MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell is facing criticism on Thursday over her
declaration that none of the four progressive congresswomen of "The
Squad," including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, are "socialists."
Amid a bitter feud, President Trump attacked the freshman lawmakers during
his rally on Wednesday and labeled them as "socialists." But it was in
reaction to remarks from House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, D-Calif,
who also referred to the "squad" as "socialist Democrats" that Mitchell
wanted to fact-check.
"None of these members of Congress are socialists, but that is the way the
Republican leadership wants to frame this election face-off, Mitchell
told the panel. "Theres not a single member of these congressional
representatives who are avowed socialists, so I dont know where that is
coming from other than opposition research.

Socialists of America, the largest socialist organization in the United
States according to their own description, a fact which has been in no
way mysterious and was featured in profiles on the Congresswoman by
everyone from the Daily Beast to the New York Times," Howe wrote in an op-
ed. "She also self-identifies as a Democratic Socialist, and argues the
concepts on Twitter.
Howe later pointed out how Ocasio-Cortez has claimed that capitalism is
irredeemable and that she had promoted "democratic socialism" during a
recent appearance on "The Late Show."

"Mitchell obviously just assumed that because it was said by a Republican
it must be untrue, and so didnt bother to check," Howe said.

NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck told Fox News that Mitchell's
assertion about the New York congresswoman "isn't grounded in reality."
"Someone who describes herself as a 'democratic socialist' is a socialist.
The end," Houck explained. "And even if Ocasio-Cortez didn't describe
herself that way, one look at her policies and they fit the description."
