Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez banned the media from attending a series of campaign town halls last week.

“Just wrapped up an amazing community conversation & listening tour stop in Corona, Queens!” the New York Democrat announced on Twitter Sunday. “Guess what: we talked about race, immigration, healthcare, disability rights & housing… and everybody was fine!”

“Ocasio2018 Bronx & Queens stops are designed to foster community and restore civic life,” she continued. “They are intended for lively, compassionate discourse with a diversity of viewpoints.”

The article goes on to state the following:

But what exactly was said at the town hall will remain a mystery to those outside the room. The Ocasio-Cortez campaign banned the media from attending both events, even though they were open to the public, The Queens Chronicle reported Thursday.

Ocasio-Cortez spokesman Corbin Trent told the Chronicle that the event was closed to the press to avoid “unwanted attention,” complaining she was “mobbed” by reporters at a Bronx community meeting earlier that week.

  1. This is hilarious. Cortez just doesn’t want anymore publicity about her lack of intelligence on any matter political. The only reason this laughable excuse for a politician would ban media is so she can (typically leftist) control what those on the outside hear. What do they call that? Reasonable deniability? I may have that wrong but it’s something like that 🙂
