Warren’s dirty trick against Bernie proves she’s the new Hillary, by Matt McDonald.
Saagar Enjeti of The Hill lays out the apparent Warren strategy nicely: ‘Progressives. Allow me introduce you to the media ecosystem that has bedeviled conservatives in the Trump age:
Step 1) Leak a bullshit smear sans any real confirmation to CNN.
Step 2) Have those same sources say the same thing to the NYT to create the appearance of a snowball.
Step 3) Never actually confirm that your smear occurred but allow it to float endlessly around.
Step 4) Now your opponent controls the story of the day and every single reporter will ask you/your surrogates about it.
Step 5) You are now branded as a sexist. You have no real recourse. Welcome to hell.’
