Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is blasting the Daily Caller for publishing a fake nude photo of her and then not annotating it in the headline.
NOTE: The Daily Caller (DC) has changed the headline as of this article.
Here are the facts. The DC published a story of a woman’s feet in a bathtub claiming it was Ocasio-Cortez. I don’t know where the “nude” comes in if it were only feet but so goes life. The rumor about it being Ocasio-Cortez’s feet was squashed, but the DC didn’t change the title until recently.
The DC has also updated their article to notify readers that the photo was another woman, who came forward claiming it was her feet instead.
For those out of the loop, Republicans began to circulate a fake nude photo of me. The @DailyCaller reposted it (!) and refused to indicate it was fake in the title as well.
Completely disgusting behavior from Conservative outlets.
No wonder they defended Kavanaugh so fiercely.

The photo went viral this week after people circulated it on Reddit, claiming it showed Ocasio-Cortez. It shows a pair of feet in a bathtub, but a blurred reflection of a nude female torso is also visible.
Motherboard on Monday reported that the photo was actually of the political activist Sydney Leathers, who told the outlet the picture showed her body and “is a few years old.”
The Daily Caller on Monday reported Motherboard’s story under the headline “Here’s The Photo Some People Described As A Nude Selfie of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.”
Though it is accurate to say “some people described” the photo as showing Ocasio-Cortez, the headline did not acknowledge that those people had already been found to be wrong.

Just publishing the smut story is nothing about news, it’s about clicks. It has nothing to do with anything. Many of us were angry when liberals found old pictures of Melania Trump when she was younger and promoted those as nude so why do the same thing?
Where is the better of us?
