AOC (socialist Cortez) campaign says press ban will end
Qchron ^ | 8/23/18 | Christopher Barca

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is both pushing back against and apologizing over last Thursday’s Chronicle article detailing her campaign’s banning of the press from community town halls in Corona and the Bronx.

In a series of tweets both last Friday and Sunday, the Democratic nominee for the 14th Congressional District claimed that the open-to-the-public meetings were specifically for certain groups of people.

“With this town hall non-story, it was designed to protect and invite vulnerable populations to public discourse: immigrants, victims of domestic abuse and so on,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote last Friday. “We indicated previously that the event would be closed to the press. Future ones are open.”

Eyes Cortez is learning that a friendly press is the only chance she has of actually winning in the future.

That BU ‘education’ wasn’t a waste after all...

That this ditz of a fraud has a freaking campaign team behind her, shows you how the Dems will do anything - anything - to hold power.

Glad to hear that population doesn’t feel vulnerable any more after one meeting. She’s such a miracle worker!

Really. While most democrats are so evil it’s frightening, it’s good to be able to laugh once in a while. AOC is Guam-tipping-over-stupid and every time she she speaks it’s pure entertainment.

Ignoring her would be raciss. :)

I think that press ban killed her. The "almighty" press hates being shunned.
