions are better than everyone else would actually attack any news outlet for doing things that they all do. Hypocrisy is terrible on the Left these days.

#18 | Posted by humtake

Both sides do NOT do it and you are the direct result of Fox News propaganda...

But...It's ok!

I used to give money to both the DNC and the DCCC; but no more, as they are buying corporate whores with our money. I will spend that money to far better purpose, on beer and weed, instead.

She should have agreed to do the town hall then spent the entire time offering evidence of fox's bias and racism.
No matter what question was asked.

That would make a lot of headlines.

Dems should do the same with a fox "news" debate.
