Cherokees and Times-fil-A Edition

As the hardreading staff noted the other day, the Boston Herald reported that “Massachusetts Republicans looking to overshadow Elizabeth Warren’s turn in the national spotlight [at the Democratic National Convention] are releasing a video with Cherokees at a nearby reservation saying her heritage claims are ‘slapping Native Americans in the face.'”

The Boston Globe, on the other hand, was silent on the issue.

Now the Globe’s kissin’ cousin, the New York Times, has weighed in:

For Warren, Bad Blood over Ethnic Claims

Karen Geronimo, a member of the Mescalero Apache tribe in town for the Democratic convention, knows what she wants from Elizabeth Warren, the Senate candidate from Massachusetts: a blood sample.

“Someone needs to make her take a DNA test,” said Ms. Geronimo, whose husband, Harlyn Geronimo, is the great-grandson of the legendary warrior Geronimo.

The still-simmering controversy over Ms. Warren’s self-proclaimed American Indian heritage has chased her from the campaign trail in Massachusetts to the convention hall, resonating with a small but vocal constituency: American Indian Democrats.

But still no mention in the local broadsheet.

Hey, Globeniks: Isn’t it good to live in a three-daily town?

Even if this is a crap issue?
