Awkward! @AOC Accidentally Takes Swipe At @ChelseaClinton “Are We Still Pretending That Hires Like These Are Evidence Of A Meritocracy?”

Today it was announced that Jeff Sessions’ former Director of Communications, Sarah Isgur, is moving over to CNN to head up their political coverage for the 2020 election cycle.

Yea for women, right? Nope! Progressive women have their daggers out and are looking for any way they can find to attack her.

Daily Beast ran a headline that started with “WTF”

CNN Staffers ‘Demoralized’ by Hiring of GOP Operative Sarah Isgur to Edit 2020 Coverage

Vox hyperventilated:

CNN hires GOP operative with no journalism experience to coordinate its 2020 coverage

Sarah Isgur once referred to her new employer as the “Clinton News Network.”

But when Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tried to take a shot at Ms Isgur, she accidentally hit Chelsea Clinton with a dig at people who get cushy unearned media jobs.

Sorry, didn’t get the latest memo after 1,000 experienced + qualified journalists of all stripes were let go w/o warning a few weeks ago and still looking for work: are we still pretending that hires like these are evidence of a meritocracy?

Yikes! Does AOC know that Chelsea was given a sweetheart position at NBC?

What did NBC News’s Chelsea Clinton do for her $600,000 salary?

What’s the pay scale for a rookie network news correspondent with no news experience whatsoever?

Six-hundred thousand bucks!!!!

That’s according to Politico’s Dylan Byers and Maggie Haberman, who report that a prospect who came on board NBC News in November 2011 snared just that level of annual compensation. She was hired to do feel-good stories as part of NBC News’s “Making a Difference” franchise. Her name is Chelsea Clinton.

If that name hadn’t been connected to American royalty, she could have expected to rake in between $100,000 and $200,000 as a first-year network correspondent, a job that people from less-high-profile families snare only through years and years of tireless work covering the news. That salary range is confirmed by several people familiar with the compensation levels at major network news outlets.

Jeez. AOC can’t even attack a conservative woman without accidentally attacking a fellow progressive woman!
