Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the biggest star in the Democrat Party.
Journalists tip-toe around ever criticizing her.
But one NBC anchor said something about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that could end his career.
The national uproar over Ocasio-Cortez comparing detainment facilities on the southern border to concentration camps continues to blaze.
And NBC “Meet the Press” anchor Chuck Todd weighed on.
To the surprise of many Americans, Todd actually performed an act of journalism and criticized Ocasio-Cortez.
The Daily Caller reports:
“That is exactly what they are. They are concentration camps,” Ocasio-Cortez said Monday in an Instagram Live video, referring to migrant detention centers. “The fact that concentrations camps are now an institutionalized practice in the home of the free is extraordinarily disturbing and we need to do something about it,” she added.
Todd criticized Ocasio-Cortez for defending the “concentration camps” label by drawing a distinction between concentration camps and death camps.
“Fair enough, but congresswoman: tens of thousands were also brutalized, tortured, starved and ultimately died in concentration camps. If you want to criticize the shameful treatment of people at our southern border, fine. You’ll have plenty of company. But be careful comparing them to Nazi concentration camps. They’re not at all comparable, in the slightest,” Todd said in a segment Wednesday.
This did not sit well with Ocasio-Corez’s fans on the Left.
They berated Todd for daring to criticize the New York congresswoman.
This is such a disgrace. https://t.co/h0lphLirNi

Genuinely one of the most shameful @chucktodd segments I’ve ever seen.
This is what happens when you treat “neutrality” as a virtue — you end up with journalists who lack the moral courage to name evil when they see it, and who care more about semantics than humanity. https://t.co/KYkxH3yPTZ

Ocasio-Cortez even responded by blasting Todd.
“Well, @chucktodd — the fact that you slipped in ‘Nazi’ when I never said that is pretty unfortunate. Almost as unfortunate as the fact that you spent this whole time w/o discussing DHS freezers, ‘dog pounds,’ missing children, & human rights abuses that uphold use of this term,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote.
NBC is the home team network for the Left.
It depends on liberal viewers for ratings.
And given that viewers fled Rachel Maddow’s show at an alarming rate after she was exposed to be a fraudulent liar and conspiracy theorist, MSNBC and NBC cannot stand to suffer any more audience defections.

One veteran said The New York Times has blood on its hands for this ugly act of betrayal
The New York Times is an agenda driven outlet that doesn’t care who gets hurt as long as the left-wing narrative moves forward.
But now The Times stands accused of putting American troops’ lives at risk.
And one veteran said The New York Times has blood on its hands for this ugly act of betrayal.
Indiana Congressman Jim Banks is a veteran of the war in Afghanistan.
Banks attended a White House briefing on the fake news story in The New York Times falsely claiming the President ignored intelligence briefings that the Russians paid the Taliban bounties to kill American soldiers in Afghanistan.
After the briefing ended, Banks ripped The New York Times for lying.
“I just left the White House where I was briefed by CoS @MarkMeadows and top intelligence officials. They discussed @nytimes’ hit piece falsely accusing @realDonaldTrump of ignoring reports that Russia placed bounties on American soldiers in Afghanistan,” Banks wrote on social media.
Banks blasted The New York Times for having “blood on its hands” for printing unverified classified intelligence, which now would prevent the United States from ever learning the truth about the matter.
“The real scandal: We’ll likely never know the truth . . . Because the @nytimes used unconfirmed intel in an ONGOING investigation into targeted killing of American soldiers in order to smear the President. The blood is on their hands,” Banks added.
Banks then trashed The Times for dishonoring his and others service by purposefully harming U.S. national security because to The New York Times, hurting Donald Trump’s re-election bid is the most important goal above all others.
“Having served in Afghanistan during the time the alleged bounties were placed, no one is angrier about this than me. Now it’s impossible to finish the investigation. All b/c the @nytimes will do anything to damage @realdonaldtrump , even if it means compromising nat’l security,” Banks wrote.

