Reporters not pleased with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘no press’ at town halls

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic socialist running for Congress in New York’s 14th District, has found a way to stop all of the negative press coverage.

Is it actually learning the issues? Speaking in full, coherent sentences and answering questions entirely? Debating those with whom she disagrees without resulting to sexism?

No, her solution is all much simpler than that. After recent events where the rising socialist superstar in the Democratic party was “mobbed,” her campaign has decided to ban press from two public events.

Well, the move by the future of the “future of the Democratic party” has even some journalists upset.

Not giving terrific answers, not allowing the press into her public events, perhaps this running for public office thing isn’t for her?
