Former NYT executive editor SLAMS New York Times coverage of Ocasio-Cortez

Jill Abramson, former executive editor of the New York Times, had some rather harsh words for her former employer in the aftermath of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s upset win against incumbent and Dem party leader Rep. Joe Crowley: “Kind of pisses me off that @nytimes is still asking Who is Ocasio-Cortez?”

https://t.co/9EjYhKDYs5Kind of pisses me off that @nytimes is still asking Who Is Ocasio-Cortez? when it should have covered her campaign. Missing her rise akin to not seeing Trump's win coming in 2016.

LOL. It’s not quite the “failing New York Times,” but we’ll take it!

I mean, it's a Google-search headline. But still, harsh words for the paper's coverage from the former @nytimes executive editor https://t.co/mxSPxGwrYe

Hey, at least the New York Times knew her name:

BREAKING: U.S. Rep. Joe Crowley defeated by young challenger in Democratic primary in New York.

Apparently the New York Times isn’t liberal enough and that’s why the reporters missed it:

Still waiting on the @nytimes to hire a left-wing columnist, even after its weak-sauce explanation why they didn't feel the need to have a Bernie supporter during his campaign. NYT will go as long as it can pretending that the left doesn't exist except when they 'need a scolding' https://t.co/k4xfgzvWVB

Maybe the New York Times should hire The Nation’s Sean McElwee? He called it back in May:
