Ocasio-Cortez bashes Politico article as 'birdcage lining'
« on: December 19, 2018, 09:43:02 AM »
Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., on  Tuesday afternoon took aim at a mainstream news article, dismissing it as “gossip.”

She tweeted: “One disappointment about DC is the gossip that masquerades as ‘reporting.’ This story has: - Not a SINGLE named or verifiable source - Only ONE on-the-record comment, which is a denial. My dad had a name for junk articles like this: ‘Birdcage lining.’”

The tweet was attached to a Politico story titled,: “Ocasio-Cortez weighs a new primary target: Hakeem Jeffries. Jeffries, the newly elected No. 5 Democrat in the House, has drawn criticism from the left since the party's leadership elections.”

The news outlet’s vice president of marketing and communications, Brad Dayspring, stood by Politico’s journalism: “It’s hard to know what the criticism of the piece is, since the congresswoman-elect doesn’t specify (nor has she or anyone from her staff asked for a correction). We stand by our reporting.”

“Here’s the truth. Life begins at conception. Government is too big. Our taxes are too high. And our car insurance is too expensive. President Trump is doing a great job. Facts matter more than feelings. The Second Amendment is self-explanatory. And as a doctor, I can assure you there are only two genders.”

No Brad. The Horse Faced Jackass was quite clear calling you out for manufacturing stories based on innuendo and rumor. That is all you do at The Hell.

Brad sounds a bit like a scorned teenage girl.

That Gal reminds me of a highway between Forth Worth and Dallas – no curves

She had a father in the home?  Isn't that perpetuating the Patriarchy?

I thought she was taking the week off to sit in a bath, read a book and smoke some Essential Dopes?
Don't call it the "Federal Government," that's an insult to the Founders.  It's a "National Government."
I will NOT comply.
