Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez explains side effects of ‘this Fox News lunacy’

Even before she took office in January, Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has been the subject of constant scrutiny from Fox News. AOC recently accused Fox of spreading misinformation about her, and on Late Night With Seth Meyers, she revealed one of the side effects of some of her colleagues believing everything they hear.“It is funny because one of the side effects of, kind of this Fox News lunacy is that other actual members of congress, like, believe it and see it uncritically,” AOC said.One story that was false yet widely circulated among conservative media, was that AOC had signed a $10 million deal with Netflix. Though true that Netflix had bought the distribution rights to a documentary featuring AOC, called Knock Down The House, she did not, and will not see a penny. Still, this led to a colleague asking her about it at a place that left her with a question of her own.“So I was on the floor once, and this guy came up to me and he was like, ‘Is it true that you got $10 million from Netflix?’ And I was like, ’No,’” AOC said. “And it was in the well, and we were, like, voting on gun reform. And I’m like, ‘What else do you not know? This is concerning.’”In fact, AOC doesn’t really understand why she is the subject of so much Fox News coverage in the first place. “I mean, it’s weird,” AOC said. “Like, why are so many grown men just obsessed with this 29-year-old?”
