Elizabeth Warren 2020 Video Comes Out Swinging Against Fox News: ‘Echo Chamber of Fear and Hatred’

Elizabeth Warren sent out a video to supporters announcing that she is forming an exploratory committee — a first step before a 2020 presidential run — and it provides a good indication of the culture war set to emerge in the oncoming campaign.

The video is part biographical, tracking her ascent from law professor to senator. The rest, serving as a primer of the current political climate, comes out swinging against the president supporters in the media, particularly his Fox News boosters that Warren warns have taken the country down a “dark path.”

“Today, corruption is poisoning our democracy,” Warren says in the video. “Politicians look the other way while insurance companies deny patients life-saving coverage, while big banks rip off consumers.”

“The whole scam is propped up by an echo chamber of fear and hatred,” she continues, as a clip of Fox News star Sean Hannity flashes. “Designed to distract and divide us with people who will do or say anything to hang on to power, point the finger at anyone who looks, thinks, prays, loves differently than they do.”

Clips of Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham, White House aide Kellyanne Conway on Fox & Friends, former Trump adviser Steve Bannon and and current Trump adviser Stephen Miller flash.

“This dark path doesn’t have to be our future,” Warren says, as the video takes a turn towards a more optimistic crescendo.
