What’s the message here? I really didn’t want to click CNN’s link worded, “Voter on Ocasio-Cortez: She’s ridiculous”.
Hmm, I think I see where this is going. I mean, what could possibly give me the notion that corporate media has a corporate bias?
Cynicism and curiosity got the best of me, and I clicked. It was a three minute segment on Erin Burnett’s program.
At the link, CNN posted the headline saying, “Moderate voters Skeptical of Ocasio-Cortez”.
OK, we’ve transitioned from just “voter” to “moderate voters” in a rural area of Pennsylvania that Trump won.
Imagine my shock. It seems AOC Derangement Syndrome has spread from FOX(R) to CNN. My suspicion was confirmed.
The so-called moderate “Voters we spoke to” said they would not support ANY Democratic candidate so far. (Turns out they are rural white Trump voters, and “for the border wall”.)
The couple said, “They identify as moderate and have no regrets leaving the Democratic Party.”
Um, because the Party of Trump is more “moderate”?
Gee, that’s a lot of certainty and conviction in those rural white folks.
Well, “real Americans” must know better than the rest of us. Trump-voting, wall loving, socialism-fearing "moderates" must have their sound reasons for not voting for Democrats.
They declare they have “No interest in going back because they have real issues with its emerging leaders".
Emerging leaders. They must be referring to the declared presidential candidates, amirite?
Turns out AOC, a first term House Representative, is a “leader” already. And she’s a scary Democratic Socialist.
“Too bizarre...ridiculous" Her Green New Deal will “lose jobs, lose wages”.
Isn’t it odd how those “moderates” seem to be parroting Trump and Republican talking points?
“They’re more liberal, tending to be socialists”, warned another rural white male. Fellow Pennsylvanian Joe Biden might be OK. “People like him”, because he’s “moderate”, just “as long as he doesn’t get to the socialism part of it”.
CNN could have been honest and titled the piece, “Trump Voters Fear Socialism”.
Thank Mammon, our one true sacred god of the free market, we have been alerted to the dangers of democratic socialism by Trump voters and corporate media.
Thank you CNN, for regurgitating the far Right’s fear-mongering socialism phobia. And thanks for spreading that FOX(R) AOC Derangement Syndrome.
Fellow corporate-owned entities like FOX(R) and the Party of Trump appreciate the help.
