Ocasio-Cortez Claims Fox News Hosts Not Using Her Full Name is Racist

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who uses Twitter on a pace to rival Donald Trump, had a tweet out this week celebrating her appearance on the cover of April’s “Time” magazine, which she takes as an affirmation that “in an America … all things are possible” when in reality it shows that the squeaky wheel does get the grease.

Most of her tweets, however, are defensive and usually take aim at her detractors. Such were the three related tweets she posted on Wednesday, slamming Fox News Channel hosts for using a shortened form of her last name. This is actually a common practice in journalism and is done with people whose names are (1) so familiar that their pictures appear on the cover of “Time” or (2) a mouthful to say: Ocasio-Cortez is six syllables and becomes cumbersome to repeat, which is why publications on both sides of the ideological spectrum have developed the habit of using her initials.

Naturally, she assumes malice on the part of Fox and ascribes an ulterior motive for this practice.

 

In a separate tweet she assumes “they‘re trying to be rude + wrong.”

 

But here’s the kicker: Fox hosts aren’t even doing what she claims they are. As Amanda Prestigiacomo of The Daily Wire notes, Tom Elliott, founder of the politically neutral Grabien, looked into Cortez’s claim and “found that over the last month Ingraham and Hannity have not once referred to the freshman congresswoman as ‘Cortez’ on their shows.” The same was true for Sean Hannity, whom she calls out in one of her tweets.

 

How do you say “making a mountain out of a molehill” in Latinx?
