MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Promotes Ocasio-Cortez’s Misleading Tweet Defending Omar (The Washington Free Beacon)
An MSNBC panel aired and parroted a misleading claim from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) Tuesday, seeking to tar Republicans while Democrats grapple with an anti-Semitism scandal.
MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell screened and read a tweet from Ocasio-Cortez suggesting there was a double standard in punishing Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) after she came under fire for anti-Semitic statements. Ocasio-Cortez insisted others should have been reprimanded if action is warranted against Omar. She seemed to imply Omar said something deserving reprimand, but has yet to actually say so.
