Certain media outlets are going out of their way to help Elizabeth Warren. This was perfectly clear during the last Democrat debate, moderated by CNN.
What these media folks don’t seem to realize is that they’re not doing her any favors.
The more people see them trying to engineer a win for her, the more they will reject her.

Warren launched her 2020 candidacy amid what should have been a much bigger scandal. Her false claim of Native American heritage only received the coverage it deserved after she announced a DNA test showing she was somewhere between 1/64th and 1/1,024th Native American.

She has dropped 3 points in Iowa since last week.

Expect her numbers to continue going down.
Especially if the media keeps trying to prop her up.
