Did AOC Falsely Accuse Fox News of Mocking Her Name?

More outrage this week as New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attacked Fox News for allegedly mispronouncing her name. The Democratic darling claimed the news station and the personalities it hires were deliberately mangling her name to make it sound more Hispanic for racially-charged reasons.

In a Twitter tirade, Ocasio-Cortez challenged Fox News for the “incorrect” pronunciation of her name. There was just one problem, which was swiftly discovered when the actual transcripts were reviewed – it didn’t happen.

“Fox News likes to say my name (incorrectly) as ‘Cortez,’ which I can only imagine is bc that sounds more ‘stereotypically’ Hispanic + probably incites more ‘anxiety’ for them,” AOC tweeted. “Pro Tip: My last name is not ‘Cortez,’ just as theirs isn’t ‘Ingra’ or ‘Carl’ or ‘Hann.'”

Her complaint seemed to stem from the use of only half of her hyphenated last name; the shortened names above refer to Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham. The only issue with her complaint is that the “incorrect pronunciation” never happened.

The Fox News transcripts were reviewed in detail by Tom Elliot, founder of Grabien Media, who found no instances of mispronunciation or abbreviation of her name. Elliot dug into all episodes of the Fox News Shows “Hannity” and “The Ingraham Angle” that aired in the last three weeks. Despite reviewing the complete transcript of every episode that aired in March, Elliot was unable to find anything that supported the allegations made on Twitter by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

He stated his findings on Twitter.

“You may be unsurprised to learn that this is untrue,” Elliott said in reply to Ocasio-Cortez’s tweeted accusation.

After reviewing the entire history of the month of March for both programs, Elliot found that while Ocasio-Cortez was mentioned by name a total of 188 times between the two programs, every single mention used her correctly pronounced, full name. She was never referred to as only “Cortez” at all, despite her earlier accusation.

“Unless @aoc has something to back up this claim, it would seem she owes apologies to Hannity and Ingraham,” Elliot tweeted. “Randomly accusing people of prejudice is indecent, esp when it will inevitably be used for more boycott fodder.”

While Elliot’s Grabien Media did attempt to speak with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez about the mentions they found versus her claims, she did not respond on Twitter or in any other venue. One Fox News host, however, did find the time to respond.

Laura Ingraham, on of the Fox News hosts accused of purposely misusing and mispronouncing Ocasio-Cortez’s name, did fire back after the allegations were proven to be incorrect:

“So @AOC does a huge thread complaining that @seanhannity @tuckercarlson and I routinely don’t use her full last name in order to stereotype her. But when it’s exposed as FALSE, she just moves on. Why not just join us on air, @AOC? It’ll be fun. #GirlPower”

    Well it appears all democrats must be old car salesman. Because when a democrat opens his/her mouth nothing comes out but lies . Plus when they can’t remember their own lies they make up new ones .
    Once a democrat always a democrat. Like all children she has never learned your lies will seek you out .

    • To Jerry. You’re in trouble now! You only used capital letters on her first name and lower case on her middle and last name. You should be locked up behind bars for 20 years for doing her initials Incorrectly. You know I’m kidding. It just seems that the DemoRats look for anything to try and win the battle. I can not believe there are so many ignorant people voting against President Trump when he gas turned this Country, my Country, on a path of greatness.

AMERICA WAKE UP! WE ARE BEING SOLD BY THE DEMOCRATS TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER…SOROS, FAKE MEDIA, FBI, CIA, ECT.

  6. Ahe’s actually not stupid. She’s just a previously unknown 2-bit actress parroting the scripts given to her by her handlers. I would doubt that she even gives any thoughts to what she says in front of the cameras. She just moves on and begins reading her next scripted lines.

  7. Old adages usually don’t die for a reason, which is the truth behind them. In this case, the one which comes to mind is: You can’t fix stupid. And in the case of AOC, it’s obvious that she is not only stupid, but she has so little self-awareness that she doesn’t even recognize her stupidity and foolishness when it’s pointed out to her. Don’t expect her to defend her allegations. There’s nothing which I’ve ever heard her say which is defensible. The only way to deal with her stupidity is to put her back into whatever bar/restaurant she came from and let her ramble on to the clientele while she mixes drinks and makes sandwiches. She can probably do that with the half of her brain which partially works.

  8. the “people” who voted to elect that moronic idiot are actually dumber than she is..Having lived in queens many years ago I am quite familiar with the boroughs as well as the district she represents. It can be clearly stated that those people who voted for that clown ARE dumber than she is !

  9. As a true American and not a “sneak over the border” non entity,this dumb ass woman is a complete disruption of everything good in the UNITED STATES.Just another criminal dumbocrap! This piece of shit should be fired or taken out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. She really has to get off the meds. She clearly is having a wonderful love affair with herself Or to the detriment of the US and the American people. It’s more than time for her to get her head out of her own butt and get a reality check. She is a self proclaimed boss of the Democratic Party and clearly the Democratic Party is supporting that because they’ve done nothing to correct it
