Earlier we told you about CNN’s Brian Stelter rushing to the defense of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez after investigative journalist Lara Logan cited her “radical agenda.” Additionally, Stelter didn’t feel it necessary to include the reason why Logan called out AOC. Here’s Logan’s tweet, including what AOC said last year about rioting:
My question: who turned a bartender from NY into a mouthpiece for a radical agenda? Same people pulling the strings/behind Antifa & on the streets? https://t.co/W4LAwfY6bT

And with that, the “journalism” pack wolves were off and running. CNN’s Oliver Darcy asked this question:
what on earth happened to lara logan https://t.co/1MOIeV65xO

Either they’re pretending to not know, or they do know and don’t feel it worth mentioning:
Hi Oliver, Maybe Lara had a bad, first hand experience with radical, leftist / anarchist mobs? https://t.co/x4F9aSvxI4

Well being gang raped by radical Islam and then getting stabbed in the back by your employer because we can't disturb The Chosen One's foreign policy is a good indicator. https://t.co/4Je9K17egr

Logan’s experienced it firsthand, not that these “journalists” are going to feel that’s a detail that needs to be shared.

Darcy’s CNN colleague Andrew Kaczynski along with journo Soledad O’Brien joined in to defend AOC’s honor:
conspiracy aside here – what is with the constant digs at AOC for having a working people's job?https://t.co/15j3T8eaxS

Also—the bartender slam… never really works as a slam. It’s a job. Get over yourself, lady. https://t.co/MYoJMnfVjD

Solid “journalisming,” all.
based on what happened to her in Cairo, shouldn't we give her a pass on her reaction to violent mobs?

They should, but they won’t, because there’s an agenda that needs to be pushed.
