Here’s Why Ocasio-Cortez Just Picked a Fight With CBS News

The freshman representative from New York’s 14th congressional district does not appear to be heeding Whoopi Goldberg’s advice to get to know her Washington surroundings before she starts “pooping on people.” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D), who was sworn in just a couple weeks ago, has already picked fights with several lawmakers, including several in her own party. For example, she protested outside Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office demanding she get more progressive on climate change. She then sparred with former Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-CT) over the future of the Democratic Party.

Author Roxane Gay agreed it was a “disgrace” that CBS’s 2020 staff had no African-American voices. Yet, other Twitter users defended CBS and suggested they were hiring not based on race, but simply who was best suited for the job.

Members of the media also pushed back at Ocasio-Cortez’s narrative, including National Journal’s Josh Kraushaar, who said she was no better than President Trump with her “media scold.”
