Native American Journalists Accuse HuffPo of ‘Ethical Negligence’ in Coverage of Warren’s DNA Gaffe

The Native American Journalist Association (NAJA) issued a statement Wednesday accusing the HuffPo of engaging in “ethical negligence” by writing an article downplaying native anger over Senator Elizabeth Warren’s release of a DNA test.

HuffPo‘s Jennifer Bendery suggested in the article, published last week, that much of the perceived native backlash to Warren’s attempt to legitimize her claims of Native American ancestry was manufactured by hostile media outlets.
