AOC fumes, calls NBC’s tweet about her DNC appearance “malicious & misleading”

AOC fumed over NBC’s coverage of her DNC appearance, where she seconded the nomination of Bernie Sanders for President.

NBC’s original tweet read “In one of the shortest speeches of the DNC, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez did not endorse Joe Biden: “I hereby second the nomination of Sen. Bernard Sanders of Vermont for president of the United States of America.”

NBC later delated the tweet and explained:

Editor’s note and clarification (1/2): This tweet should have included more detail on the nominating process. We have deleted the tweet to prevent its further spread, but it can be seen here for the record.

Editor’s note and clarification (2/2): Ocasio-Cortez was asked by the DNC to second Sanders’ nomination. The nomination is a procedural requirement of the convention. Ocasio-Cortez has previously endorsed Biden, & her speech was similar in length to other nominating speeches.

The explanation was not good enough for AOC, who responded:

You waited several hours to correct your obvious and blatantly misleading tweet.

It sparked an enormous amount of hatred and vitriol, & now the misinfo you created is circulating on other networks.

All to generate hate-clicks from a pre-recorded, routine procedural motion.

This is completely unacceptable, disappointing, and appalling.

The DNC shared the procedural purpose of my remarks to media WELL in advance. @NBC knew what was going to happen & that it was routine.

How does a headline that malicious & misleading happen w/ that prior knowledge?

AOC then asked NBC directly:

So @NBCNews how are you going to fix the incredible amount of damage and misinformation that you are now responsible for? Because a 1:15am tweet to slip under the radar after blowing up a totally false and divisive narrative across networks isn’t it.
