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

Elizabeth WarrenElizabeth WarrenBiden campaign says no VP pick yet after bike trail quip Biden edges closer to VP pick: Here's who's up and who's down Democratic convention lineup to include Ocasio-Cortez, Clinton, Warren: reports 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."
