    I'm glad that Allene and ethics brought up and or commented on this topic.

    Referencing the Washington Post Article it should be noted that in conclusion or summary the WaPo Fact Checker awarded Warren's story and or claim as worthy of the Three Pinocchios value judgment. The following explains the rating system.

    Three Pinocchios

    Significant factual error and/or obvious contradictions. This gets into the realm of “mostly false.” But it could include statements which are technically correct (such as based on official government data) but are so taken out of context as to be very misleading. The line between Two and Three can be bit fuzzy and we do not award half-Pinocchios. So we strive to explain the factors that tipped us toward a Three.

    Thanks for posting the interpretation of what those three Pinocchios meant, Arc.
