The mainstream media is now running damage control for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and the rest of the “Green New Deal” authors, after they suffered a major embarrassment involving an “FAQ” on the GND that appears to show the real intent behind the “landmark” piece of environmental legislation: turning the United States into a socialist paradise.

Saturday, Ocasio-Cortez and her advisers began running a full-scale operation to distract and deflect from criticism of the Green New Deal, suggesting first that conservatives had circulated a handful of “doctored” versions of her FAQ, and then, when that line of attack failed, that the posted FAQ, which suggested, among other things, a universal income even for those “unwilling” to work, was an irrelevant “early draft.”

But instead of laying the blame where it belonged — squarely at the feet of Ocasio-Cortez and her advisers, who clearly botched their own Green New Deal rollout — the media immediately blamed conservatives for “pouncing” on Ocasio-Cortez’s plan.

Business Insider provided the most egregious example, accusing conservatives of unfairly “attacking” Ocasio-Cortez for “accidentally” leaking a document posted to her website and delivered directly to several members of the news media.

Business Insider was ultimately forced to rewrite the headline and issue a new tweet after right-leaning reporters pointed out that the leak appeared to be far from “accidental.” Ocasio-Cortez’s team posted the FAQ to the congresswoman’s official website, and members of her press team sent a pitch containing the FAQ to a number of high-profile media outlets, including National Public Radio, which posted the document in full on its website as soon as the congresswoman’s embargo on the material lifted.

The Hill also denied Ocasio-Cortez’s failure, claiming the congresswoman was “forced to clarify” the precepts of her Green New Deal after concerns over everything from the document’s prohibition of domestic air travel, to its proposed extensive overhaul of the American financial system, ending with a universal guaranteed income, universal health care, and a multi-trillion-dollar entitlement program.

Even The Washington Post, which could not deny that the FAQ appeared in multiple outlets on Thursday and Friday, tried to sow skepticism about the document’s validity, calling the sheet a “mystery.”

At no point was the sheet a “mystery.” It came directly from Ocasio-Cortez’s office. But the mainstream media appears not simply unwilling to admit the congresswoman’s mistake — or, even, perhaps, the full intent of the Green New Deal itself — but that Americans might have been shocked at the official piece of legislation, and not merely a conservative rewrite.

Ultimately, Ocasio-Cortez and her advisers took partial blame for the document, claiming it was merely a “draft” FAQ that was posted and sent to reporters by mistake. They have promised a more accurate rundown of the Green New Deal legislation.

    As stupid, ignorant and intolerant as this scab is CNN and the rest of the hacks need to hire full time people just to cover this horse tooth, bugged eyed, cockbite, cause this mad cow doesn’t ever close that ugly, dumb, diseaded fking mouth of hers. It’s going to be a full time job to cover her 24/7…….and to help her take down websites and make up lies. Maybe even wash her KKK white custom for her.

      America is doomed! Ron Paul wrote a book several years ago, warning of this Socialst Takeover. He said people would be wanting to move to another country and to hide any money you had outside the USA, because we would have it taken away from us by higher taxes then by force
      I thought he was crazy but his predictions are all coming true! Scared!!!

    I don’t believe there were any accidents with these lousy documents. AOC can try to cover it up but it was exactly what she wanted to come out. If any Congressperson votes for this, they need to be removed from congress. I worked very hard for my money and I would never give it to people that didn’t want to work.

    The woman is beyond naive and simple in her thinking. She shows how out of touch New Yorkers are and that some of the things they are doing are just poor judgement and lack of education. To name a few, they have a lock down on guns… so the citizens are more vulnerable and the criminals don’t have to worry about a fight back. They have the “Run Away” law that requires you to retreat in your own home and have to prove you ran away before injuring an intruder. They are capping producing gas wells. They are the largest users of natural gas. So they can lead the way by eliminating cares, trucks, heat, air conditioning to show us how it is done. They expect federal taxes to take a back seat to their excessive high state taxes.

    Didn’t she also say this verbally? I don’t think this was an accident. Even early drafts of emails I send to friends are read over several times (including this response) before I send it. So to “accidentally” say something, that if anyone read through it one time, would instantly think “This is not going to go over so well” and should be fielded immediately.

    Nothing says “professional” as much as proof reading it more than once and getting at least two others to proof read it before sending it out to the world, especially something as major and world bending as this.
