So which is it? As Twitchy reported, Joe Lieberman in a Wall Street Journal op-ed urged New York Democrats to ditch their support of socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in favor of Joe Crowley, and yet DNC chair Tom Perez declared her “the future of our party.”
Media types, who don’t root for a side, mind you, have been happy to give the Democrats advice on Ocasio-Cortez. MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle, for example, warned that Ocasio-Cortez’ prediction that capitalism will not always exist in the world “will not help the blue wave.” And on Wednesday, CNN’s Chris Cillizza advised Democrats to “slow their roll” in pushing Ocasio-Cortez into the limelight — not surprising, considering her disastrous TV interviews.

Sure, the Democrats have been pushing her as the future of the party, but the media has played its part too, hasn’t it?
We're not the ones pushing her. The media is. https://t.co/La0HWGjOq1

Um, you might want to check with Tom Perez on that one. “The future of our party!”
Chris, I know this whole "analysis" thing is hard for you, but Democrats are not actually pushing Ocasio-Cortez as "their next big star." That t'would be the media's doing, the media in which you are a critical neuron-destroying cog. https://t.co/RtWH3bvvFv

In which, once again, a media pundit imagines himself an important Dem campaign strategist. Cillizza, the Dems aren't pushing AOC. Media hacks like you were. She's one Democrat among many running under the Blue Wave. It's a team effort. No "stars". https://t.co/W14u6Jnkr8

She's done. The left is having their media do hit jobs on her. https://t.co/jMOeT3r3E6

That’s hilarious. The true hit jobs have been her own interviews.

Wow. When leftist pravda #CNN tells you you've gone too far left you know you're in uncharted waters of crazy. ?

She's ALREADY the big star.
Next comes supernova, and finally she becomes a black hole that sucks in the entire Democratic party. https://t.co/7wsyHT3fdq
