She’s just get­ting started

The Washington Post - - FREE FOR ALL -

The Nov. 30 Re­li­able Source item “Alexan­dria Oca­sio-Cortez: The movie!” noted that Rep.-elect Alexan­dria Oca­sio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) ousted a 10-term con­gress­man (thereby) “be­com­ing the youngest woman to serve in the House.” Un­til her term be­gins in Jan­uary, she re­mains the youngest woman elected to serve in the House, but, re­gard­less of how much she’s do­ing now to learn the ropes or hire staff, she’s a con­gress­woman-elect and she’s not serv­ing.

Even a ca­sual, breezy col­umn should ad­here to the ba­sic stan­dards of ac­cu­rate jour­nal­ism that ought to be de rigueur for any Post staffer. Joan Hart­man Moore, Alexan­dria