What this MSNBC host just said about President Trump has everyone surprised
The Fake News Media are relentless in their attempts to smear Trump’s name.
Their attacks are only getting worse the closer things get to the November Elections.
And what this MSNBC host just said about President Trump has everyone surprised.
When news broke through a so-called Fake News Media “source” that Russians were putting special bounty targets on U.S. military soldiers, the Left came together to claim Trump did nothing to stop it because he serves Putin.
This couldn’t be farther from the truth.
U.S. intelligence did not brief the Trump Administrations of the reports because there was no credibility to them.
But now the Fake News Media has latched hold of the story and everything, as usual, has gone sideways.
MSNBC’s own Joe Scarborough, host of The Morning Joe, thinks Trump is lying and let the world know it earlier this week in an unhinged rant accusing President Trump of being a Russian asset.
“At the time he’s trying to invite [Russia] to the G-7. At a time he’s continuing to say that Russia’s a good friend of his, and they’re not going to tell the president? That either suggests he is so addled and mentally deficient they didn’t think it was worth their time telling him, or that he’s a source of the Russians and that they couldn’t trust him. There’s no other good explanation of why you wouldn’t tell the president that the leader of Russia is putting bounties on the heads of young American troops,” Scarborough huffed.
Americans everywhere were dumbfounded and understood just how far from logical Scarborough’s conclusions landed when he jumped.
It was confirmed by American intelligence officials that the information was too raw to bring up the chain of command, i.e. there is no credibility to the claims.
But that isn’t stopping the shills in the Fake News Media from playing their political games.
Americans are sick of Fake News Media and their elitists telling the country how to think.

This MSNBC reporter just got his head handed to him by violent protesters for saying these four words
Most news out of the “CHOP” area of Seattle are frightening and disgusting.
Multiple reports of gang rapes, looting, arson and even murder have come out putting the lie to the “peaceful” message some reporters are conveying.
And this MSNBC reporter found out the hard way when he got his head handed to him by violent protesters for saying these four words.
When violent leftist protesters took over a few blocks of Seattle, renamed it CHOP (Capitol Hill Occupied Protest), and claimed the “autonomous zone” was a new, independent country, most Americans laughed.
They wrongly figured it would be over in a few short days, with no real harm done.
But they were wrong on both counts.
News coming out of the “CHOP” nation are less than funny.
There have been multiple violent crimes including rapes, arsons, beatings, armed robbery, and even alleged murders.
And the Mayor of Seattle seems perfectly ok with all of this going on in her city.
She even called the CHOP situation a “party-like atmosphere” and said it represented true democracy.
Meanwhile, as one MSNBC reporter found out the hard way, the truth is much more frightening and bloodier.
Earlier this week, MSNBC reporter Vaughn Hillyard found himself in deep trouble when he was getting ready to do an interview with a few protesters inSeattle’s CHOP.
The leftist reporter started to try and portray CHOP as a peaceful, freedom-loving, beautiful and idyllic atmosphere, calling it “almost like a street festival-type atmosphere.”
Unfortunately for Hillyard, his comments caused one very vocal protester to immediately get in the reporter’s face, yelling, “Shame on you for saying that.”
Meanwhile back in the MSNBC main studio, the anchor began to eagerly try and show MSNBC had not “mischaracterized” the zone.
Hillyard then said to the confused MSNBC anchor Joshua Johnson, “This is a part of the conversation, Joshua, and we heard here in these streets, is the extent to which it has been peaceful since Monday, after more than a week of clashes between the demonstrators and the police, now you’ve seen essentially almost like a street festival-type atmosphere, a street festival-type atmosphere with a very . . .”
“No! It is not a street festival!” screamed the protester.
Hillyard quickly managed to finish with a weak, “. . . with a very intentional purpose.”
But the angry protester wasn’t finished with Hillyard and MSNBC, “It is not a street festival!” he screamed again.
Then, he ominously pointed his finger at the MSNBC cameraman, and yelled again, “It is not a street festival!”
And he went further, this time stabbing his finger into the reporter’s chest, screaming like a banshee, “Do Not Say That! Shame On You For Saying That!”
Having successfully frightened the reporter, the protester turned his wrath back on the cameraman, wildly pointing into the camera, shouting, “Learn right now. It is not a street festival!”
Then a female protester possibly trying to sound somewhat sane, and clearly trying to defend the ravings of the man joined in, “Do you know what our voices sound like from the tear gas police attacked us with?”
“You have to understand, some traumatizing things happened here, all of us are suffering from PTSD in our own country. From our own country. It is NOT a street festival!”
“It is not!” the angry male protester began to chant.
“One thing to listen to: It is not a street festival!” said the angry protester.
As is typical of the media, the whole exchange ended with the MSNBC reporter apologizing for “mischaracterizing” the CHOP situation and reiterated that it is not, in fact, a street festival.
