Ocasio-Cortez Blasts Fox News for Getting Her Name Wrong, But There’s a Problem

Freshman Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y) laid into Fox News in a series of Twitter messages on March 20, criticizing the channel’s opinion hosts for not using her full name, but evidence surfaced later to challenge her claims.

Ocasio-Cortez accused Fox News opinion hosts Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and Tucker Carlson of referring to her only as “Cortez” instead of “Ocasio-Cortez” and suggested that the hosts are intentionally stereotyping her.

Ooops! Major problem here.

Ocasio-Cortez’s accusations appear to be wholly unfounded, according to a review of Fox News footage conducted by Grabien Media. Ocasio-Cortez was mentioned 188 times on “The Ingraham Angle” and “Hannity” but the hosts referred to her correctly each time.

The only reference to Ocasio-Cortez as “Cortez” was made by a guest on the March 14 “Ingraham Angle,” according to Tom Elliot, the founder of Grabien Media. The host herself never got the name wrong. In one episode of “Hannity,” Ocasio-Cortez was mentioned 20 times, but Hannity said her name correctly each time.

“Unless [Ocasio-Cortez] has something to back up this claim, it would seem she owes apologies to Hannity and Ingraham. Randomly accusing people of prejudice is indecent, [especially] when it will inevitably be used for more boycott fodder,” Elliott wrote on Twitter on March 20.
