When you're right, you're right.

She's not afraid of Zuckerberg either. Fearless.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., claimed in a new interview that social media is a “public health risk” posing many negative effects, including “depression” and “addiction.”

“Social media poses a public health risk to everybody,” Ocasio-Cortez said in an interview on Yahoo News' “Skullduggery” podcast. “There are amplified impacts for young people, particularly children under the age of 3, with screen time. But I think it has a lot of effects on older people. I think it has effects on everybody. Increased isolation, depression, anxiety, addiction, escapism.”

Ocasio-Cortez prefaced her comments by stating she had deleted her own personal Facebook, even though she still maintains campaign accounts while connecting with her followers mainly on Twitter and Instagram.

“I personally gave up Facebook, which was kind of a big deal because I started my campaign on Facebook. And Facebook was my primary digital organizing tool for a very long time. I gave up on it,” said Ocasio-Cortez.

Ocasio-Cortez is one of the most influential members of Congress on social media, amassing almost 4 million Twitter followers and more than 3 million on Instagram.

In January, the freshman representative helped lead a social media session with other Democratic lawmakers.

Last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., jabbed at Ocasio-Cortez in an interview with USA Today over her social media habits.

“While there are people who have a large number of Twitter followers, what’s important is that we have large numbers of votes on the floor of the House,” Pelosi said. (Keep it up, smart-ass, AOC will put you in your place.-drvoke)

Not a chance. That is the main communication line between politicians and their constituents.

As long as she put up a façade or moral outrage, it would just make her more popular.

So she DOESN'T walk the walk.  Politicians communicated with their constituents for 226 years without Facebook.

She may have meant her personal page. She probably allows fundraising pages. She did graduate with a degree in economics after all.

Maybe AOC has some ideas for legislation concerning this public health risk. She seems to be on top of things. I'll give her ideas the proper gravitas.
