Like the proverbial bull in a China shop, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is on the rampage as she continues her relentless mission to become the new face of the Democratic party.
The 29-year-old freshman only arrived in Congress two weeks ago and she has already managed to alienate a good amount of experienced House members, push her socialist Green New Deal that will send taxes through the stratosphere and smear President Trump as a racist.
Now it’s not only the president who she is accusing of racism but major television network CBS which only last Sunday featured the former bartender and ersatz revolutionary on its flagship news program “60 Minutes” in an appearance that only fed her rapidly expanding ego.
On Saturday, AOC took to her lethal Twitter account to rip CBS over the lack of diversity on its just announced 2020 election coverage team by pointing out that there is not one black person included and scolded the big eye over the “unacceptable” lineup of reporters.
This WH admin has made having a functional understanding of race in America one of the most important core competencies for a political journalist to have, yet @CBSNews hasn’t assigned a *single* black journalist to cover the 2020 election.
Unacceptable in 2019. Try again. https://t.co/h7tmiBr9Fi

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y) criticized CBS News Saturday night for what she considered lack of diversity in its team of reporters covering the upcoming 2020 presidential election.
“This WH admin has made having a functional understanding of race in America one of the most important core competencies for a political journalist to have, yet [CBS News] hasn’t assigned a *single* black journalist to cover the 2020 election,” Ocasio-Cortez said in a tweet.
“Unacceptable in 2019. Try again,” Ocasio-Cortez added.
Her tweet was in response to another post shared by an associate producer at CBS News, Ben Mitchell, who shared a tweet showing the news agency’s 2020 election team of reporters and associate producers.
“It’s Official: The @CBSNews 2020 Election Team has assembled!” Mitchell said in the tweet, which also featured a photo of the 12-person team of media professionals.
Ocasio-Cortez’s race-baiting is indicative of the divisive force that her party has become in the post-Obama era but it doesn’t bode well for Democrats who regularly receive fawning media coverage when one of their own goes rogue and bites the hand that feeds them.
Not to mention that it is the same media that has made her into a celebrity and such ingratitude is not going to serve her well in the long term when party leaders decide that it’s time to apply a choke chain to the yappy attack dog which is coming and probably sooner rather than later.
