Vox founder Ezra Klein can’t believe Vox’s — um, Fox News’ — focus on AOC and not Bernie Sanders

Matt Grossman is a political scientist at Michigan State, and he made a few observations about the Democratic field that have surprised him so far:

And we’ll have to take Grossman’s word on No. 4: We know Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says Fox News is obsessed with her and even likes to call her just “Cortez” because it’s more stereotypically Hispanic-sounding and therefore scarier to Fox News’ xenophobic white audience.

Vox founder Ezra Klein also picked out the focus on Ocasio-Cortez and not her socialist comrade Bernie Sanders.
