    Ocasio-Cortez Slams NY Times for 'Glamour Shot' of Former Trump Aide I5Bn3

    From Newsweek

    Chris Morran of Newsweek wrote:The New York Times received a number of complaints this weekend over a story about Hope Hicks, President Donald Trump's former Director of Communications, and her decision on whether or not to comply with a congressional subpoena. But it wasn't the story that got some folks upset — it was the photo the paper ran with the article.

    For the article, published late last week and written by Times journalist Maggie Haberman, the paper opted not to use any of the many available images of Hicks, but rather run an image — taken by a Times staff photographer — of the former White House staffer that, while setting a somber mood, is nonetheless flattering to Hicks.

    Some critics saw the use of such an image as an example of bias and tried to call out the Times for it.

    O'Brien later took a swipe at Haberman, implying that the Times reporter had deliberately selected a flattering photo to stay in Hicks' good graces.

    "Imagine having people write about your decision to answer a subpoena as an existential dilemma. The way these journalists treat the potential sources for their next book is... not surprising," she wrote.

    O'Brien's original tweet was picked up and referred to by Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Sunday afternoon. The first-term Democrat pointed out what she saw as media hypocrisy, referring to the tendency for some outlets to run photographs of police shooting victims that show them in an unflattering light.

    "Yup. Where’s the 'no angel' take now?" asked Ocasio-Cortez. "In the immediate aftermath of shootings, media routinely post menacing photos of people-of-color victims + dredge up any questionable thing they’d ever done. But when Hope Hicks considers not complying w a subpoena, it’s glamour shot time."

    The congresswoman from New York added in a follow-up tweet that she didn't understand why the Times was, in her view, trying to portray Hicks' potential failure to comply with a subpoena as a matter of personal drama.

    "What gets me is news breaks that this woman is weighing committing a crime before Congress & it’s getting framed by the NYT as some Lifetime drama called 'Hope’s Choice.' This is a fmr admin official considering participating in a coverup led by the President. Treat her equally," wrote Ocasio-Cortez.

    Kudos to Soledad O'Brien and Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. I love getting my information from The New York Times, but this is wrong.

    Just Saying.
