REVEALED: Fox News DENIED entrance to Ocasio-Cortez town hall after being lied to about ‘capacity’

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez held a town hall last night in New York, but Fox News wasn’t in attendance because they were denied access.

Fox News host Pete Hegseth, also a veteran, applied to get into the town hall but his application was denied.

According to Hegseth, the organizers of the town hall claimed that they were at capacity and couldn’t issue any more press passes.



But video revealed from AOC’s own instagram account shows that the town hall was FAR from capacity.

You can see the footage in the Fox News video above, but here’s a photo to give you an idea:

And that’s just one side of the room. The other side looks almost just like that with plenty of empty seats.

But wait, I thought AOC was more popular than this? How is it that she can’t even fill half a room like this? Shouldn’t it be packed to the gills?

In any event, it’s clear that the organizers lied to keep Fox News out of the room, which is pathetic, especially considering Hegseth is a veteran himself.

  1. Why didn’t they send Juan Williams? He would have been given a seat on the front row.

  2. Lying. The M.O. of the left (communists). Juvenile. Ridiculous childish behavior. As always, they are shameless.

      1. i realize that- but the fact is the left control who is in their audiences, while the left scream bloody heck if they were to be denied participation in fox’s town halls- The audience was packed with bernie supporters while trump supporters stood outside- The left are always screaming about ‘transparency’ and being ‘fair and balanced’ yet they turn around and pull crap like this? Typical bald-faced hypocrites!

  3. But what about that clause of the first amendment that seems to let the leftist press go wherever, do whatever, whenever they want with no restrictions?

    When it comes to trump they are like the bad guy from Lethal Weapon 2, “JOURNALISTIC IMMUNITY!!!” If only Republicans would rub their noses in their own defecation…

  4. Perhaps the Republicans can use this line when they hold town halls…oh wait, they are too chicken to have any….

  5. This is the government Ocasio-Cortez wants for us. One sided, state dictated propaganda. If you don’t agree with me you’re not getting access.

    1. @bob434 It wasnโ€™t โ€œfansโ€ it was media. Specifically Fox News.

  10. Trump never blocked any media from showing up to his events. But he’s the one who is “dangerous to freedom of the press.”

    And no, Acosta doesn’t count.

  11. More evidence. More proof. She’s garbage and is NOT qualified for her office. Arguably, no democrat (and most republicans are either. AOC is a damned disgrace.

    1. How many does that make now, 20? And if Bernie splits the Dem vote by going independent, they will end up spreading themselves too thin.

      1. @watchman I’ve lost count of how many but then again I haven’t been counting. Thought I heard someone say 24 but not sure if that was the “actual” candidates.

        Interesting tidbit. Was watching OAN and they said Biden is going to have trouble because of lobbyists donating to his past campaigns. Between that, the Ukraine and some other things I don’t think he’ll make it. He’s got a lot of baggage and the other candidates will definitely take advantage of this stuff.

  12. AOC doesn’t want anyone rebutting her lies. She, like the rest of the Left, doesn’t want to expose herself to the truth. It may smack her upside her head.

  13. I’d say she didn’t want Fox to be airing how few people were there, but she filmed it herself and it aired anyway.

      1. @teri-smith That’s probably the only reason. She can’t support her ideas so she only wants friendlies that won’t put her feet to the fire..

      2. I think she believes Fox News is โ€œunworthyโ€ of her brilliance! ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜†
