Sen. Tom Cotton blasts ‘Stalin-like’ coverup of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal.
The senator believes that the MSM news engaged in a “Stalin-like” cover-up of a Green New Deal document produced by Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s office.
“And too many people in the media have been complicit in the Stalin-like or 1984 technique of disappearing it, sending it down the memory hole.” — Arkansas Republican Sen. Tom Cotton

Arkansas Republican Sen. Tom Cotton unloaded on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal and said the media were “complicit” in burying the most radical parts of the deal.
Cotton, a staunch Republican, appeared on The Hugh Hewitt Show on Tuesday and discussed the widely ridiculed Green New Deal that aims to implement sweeping changes across the nation.
But what particularly caught Cotton’s eye was how the media became complicit in hiding the now-infamous FAQ document circulated by the Ocasio-Cortez office, which included lines such as promising a job to “all people of the United States” – including those “unwilling to work” – and making air travel industry obsolete.
“I understand the Democrats that proposed this immediately tried to retract that white paper that went along with their resolution,” Cotton added. “And too many people in the media have been complicit in the Stalin-like or 1984 technique of disappearing it, sending it down the memory hole.” More
Sen. Tom Cotton nails it and the usual outlets like CNN & MSDNC covered it up. If the truth was reported without bias the Democrats would be extinct.
Cotton is only referring to what we all saw happen. The Dems brought it out with fanfare and then had the details buried. When confronted with those facts they denied it and tried to explain it away.
Should be front-page news.

Democrats view success as how many people they can get on government programs. Republicans view success on how many people they can get off of them.
He’s 100% right. This is also another brick in the wall of the fake News foundation. If the truth does NOT enhance or compliment the MSM left leaning bias, it is either skipper over or manipulated to be confusing on purpose.
