CBS Finally Wakes Up, Covers Warren’s Sketchy Claims on Pregnancy Firing


[See NewsBusters for more.] CBS This Morning on Wednesday finally committed journalism and covered the latest example of Elizabeth Warren being forced to confront contradictory facts about her background. This time, it’s claims that she was fired from a teaching job in 1971 because she was pregnant. After ignoring claims highlighted by The Washington Free Beacon on Monday, This Morning’s Tony Dokoupil observed, “A series of reports have questioned the story she's been telling it on the campaign trail.” Reporter Ed O’Keefe even brought up Warren’s past lies about being a Native American: “Questions of the legitimacy of the story stem in part from claims she's made in the past about her heritage.”  O’Keefe played clips of the 2020 Democrat repeating her assertion she was fired for being pregnant: “The principal did what principals did in those days, wished me luck and hired someone else for the job.”
