Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) ripped into NBC for a tweet that noted she “did not endorse” 2020 nominee Joe Biden in her 60-second speech at the Democratic National Convention.

“In one of the shortest speeches of the DNC, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez did not endorse Joe Biden,” NBC News said in its original post, which has since been deleted.

To be fair, she who is called “AOC” was not there to endorse Biden.

“This is completely unacceptable, disappointing, and appalling,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote in response to her Twitter followers. “The DNC shared the procedural purpose of my remarks to media WELL in advance. @NBC knew what was going to happen & that it was routine.”

“You waited several hours to correct your obvious and blatantly misleading tweet. It sparked an enormous amount of hatred and vitriol, & now the misinfo [‘misinformation’ for those of you who are grownups] you created is circulating on other networks. All to generate hate-clicks from a pre-recorded, routine procedural motion.”

Question: Are ‘hate clicks’ considered violence by the under 40 crowd?

NBC News responded by saying it had “should have included more detail on the nomination process” and had deleted the tweet “to prevent its further spread.”
