New York - Study: Fox News Is Obsessed With Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

New York - Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s name is on the lips of nearly everyone at Fox News.

A study found that the New York City Democrat was mentioned 3,181 times on Fox News Channel and its sister Fox Business Network during the six-week period of Feb. 25 to April 7, or just under 76 times a day. Not a day went by when she wasn’t spoken about on Fox.

The liberal watchdog Media Matters for America, which did the research, called it an obsession and said the first term representative has become the network’s latest bogeyman, “someone for hosts and guests to demonize, knock down and refer to whenever grievances need to be aired against the Democratic Party.”

Media Matters for America did not analyze other news shows for this report. Its mission is to monitor conservative news in the U.S. media.

Fox has talked about Ocasio-Cortez’s advocacy for a Green New Deal, called her a hypocrite for using cars and has fed off her social media pronouncements. Fox’s Sean Hannity called her “the real speaker of the House,” instead of Nancy Pelosi.

Tucker Carlson has called her an “idiot wind bag,” a “pompous little twit,” a “fake revolutionary,” ‘‘self-involved and dumb,” a “moron and nasty and more self-righteous than any televangelist.”

Fox personalities like Carlson and Jeanine Pirro have called her “a bartender,” in reference to a pre-politics job. There are also derogatory allusions to her youth, like when commentator Brit Hume said that “she’s kind of adorable in sort of the way that a 5-year-old child can be adorable,” according to the research.

Asked for comment on Saturday, a Fox spokeswoman noted that Ocasio-Cortez, 29, has received plenty of media attention elsewhere, including prominent features in Time magazine, Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone and the Hollywood Reporter. Fox’s Laura Ingraham — who did a segment during the six-week period questioning whether Ocasio-Cortez would have to go to jail because of an aide’s alleged campaign finance violations — has invited her on her show and said she admired her political rise.

The congresswoman tweeted a link to the Media Matters research, adding the comment, “that’s how hard they’re fighting against dignified health care, wages and justice for all; and turning their fire power on the youngest congressional woman in history to do it.

“Too bad for them, because we don’t flinch,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote.

Beyond politics, Fox Business Network’s Stuart Varney illustrated another reason that Fox would pay so much attention to Ocasio-Cortez.

“We have an AOC segment every day, almost every single hour,” he said. “She’s good for our ratings.”

A man was driving down the highway when he noticed a state trooper trying to pull him over. He sped away. When the state trooper caught up to him, he said "Son, it's been a long day. If you can tell me one good excuse that I haven't heard before, you're free to go."
The man replied "I'm sorry, but my wife ran off with a state trooper and I thought you were bringing her back."
"You're out of luck then" said the trooper.
"Why?", asked the man. "Has someone else told you this?"
"No", the trooper replied. "Sally's in the back.

That's right and when CNN is obsessed with Mueller 24/7? That's better?
At least Fox News doesn't hiidr behind a fake veil re their potentially cal beliefs. Now let's look at NPR . It's suppose to be a neutral radio paid for by the tax payer. That's the point of it. Yet everyone knows NPR is a dem mouth peice. When they do interview a trump associate it's riddled with antagonism and hate. Just listen to Steve inskep on morning edition. And then they have their season campaigns where they ask for contributions while saying they not beholden to advertisers. But we all know that's a lie and a scam. They have NPR sponsors whom they advertise for. What's the difference?

Bottom line is people can hate fox all they want but all news media is the same . We the people have a right to have one station on our side. Nothing wrong with that

We can admire her rise, but with specific focus. Her jettison into the attention she gets is truly remarkable. But she commands this attention because of her extreme stupidity, hers and the "followers" who are are stupid as her. She mouths ideas that make her sound righteous, which are nothing beyond fantasy. Forget about how impractical or unfeasible. They are also based on the socialist model of the government taking over the world, with those in "power" being the only ones to live decently. This is testimony to the "Dumbing of America". Her distribution of wealth idea is horrible for everyone, except for her and the rest of the thugs.

We may use our tefillos to daven that she should be indicted for her fraud, and that anyone like her be unable to find enough idiots for votes to get anywhere near public office.

Reality: The entire Democratic party (with very few exceptions) jump onto her bandwagon without even looking (as example her green-new-deal that every Dem contender jumped on before anyone even new what it was about). So it seems self-evident that talking about this one persons is like talking about the Dem party. And she keeps this up non-stop. Latest report is that she used the anti-Holocaust poem by Martin Niemöller ("first they came for") to defend Rep. Ilhan Omar terrorist (and anti-Semitic) supporting speech. As Ben Shapiro puts it:

> “There’s something deeply disturbing about AOC making Holocaust references to defend an open and unrepentant anti-Semite who is merely being criticized.” it:

Basically they are constructively pretending that they themselves are the Holocaust Jews (and that today's Jews are the Nazis). How could one imagine that such continued re-writing of history - at our expense - should not continue to be top story?

AOC is a dumbass. Has no idea what she is ever talking about. Completely agenda driven to a fault. Should have stuck to the food& beverage industry. Her 15 minutes if fame will be up soon. She SHOULD be covered constantly by every conservative outlet to drive home her incompetence. If you are an AOC advocate, you and should get your asses out of the USA, and take the Muslims with you!

Why shouldn't they be obsessed with her? She is the face of the democratic party and the opposition to democracy. She is proving what is wrong with electing a waitress to congress. 25,000 jobs and billions of dollars in tax revenue lost because of her stupity. Anti semitism in congress and America has never been higher.

You're at it again. I'm Edith, not Archy. We agree often, but I posted without knowing that Archy posted anything. That's the three minutes. Check spelling, vocabulary, etc. Anyone that can analyze writing would know we are not the same person. If I disagree with Archy, which does happen, it is not about indecisiveness. Just two complete strangers that have never met.
