CRTV fakes an interview with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, get a million views before declaring it “satire”

CRTV host Allie Beth Stuckey faked a “hard hitting” interview with Congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The video got over a million views of people seeing Ocasio-Cortez stumble over some questions before CRTV “updated” the Facebook post to say it was satire, and the candidate’s responses were taken from a PBS interview she gave last week. Journalism at its finest.

The update after a million views: “Yes, this is satire created from excerpts of the viral Firing Line interview with Ocasio-Cortez.”

Original tweet promoting the “interview”: “.@conservmillen grills congressional hopeful and progressive “it girl” @Ocasio2018 on her socialist agenda and knowledge of government… or lack thereof.”

One hour ago, suddenly it’s satire: Hilarious satire! Allie grills congressional hopeful and progressive it girl @Ocasio2018 on her socialist agenda and knowledge of government… or lack thereof. Watch more from @conservmillen on CRTV!
