This is an old tactic. "Some people say..." Who said that? You? Not you? Somebody else? No one ever said that?

They made a whole movie about this back in 2003, 2004 (2002?) it was called Outfoxed.

Bernie Sanders Could be the Next FDR

Tuesday night, I appeared on the Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell to talk about Elizabeth Warren, the rise of progressives within the Democratic Party, and what this means for Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign.

At one point in our discussion, the conversation turned to whether Bernie represents the closest thing to an Elizabeth Warren candidacy.
