Despite attempt by NBC News to shield AOC from a parody account, she's not going to date them

It seems the mocking of Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez by the recently popular AOCPress parody account was just too much for NBC News. The humorless scolds from the media outlet ran a story tearing down the parody account.


Why would a news organization feel the need to attack a parody account on Twitter?

It’s quite simple: They’re all on the same team.

The piece is dripping with bias designed to manipulate the reader into having a negative reaction to the parody account.

They point out that it’s a ‘verified’ account. Who cares? So many accounts are verified now that nobody pays attention to the moniker as any indication of authenticity, but the ‘journalists’ want to tie into prior fears that paid verification would create a crisis of authenticity.

They authors, Kat Tenbarge and Ben Goggin, also use the word ‘impersonating’ throughout the article because they know impersonating a real user is against Twitter’s rules, unless the account is clearly marked as a parody account. The AOCPress account is marked as a parody account and complies with Twitter’s rules.

Finally, they try to accuse Elon Musk for causing the account’s recent success. There’s one huge problem with that:


As Twitchy readers know, AOC tweeted about the account herself, earning widespread mockery for a tweet that has now been viewed over 35 million times.

She revealed that she and her team would be assessing how to deal with the situation. We suggest she stop tweeting like a parody account.

It’s hard to blame that on Elon Musk.

Thank you for helping out, NBC News.

Check out this quote from the article:

The account is fooling some of the people who read its tweets — bringing to life some of the fears about Musk’s paid verification system that stripped legacy verified users of their blue check marks. In the replies, there is a mix of responses from people taking the tweets at face value and attributing them to the real Ocasio-Cortez, while others point out that it’s a parody account.

The account’s most viral tweet plays into a sexist trope that Musk and other conservatives have embraced since his Twitter takeover — that Ocasio-Cortez is secretly attracted to him.


There it is – Elon Musk and his evil blue check marks are causing this.

That last sentence is a real doozy! A ‘sexist trope’ that AOC is secretly attracted to Musk.

We can assure you, she doesn’t want to date him.

Talk about sexist tropes. LOL!

That tweet is the perfect example of why the AOCPress account is fooling people.

AOC tweets some crazy stuff and the parody account has captured her tone and voice perfectly. This editor has to admit to being fooled once … for a few minutes at least.

All of this raises the question: Is this funny?

Oh, but it is. It’s hilarious, in fact.


The Supreme Leader of the Squad shall not be mocked!

Where were you on the day AOC was mocked on Twitter?


The journalists at NBC News should be the first people to recognize and embrace this freedom.

Instead, they circle the wagons for their Democrat allies.

LOLOLOL! Now that’s just perfect.

You had to know there would be an AOC staged photo op meme.

Ha! That’s good.

At least when the powerful people being criticized are Democrats.
