NEW YORK (AP) — A new study suggests that Fox News is obsessed with freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
The liberal watchdog Media Matters for America counted more than 3,000 times the Bronx Democrat was mentioned on Fox News Channel and its sister Fox Business Network over a six-week period that ended earlier this month. Not a day went by where she wasn't talked about.
Media Matters suggests that's part of a pattern where Fox creates Democratic bogeymen for its hosts and anchors to attack.
Fox noted that Ocasio-Cortez has been a star with many other media outlets, too.
The congresswoman tweeted a link to the Media Matters research, adding the comment, "that's how hard they're fighting against dignified health care, wages and justice for all."
