Why is The Boston Globe letting Elizabeth Warren decide whom it can interview?

Why is The Boston Globe letting Elizabeth Warren decide whom it can interview?

Elizabeth Warren’s daughter Amelia Warren Tyagi runs ACORN-successor Demos, which has promoted her mother’s political ambitions for years.

No surprise when Demos filed suit in May against Massachusetts, and then the Democrats who run the state promptly capitulated and agreed to unprecedented efforts to register welfare voters far and beyond what the law required even though the state was on record insisting it both was in compliance with federal law and specifically had addressed the concerns of Demos months earlier.

Yet the Warren campaign is playing hide the daughter, as reported by The Boston Globe (emphasis mine):

As chairman of the board of Demos, a liberal think tank, Tyagi was tied to a lawsuit filed against the state for failing to comply with the National Voter Registration Act. The resulting settlement, reached in July, called for the mailing of voter registration forms to welfare recipients — a move Brown contended was designed to get more Democrats on the rolls before the November election.

Warren’s campaign and Demos staffers say Tyagi was not involved in the lawsuit and that it had nothing to do with her mother’s Senate race. The Warren campaign declined to make Tyagi available for an interview, and provided only selective answers via e-mail to questions from the Globe about her biography.

It was, as I said the other day, a set-up to register a group of voters likely favorable to Warren, beyond what was necessary to comply with federal law.

Massachusetts should release immediately, as demanded by the Brown campaign, all the emails leading up to the settlement and the internal state analyses which supposedly justified the mass mailing.

And some advice for The Boston Globe — you’re supposed to investigate, not just take what the Warren campaign feeds you.

How about you go out and find Ms. Tyagi and interview her yourself?  You don’t need Elizabeth Warren’s permission.

Maybe you can ask Warren’s daughter, among other things, whether she ever claimed Native American status, and whether she considers herself a minority and woman of color.

“And some advice for The Boston Globe — you’re supposed to investigate, not just take what the Warren campaign feeds you.”

Well, yeah, but…

there have been many stories over the last few weeks detailing how the Mushroom Media has just handed the keys to their newsrooms to the Deemocrats…pretty much literally.

And nobody is bothering to make any bones about it anymore. They just admit it. “Yeah, so?”

So, Brown and some election integrity legal groups need to go after this via the courts. Could this be a good target for injunctive relief?

Sure seems like to me.

    Modern Journalism SOP: “It’s easier to copy a campaign press release than to investigate, ask tough questions or keep a ‘brain book’. As an added bonus, you are included in family photo-op days, press ‘mixers’ and it leaves you much more personal time. Finally, everyone likes you, no controversy means access to the candidate and your bylines explode exponentially.”

    I left the Fourth Estate 30+ years ago for this reason. I was trained and tutored by mean, crotchety, disagreeable types who trusted no one, least of all politicians or managing editors, who are all too often cast from the same metal, if not from the same mold.

    Post-Watergate, the wild-eyed, Progressive idealists came into the newsroom. And as it always happens, with time, age and circumstances, idealists all morph into ideologues.

      Right, Trooper.

      Plus, there is the whole, “Wanting to make a difference” meme that replaced, “Finding and presenting the facts” and “Know the truth, and the truth shall set you free” ideals.

      History tells us that the Progressive zenith under Wilson had the first American Ministry of Truth…pretty much literally.

      The Communists knew very well how essential control of the arts and the press were. This is why we got Gore Vidal and Walter Cronkite, prominent among many others.

      As EBL notes, the press should be doing their job. Problem is, they think they ARE doing their job.

        This fake Indian’s campaign is in-your-face corruption at all levels but not at all surprising seeing that it’s Massachusetts and the democrats contained therein.

        Scott Brown needs to address head-on and make no bones on what is going on.

        Don’t expect any help from the Globe or any other of MSM outlets. They are in cahoots with the democrats up to their eyeballs.

        Expect nothing rational from them in the months to follow…

They will, but only at the last possible moment, if and only if it looks like Warren will lose, to give themselves the tiniest possible figleaf.

Cowards! The Media has to stop carrying water for Warren and the Democrats and do their damn job!

Lieawatha say, “Me protectum papoose. Put her away in hidden tee pee. No speakum to press. Daughter with high cheekbones now makeum new Cherokee recipes for Pow Wow Chow II. Press no speakum to papoose – make brownface, small man Chief DeValue mad.”

Brown should be given a copy of the mailing list and go to work.

The Free Press is the watchdog of Democracy. The Free Press has gone from being the Fourth Estate to a Fifth Column for the Democratic Party. Therefore, we no longer have an institutional watchdog sitting vigilant. Could that be why corruption advances while truth is in wholesale retreat?

Do we have to wonder why the Progressocrats hate bloggers?

“advice for The Boston Globe — you’re supposed to investigate”

What do you mean? Have the Republicans done something evil again?

The fascist dems ,their never went away acorn groups et al have come completely out of the closet. The lavender on board press is their beard. Roughly half the populace is looking for a rationalization for voting for a party that is clearly destructive. It is senseless to look for sense where your opposition is fully infected with mental and immoral syphalis.

“And some advice for The Boston Globe — you’re supposed to investigate, not just take what the Warren campaign feeds you.”

Don’t hold your breath waiting for the Globe to show any journalistic ethics or integrity. Here’s why…the Boston Globe is a leftist Piece of “bill-maher” that is 100% owned by the “all the news that’s fit to fake” New York Times, which is 100% owned by the lunatic-left d-cRAT socialist party.

It would be great to hear her answer to whether she considers herself part Cherokee.

Does anyone know what the timeline is for records requests at the state level? Massachusetts must have a FOIA-type law on the books.

The Brown campaign (ordinarily I would say investigative journalists, but they don’t seem to exist anymore) should put in a FOIA request for all email communications within the MA state government regarding this sordid business.

It’s remarkable what people will put into an email, really. There’s a reason that email is called ‘the DNA of corporate crime’ – it can be quite useful for showing what people were really thinking at the time….

Victor Davis Hanson discusses Warren and her context.

I’ll cross-post this to the Tip Line.
