Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slams the New York Times over its “glam shot” of Hope Hicks, who has been subpoenaed by the House Judiciary Committee. “Her actions are getting framed as some Lifetime drama called Hope’s Choice.”

Ocasio-Cortez tweeted: “What gets me is news breaks that this woman is weighing committing a crime before Congress &it’s getting framed by the NYT as some Lifetime drama called “Hope’s Choice.”

The freshman lawmaker was echoing veteran journalist Soledad O’Brien’s criticism of the “glam shot.”

“In the immediate aftermath of shootings, media routinely post menacing photos of people-of-color victims + dredge up any questionable thing they’d ever done. But when Hope Hicks considers not complying w a subpoena, it’s glamour shot time,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.

“This is a good example of bias in the @nytimes: a picture of a person who is considering not complying with a subpoena is basically a glam shot, and it’s framed as a thoughtful, perfectly equal choice” O’Brien tweeted.

Rep. Ilhan Omar weighed in: “Everyone should know complying with subpoenas aren’t optional, it’s the law.”
