Ocasio-Cortez Leads The Charge In Leftist Temper Tantrum Over New CNN Hire

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is helping lead the charge on social media among her leftist brethren as they throw yet another collective fit over a recent hire over at CNN.

The network has hired Sarah Isgur, former spokeswoman for Republican Jeff Sessions and a noted conservative activist, to be their political editor for their 2020 election coverage.

Because heaven forbid a major news outlet actually do their job to adequately represent both sides of the political spectrum.

Ocasio-Cortez expressed outrage that CNN would hire a conservative when so many journalists had been recently laid off from the industry that is bleeding jobs.

“Sorry, didn’t get the latest memo after 1,000 experienced + qualified journalists of all stripes were let go w/o warning a few weeks ago and still looking for work,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, “are we still pretending that hires like these are evidence of a meritocracy?”

Former Obama NSC spokesman Tommy Vietor was similarly outraged.

“This is absolutely insane @CNNPolitics,” he tweeted. “Why on earth would you hire a right-wing hack to oversee political coverage in 2020?”

Former Obama campaign manager Stef Cutter demanded CNN’s media critic Brian Stelter attack the new hire.

“[P]lease report on her tweets,” Cutter tweeted to Stelter, “esp her tweets espousing anti-choice, anti-planned parenthood bulls**t. I have no problem w/people in politics transitioning to journalism, but not as political editor covering a presidential & no track record of actual journalism.”

Right here, in plain digital print for all to see, is what the left really wants. They do not want an objective media. They want a propaganda arm to constantly spoon feed them their own worldview back to them.

They don’t want to have their worldview challenged. They instead want to live in an echo chamber, the very same thing they accuse conservatives of doing for watching strictly Fox News, saying they need to get both sides of the story.

Isn’t that ironic? It’s almost hilarious.
