A Conservative Publication Just Did The Unthinkable To Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is firing back at what she called “completely disgusting behavior” from the right-wing outlet The Daily Caller for publishing a fake nude photo of her with a misleading headline.

“GOP have been losing their mind + frothing at the mouth all week, so this was just a matter of time,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Wednesday night. She added that a reporter from the Daily Mail, a British tabloid, was “going to my boyfriend’s relative’s homes+offering them cash for ‘stories.’”

“Women in leadership face more scrutiny. Period,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote.

The Daily Caller, which was co-founded by Fox News host Tucker Carlson, expressed regret for its headline, which had read “Here’s the Photo Some People Described as a Nude Selfie of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.”

“We regret the error, as the intent was to inform our audience that a fake image was circulating online,” The Daily Caller said in a tweet, noting editors “rapidly had it deleted and fixed.”

Ocasio-Cortez linked The Daily Caller’s action to the broader aggressive coverage from Fox News and other conservative media.

“The @DailyCaller, funded by @TuckerCarlson (at @FoxNews), has a well-documented relationship with white supremacy,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Thursday morning. “Unsurprising they’re targeting me.”

“The real question is, at what point is their nonstop, targeted behavior considered harassment?” Ocasio-Cortez added.

Fox News Host Tucker Carlson is a co-founder of The Daily Caller and retains an ownership stake.

Carlson and The Daily Caller did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
