New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shamed a news outlet on Twitter for not including a “single black journalist” to cover the 2020 election season.

With the 2018 midterms already in the rearview mirror, newsrooms across the country are already preparing for the presidential elections less than two years away. Ben Mitchell, an associate producer for CBS News, publicly announced on Friday his company’s official 2020 election team.

The eight-member team of reporters and four-member team of associate producers includes a diverse mix of Asian, Hispanic, White and female staffers.

However, the team was not acceptable for one new member of the House of Representatives.

“This WH admin has made having a functional understanding of race in America one of the most important core competencies for a political journalist to have, yet [CBS News] hasn’t assigned a *single* black journalist to cover the 2020 election,” Ocasio-Cortez — a representative of New York’s 14th Congressional District — tweeted on Saturday night.

“Unacceptable in 2019. Try again,” she concluded.

When an editor from the National Journal, Josh Kraushaar, pointed out that Ocasio-Cortez’s media criticism closely resembled that of President Donald Trump, the self-identified democratic socialist doubled down.

Ocasio-Cortez’s mention of “brown lady says a curse word” was a swipe at the media attention Rashida Tlaib, a Muslim congresswoman from Michigan, garnered when she called Trump a motherf****r shortly after being sworn into office.

When Kraushaar pointed out the diversity of CBS’ team, the liberal congresswoman responded by making fun of him.

She continued her Twitter feud with Kraushaar well into Sunday, suggesting a scenario in which CBS hired an entire team of non-whites.

New data shows Ocasio-Cortez has quickly dominated with social media outreach. The far-left lawmaker garnered 11.8 million Twitter interactions between Dec. 11, 2018 and Jan. 11, 2019 — more interactions than five top news outlets combined in the last month.

However, Ocasio-Cortez still remains miles behind Trump’s Twitter influence.
