Willingly, the Boston Globe played along

Washington Times: "Warren mounts PR blitz insisting Cherokee claims never helped her career."

The headline in question originally noted that it was "complicated" whether Warren used a claim of Native American heritage to advance her career.  Then, as Instapundit speculates, the Boston Globe "got a call" and fixed the headline.  Now the new narrative is Warren lied about her heritage but Harvard didn't believe her anyway, so it's kosher.

"The atmosphere was a little fraught. Outside the hall, students held a silent vigil to demand the law school add more minorities and women to a faculty dominated by white men."

And we're supposed to believe "that her claim to Native American ethnicity was never considered by the Harvard Law faculty, which voted resoundingly to hire her"? How many times in the past have we seen colleges & universities fold like cheap tents when lefty student groups engaged in protests? I'm not buying it.

You know that Harvard has to say that ethnicity wasn't an issue at all. Otherwise it cheapens the whole idea of minority positions.
