Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Warns Loss Of Journalists Will Send Democracy Crumbling


Quote:
Social media queen Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) used her Twitter platform to defend journalists amid a series of sweeping layoffs across the media industry.

In a Saturday tweet, the freshman congresswoman cautioned that “the biggest threats to journalism right now are tech monopolies & concentration of ownership,” advocating for “high-quality journalism.”

Without a diversity of news outlets, she warned, “our democracy will continue to crumble.”
I hate to see even more consolidation of the media.

IT's True!!!!!

Honest Journalism died back in 2005-2006. Some say even before then. Our Democratic Republic has been in trouble ever since.

I think it was mid 80s or 90s but yeah. Why though I don't often agree with them I'm sad to see the Washington Examiner disappear. And many others eaten up.

I doubt AOC has any idea what she is talking about.

What difference does it make? According to her the world is going to end in 12 years anyway.

Just as a broken clock is right twice a day, AOC is technically correct with her assumption that a loss of journalism will allow for a breakdown of our Republic. However, I seriously doubt that she truly understands what she is talking about but rather regurgitated that from another source.

So she is kind of the billboard / spokesperson for the new Democrat Party?

It will be fun to watch.
