Media Ignores Warren’s Claim that Democratic Party’s Leader is ‘Grassroots’

In an interview on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters asked [1] Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D.-Mass.) to identify the leader of the Democratic Party.

Warren’s response, which was not picked up by the media’s home webpages (ranging from ABC News, CBS News, CNN to NBC News), was “the grassroots.”

“I mean, you can either get in front of it and call it a parade, or you can stand to the side and be left behind.”

Host Mika Brzezinski told Warren to say, “say me,” or for the senator to identify herself as the leader of the Democratic Party.
