Did The Media Miss The Mark On Warren’s DNA Reveal?

For years, Sen. Elizabeth Warren has been dogged by questions about her ethnic heritage — specifically, her claim that she has Native American ancestry and whether that may have led to favorable treatment from schools and employers. But Warren’s attempt to put that question to rest this week only seemed to provoke additional media scrutiny.

On this week’s edition of Beat the Press, Emily Rooney was joined by former CNN White House Correspondent Dan Lothian, Tom Fiedler of Boston University, Dan Kennedy of Northeastern University and Joanna Weiss of Experience Magazine.
