I don’t own a television; however, I do find radio more entertaining and informative. One program I try catching every Saturday morning on the all-news radio station KYW-1060 in Philadelphia is Smerconish, a rebroadcast of Attorney Michael Smerconish’s CNN 9AM to 10AM Saturday programs featured on KYW from 11AM to Noon.
Mr. Smerconish is one of the very few talk show hosts who, in my opinion, goes out of his way to play the role of “devil’s advocate” for both sides of issues, which he discusses with well-known guests in the news, plus authors, while he also features a weekly poll question about a specific “hot topic item” that his audience can vote for or against on his website with the poll results revealed at the end of the program. Audience voting crashed his website twice on September 8th, so he reports.
During the September 8, 2018 show, one of Smerconish’s guests was an investigative reporter for The Boston Globe, Annie Linskey who investigated Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts), colloquially referred to by President Trump as “Pocahontas” in view of Warren’s claim for being of Native American ancestry.
What flashed out for me during Smerconish’s interviewing Ms. Linskey was the fact she did her homework extremely well and even found that on Sen. Warren’s Application for Admission to Rutgers, The State University (New Jersey) dated Feb 28, 1973, Warren did something rather mystifying, in my opinion. Warren did not acknowledge her “Minority Group Student” status when asked, “Are you interested in applying for admission under….” to which she answered NO!
Need proof? Below is the form Smerconish has posted on his website for the September 8th show notes for Investigating “Pocahontas.”
It would seem to any person who understands ethics, especially one who has obtained a law degree, that deliberately obfuscating about one’s heritage when applying for employment as a law professor could become a serious credibility factor somewhere along their career path. Or perhaps, was early dementia setting in, in 1973? Warren’s Native American status – previously denied – apparently got her three prestigious teaching positions: University of Texas School of Law, the University of Pennsylvania Law School, and most recently at Harvard Law School. 
Is there any wonder why President Trump made the remark he did about Sen. Warren, as he probably knew of her apparent past indiscretions regarding using minority status to get ahead professionally?
Has a real credibility issue now surfaced for Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who probably will run for the U.S. presidency in 2020?
Can we trust her sense of uprightness, ethics and truthfulness?
Are her remarks lambasted toward President Trump analogous to the “pot calling the kettle black”?
Furthermore, is there a systemic trait surfacing, especially since Hillary lost the 2016 election, which embraces most Democrats: duplicity?
Remember the Obama birth certificate fiasco!
