In case you missed it, the New York Times recently ran a piece on Hope Hicks:
Hope Hicks, one of the best-known but least visible former members of President Trump’s White House staff, is facing an existential question: whether to comply with a congressional subpoena https://t.co/8NXpfQvxQL pic.twitter.com/L7aWVMsIdq

Soledad O’Brien thought that was pretty tacky — and indicative of the NYT’s pro-Trump bias:
This is a good example of bias in the @nytimes: a picture of a person who is considering not complying with a subpoena is basically a glam shot, and it’s framed as a thoughtful, perfectly equal choice. https://t.co/qRHT31AsMg

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez couldn’t agree more.
Yup. Where’s the “no angel” take now?
In the immediate aftermath of shootings, media routinely post menacing photos of people-of-color victims + dredge up any questionable thing they’d ever done.
But when Hope Hicks considers not complying w a subpoena, it’s glamour shot time. https://t.co/ACnvXlKF7Q
— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) May 26, 2019
Wow! AOC’s argument against the New York Times’ Hicks piece is totally sound and not at all reliant on non sequiturs.
What gets me is news breaks that this woman is weighing committing a crime before Congress &it’s getting framed by the NYT as some Lifetime drama called “Hope’s Choice.”
This is a fmr admin official considering participating in a coverup led by the President.
Treat her equally. https://t.co/XcNbSuU4QB

“Treat her equally,” meaning … what, exactly? Ugly her up? AOC can’t possibly mean “treat her like they treat me.”
as the media darling of the MSM this woman has no #selfawareness

This woman is literally the star of a new comic book and Netflix documentary. https://t.co/g3OhiVSLhV

Says the woman with a comic book and a Netflix documentary
— Ric White (@ScoobyCheese) May 27, 2019
Netflix wasn't good enough for her?

As she is the “super hero” on her own comic book. Drama, thy name is @AOC
— chickenfingers (@sanfilti) May 27, 2019
Gotta love AOC of all people getting huffy over a pretty picture of a woman in a major media publication. The NYT article on Hicks is hardly a puff piece, but clearly AOC isn’t ready to relinquish her own glamour shot spotlight anytime soon. Stop being so obsessed with me! Now why aren’t you obsessing over me?

Wow, @aoc sounds jealous.

Oh, poor Ho She Minh jealous of Hope.

Smells like jealousy.

Oh, the nitwit who has a Netfix special, has been coronated in all the late nights, and is the darling of every media outlet in America is jealous.

Might be time to send her to Jelly School. Hopefully, unlike in college, she’ll actually learn something there.
Meanwhile. when can we expect the uproar over Trump-in-Heels shaming a proud member of the legacy media?
Blasting the Times? Is she destroying democracy with her dangerous rhetoric?
— #LearnToHuntBounties (@BoberFett) May 26, 2019
She has no respect for the freedom of the press!
She's a threat to democracy!!!
— Peter Jürgen (@PeterJrgen12) May 27, 2019
This is a dangerous attack on our free press.

So we’re just gonna sit by as @AOC attacks the press?

An unprecedented attack on a free and fair press and our first amendment institutions which safeguard them. It’s a dangerous time to tell the truth in America. Someone is going to get hurt. https://t.co/ZIjmMfCRwm
