Young Turks host says Warren has a media 'buzz problem'

A host and executive producer of the Young Turks, Ana Kasparian, on Monday told Hill.TV that Sen. Elizabeth WarrenElizabeth WarrenBiden plan would nearly double capital gains tax for wealthy: report Top general concerned about Afghan forces after US troops leave Progressives divided over efforts to repeal SALT cap MORE (D-Mass.) has an issue getting media coverage due to her professorial way of campaigning, adding that it is "hard to look at how she's being treated right now."

"I think that she has, unfortunately, a buzz problem," the liberal producer told Hill.TV's Krystal Ball and Saagar Enjeti on "Rising."

"The way she communicates really resonates with me," Kasparian continued. "I really appreciate the more in-depth, professorial way of speaking, but unfortunately, in the Trump era, buzz is everything, and the ability to fight is everything." 

"I see her as a fighter, but I worry that when it comes to optics, members of the Democratic Party are worried that she doesn't come off as a fighter and that she doesn't stand a chance against Trump," she said. 

"It is unfortunate because her policies are great, and she's taken the time to not only come up with the details but how to pay for her policies," she said. "It's hard to look at how she's being treated right now."

Warren was the first Democratic White House candidate to say the House should begin impeachment proceedings against Trump, and was soon followed by Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro and Wayne Messam (D), the mayor of Miramar, Fla.

She also unveiled her plan to cancel nearly all student loan debt and create universal free public college.
