Ocasio-Cortez hits NYT over story on Hope Hicks: It's framed 'as some Lifetime drama'

Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) criticized The New York Times on Sunday over an article on President Trump's former communications director Hope Hicks, saying their coverage of her decision to comply with a subpoena read "as some Lifetime drama called 'Hope's Choice.'"

The freshman lawmaker wrote two tweets echoing media figures' criticism of the article, which looks at Hicks' history in the White House and how she might respond to House Judiciary chairman Jerrold Nadler's (D-N.Y.) recent subpoena for her to testify as part of a sprawling investigation into the Trump administration.

"What gets me is news breaks that this woman is weighing committing a crime before Congress &it’s getting framed by the NYT as some Lifetime drama called 'Hope’s Choice'" Ocasio-Cortez wrote in one tweet.

In the immediate aftermath of shootings, media routinely post menacing photos of people-of-color victims + dredge up any questionable thing they’d ever done," she wrote in another tweet. "But when Hope Hicks considers not complying w a subpoena, it’s glamour shot time."

12. Nothing in the article says that Hope Hicks.....

"...is weighing committing a crime before Congress" nor has the NY Times called it a "Lifetime drama called 'Hope’s Choice'".

13. When she's right, she's right

I don't agree with every prescription AOC has offered to fix what ails the nation, but her critique of the right-wing biased media is 250% on point.
