AOC Blasts Factcheckers for “False Equivalency” and “Bias”

For Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), consistency is beside the point in the midst of her nascent socialist revolution. She blasted PolitiFact and The Washington Post for what she called “false equivalency” and “bias” in their criticism of her political stances and arguments with the “Green New Deal” for its unaffordability and unrealistic aims. “Facts are facts, America. We should care about getting things right. Yet standards of who gets fact-checked, how often + why are unclear,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Monday. “This is where false equivalency + bias creeps in, allowing climate deniers to be put on par w/scientists, for example.”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez lashed out at fact-checkers just days after taking office, accusing them of “false equivalency” and “bias” toward her in their columns examining her statements.

Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., has been called out by fact-checkers at a steady clip since her upset primary win last year over then-Rep. Joe Crowley. She’s apparently had enough. On Monday, she took aim at PolitiFact and The Washington Post fact-check unit for supposedly singling her out.

“Facts are facts, America. We should care about getting things right. Yet standards of who gets fact-checked, how often + why are unclear,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Monday. “This is where false equivalency + bias creeps in, allowing climate deniers to be put on par w/ scientists, for example.”
