Hey, What Happened To The E-Dubs Fraud Story?

It's now been a month since I wrote about irresponsible national right-wing smear reporting on Elizabeth Warren. As you might recall, the article centered primarily on charges of academic fraud, and also told of attacks on a Warren staffer. Several of the smearers I mentioned fired back, preposterously claiming that my article was really about the Cherokee heritage controversy; I responded, telling them essentially to put up or shut up about the actual smears in the article.

As I say, it's been a month. I'd have to conclude that the answer has been "shut up."

I'm not aware of any subsequent reporting, commentary, or reiteration of either of those two smears since my article appeared -- certainly not at, the Washington Free Beacon, or Legal Insurrection, which were the ones peddling them most prominently before. 

Most notable is the Breitbart site's silence, where we still await parts 3 and 4 of the promised 4-part series by Michael Patrick Leahy about the big Warren scientific fraud scandal. Part 1 ran on June 11; Part 2 on June 25.
