Massachusetts Senator and 2020 hopeful Elizabeth Warren was no stranger to spreading tall tales about her life, just look at her false claims of being Native American.
On Monday, The Washington Free Beacon caught her in another apparent lie. This time it was about allegedly being fired from a teaching gig for being “visibly pregnant.” The broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were so obsessed with President Trump’s impeachment that they failed to report it on their flagship morning and evening newscasts.
What made CBS’s silence even worse was the fact that they published their own report looking into Warren’s firing claims, first published late Monday night and updated shortly before Tuesday’s CBS Evening News:
Local newspaper reports from 1971 also present reasons for her leaving the school alternative to what she describes on the trail. The Paterson News, a local paper, reported that summer that Warren was “leaving to raise a family.” The next month, a story about the school board hiring a replacement said Warren had “resigned for personal reasons,” even though the board had voted to “appoint” Warren to the same speech pathology job that April, according to an earlier report.
According to the Free Beacon’s findings, “The Riverdale Board of Education approved a second-year teaching contract for a young Elizabeth Warren, documents show, contradicting the Democratic presidential candidate’s repeated claims that she was asked not to return to teaching after a single year because she was ‘visibly pregnant.’”

“Minutes of an April 21, 1971, Riverdale Board of Education meeting obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show that the board voted unanimously on a motion to extend Warren a ‘2nd year’ contract for a two-days-per-week teaching job,” the Free Beacon added in another blow to Warren’s claims. Shortly thereafter, Warren “tendered her resignation.”
The only evening news program to cover Warren’s dubious claims was the Fox News Channel’s Special Report. And they discovered another story she told which had conflicting accounts. Correspondent Peter Doocy reported:
But Warren has already made big changes to parts of her biography. Fox News has learned that Warren’s story, in 2017, about her mother losing her temper during a chat about paying for college where, quote, “quick as lightning she hit me hard in the face” is missing in a book three years earlier about the same set of conversations. Warren wrote of a more civil chat in 2014 where, quote, “My mother kept saying no. But then daddy surprised both of us saying let her try, Polly.”
In a statement to CBS, Warren’s explanation for the discrepancies was that she was learning to “open up” as a public figure over time. “After becoming a public figure I opened up more about different pieces in my life and this was one of them. I wrote about it in my book when I became a U.S. Senator,” the campaign statement said.
Instead of reporting on Warren, ABC and NBC touted polls that showed a majority of Americans supported the impeachment inquiry into President Trump.
