Since officially entering Congress, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has made a name for herself over her use of social media, where she regularly uses her Twitter account — which now boasts more than 2.3 million followers — to punch back at critics, especially those in the media.

In fact, according to one journalist, Ocasio-Cortez's social media strategy is reminiscent of another politician — President Donald Trump.

What happened?

It began after Ocasio-Cortez criticized CBS News for not assigning black journalists to cover the 2020 election. "Unacceptable in 2019. Try again," Ocasio-Cortez declared.

That led Josh Kraushaar, politics editor at National Journal, to point out that Ocasio-Cortez seemingly employs a social media strategy similar to the president.

Ocasio-Cortez was not happy with the comparison, quickly firing back with the assertion that a lack of newsroom diversity leads to the media disproportionally covering stories negative to people of color.
