Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Scolds CBS News For Lack Of Diversity

Just the other day, CBS News proudly announced their 8 person group of journalists who will be tracking and reporting on the 2020 election cycle. However, the newest freshman congress critter Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had problems with their chosen roster and decided to take on the role of media scold.

Needless to say, quite a few folks started laughing at her epically stupid take. And others, including some pretty decent journalists, decided to point out the numerous fallacies of her finger wagging.

The newly sworn-in congresswoman faced some blowback from other reporters over the criticism, including Josh Kraushaar, a politics editor at the National Journal, who said the New York Democrat had “another thing” in common with President Trump: “media scold.”

Well, Josh isn’t wrong. Ms. Ocasio-Cortez appointed herself as the diversity police/hallway monitor. Of course, she doesn’t stop to think that MAYBE the journalists on the list have prior experience covering politics and elections ..and a random black journalist might not? Then again, as we are seeing time and again, her thought processes don’t line up with reality on any level.

Heck, even her own party wants her to slow her roll…or even just SHUT UP.

You know, Whoopi was right to tell her to quit pooping on people and learn from those who’ve been around awhile.

However, with journalists such as Josh Kraushaar calling her out, good ole Alexandria decided to dig deeper and responded with THIS:

Oh boy. Where to begin with this.

A. Has she even LOOKED at the race/gender of major network journalists scattered throughout ABC/NBC/MSNBC/CNN etc etc? Ummm…NOPE.

B. No one was yelling about some ‘brown lady says a curse word.’ What people were and are yelling about was Rashida Tlaib’s using foul language along with deciding that her only goal is to impeach Trump. No one that I could see made any mention of race.

Yet Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went there with her ‘brown lady’ comment. Not a good look for you toots.

The young lady has already had quite the week. She’s spent time yelling at The Daily Caller because they are being mean to her. She danced in her office with Al Sharpton (I’ll spare you the visual – it’s icky), and has put forth a slew of bills  (well 3 anyway), yet NONE deal with the government shut down. Oh and she’s foregone her Congressional salary … NOT.

Alexandria spent a lot of time going after Josh because he called her a media scold. At one point she tweeted that she wasn’t calling for quotas, just better representation.

Except that, what she wants is, by definition …a QUOTA!

Not only that, but if CBS bows to her demand, who among the original group will be kicked off?

Alex wants CBS to make up a team of journalists that will include a black person because that will somehow ensure that the reporting will show that they ‘understand the country’ better. Journalists are supposed to just report the story. They are supposed to be neutral and unbiased. What Alex is demanding is that the CBS team be diverse and report from their biases.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez picked the wrong hill in this instance. It wouldn’t surprise me one bit if several journalists start calling her out for her idiotic stances.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has only been in office for two weeks and this is where we are. I don’t think there’s enough popcorn in the world to cover this show.

    It’s cool. Half self identify as black.

  • windbag says:

    Someone who thinks that a person’s race determines their ability to observe, comprehend, and report politics is a dangerous racist who should be driven from office.

  • Citizen tom says:

    I can’t really sympathize with CBS or the rest of the news media. They brought this nonsense on themselves. We are supposed to ignore race, sex, and creed in hiring decisions, but those guys would not do it. They pushed quotas for others, just not themselves.

    Look where the border mess is taking us. If the Democrats win and we cannot control immigration, what is going to happen? We will become a race/ethnic conscious banana republic. Get enough in unassimilated Hispanics in this country, and a white person won’t be able to hold a government position, much less elected office.

    If we are not choosy about who we allow to become an American, we will end up with a bunch of new citizens who first loyalty is to something else somewhere else.

    I love how their darling liberal extremists are turning against the media. The diversity police are coming.

  • AOC doesn’t need to be right or even make sense. She is building a brand name, and she appears to be succeeding.

    Observers who think Democrat establishment will control her should realize Dem establishment leaders are in their 70’s and at end of their careers. AOC is just at start of hers.

    a functional understanding of race in America
    hasn’t assigned a *single* black journalist
    So, how are those two counter-poised? What does being black have to do with a “functional understanding of race”? Unless by “functional understanding of race” you mean “black racial grievance-mongering”? Even then, plenty of white progressives are just fine at that.
    But, hey, you complain away. Now do that with … every other liberal institution.

    1000% more takes on “brown lady says a curse word” than an actual white supremacist in Congress
    Wow. The marxist derp is strong with this one. Wrong, wrong, wrong, and wrong. All in less than one sentence.

    What Alex is demanding [is they] report from their biases.
    Yep. Intersectionality requires that one only know one’s own and that you can’t know others – individuality, you know! – so you can only be spoken to authentically by others just like you (group identity!).

    I want to thank the progressives for showing me, again and again, that it is impossible to expect humanity to ever live in peace and harmony. Because the derp will always rise and destroy what beauty and freedom we have.

    Every time I read about this bint or see her photo I think of this song from the Wizard of Oz:

    ”I could while away the hours
    Conferrin’ with the flowers
    Consultin’ with the rain

    And my head, I’d be scratchin’
    While my thoughts were busy hatchin’
    If I only had a brain

    I’d unravel every riddle
    For any individual
    In trouble or in pain

    With the thoughts you’ll be thinkin’
    You could be another Lincoln
    If you only had a brain

    Oh, I could tell you why the ocean’s near the shore
    I could think of things I never thunk before
    And then I’d sit and think some more

    I would not be just a nothin’
    My head all full of stuffin’
    My heart all full of pain

    I would dance and be merry
    Life would be a ding-a-derry
    If I only had a brain, etc”

      As a member of the Scarecrow Guild Local #111, I find your comparison insulting and… ummm, other words meaning ‘bad’. I demand you retract your scurrilous analogy!

      • Jim says:

        I suspect members of the aforementioned Scarecrow Guild Local #111 actually have more neurons up top than Miss A O C aka dipstick of the year, even the Century.

  • Lanceman says:

    Jesus Christ, but this bitch doesn’t understand words or how to form a sentence. This bony skank is college ‘educated’.

  • I’d be more concerned that the batch of reporters looks so young, perhaps half of them could pass as high school students. CBS clearly doesn’t want experience and maturity on this team. It wants up-and-comers who provide the spin on the news that CBS executives want.

  • Bevo Francis says:

    She is an example of the “education” received by students raised by absent parents in the public school indoctrination centers the leftists have built.
