[Warren Report #49-2020]
Joe Biden has the state of South Carolina and Elizabeth Warren has Cambridge, Massachusetts. Her own personal firewall.
Warren lost her “must win” neighboring state of New Hampshire, but she seems undaunted as she continues her quest for the Democratic nomination for President. This Boston Globe article, written before the Nevada primary, has the lone “Squad” member for Warren, Ayanna Pressley, speaking at two Warren campaign offices for the Native Daughter candidate.
Warren’s minions are not trying to convince undecided voters to back Warren, they are trying to shore up the Senator’s own campaign workers. How bad must things be in the Warren camp that her “must win” state is her own? Does Warren think voters across the country will give her another look because she carried Massachusetts (assuming she does)?
Bernie appears to be running away with the nomination now, and Warren’s supporters probably can’t wait to jump on the Bernie bandwagon, so Pressley is probably trying to shore up voters so the campaign doesn’t collapse from within. Pressley’s other three “squad” mob is already with Bernie, taking the socialist message to the Democratic electorate. Nobody will say that voters won’t be given a clear choice between Trump and Sanders in November, or that the two parties are really just two sides of the same coin.
President Trump certainly doesn’t have the nicest, most pleasant personality. He is definitely polarizing. But Warren is not the emotional antidote to Trump’s presidency. If the Dems wanted someone nice, they should pick Amy Klobuchar over Warren every day of the week. But lucky for Republicans and our country, the 2020 election will not be decided based on personality but on actual important issues like immigration, the economy, foreign policy, freedoms, the rule of law, trade fairness, etc.
Since the Democrats control the American educational system, perhaps they want to start making “introduction to capitalism” required in every high school in America, and then maybe they can pick up the pieces in a few years after the November results.

Grading articles for bias is subjective. We hope that with widespread participation, we can give the reporters and editors at the Boston Globe valuable feedback on their professional work. Here are our suggestions for grading news articles for bias. (We do not rate editorial opinion columns for bias. But we do analyze the Boston Globe for overall editorial balance.)
Consider whether the article is completely free of bias (a grade of 10 or A), has been mostly free of bias (8 or 9, A- or B+), has been biased but not terribly or where the bias did not hurt the integrity of the underlying information (7 or 6, B or B-).
If the article was fairly biased overall, but subtle; or where the bias was particularly prominent but isolated to a single section, give the article a 5 or 4 (C+ or C). If the article was very biased but perhaps not intentionally so, perhaps a C- (3) would be deserved.
If the article was extremely prejudiced with major misstatements of fact, intentionally misleading, or ignored well known facts to advance a false narrative, give the article a D or F (2 or 1).
