“Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez” Technically, she does not have the tile of Congresswoman.  She is “Member-elect of the U.S. House of Representatives.”  Once Joe Crowley, the lame duck (actual term for his situation) is out of office on January 3, 2019 and is replaced by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, then she can be called a Congresswoman, Representative, Congressperson, or whatever you want to call her at that time.

Technically she's Congresswoman-elect.  

Anywho, that's a red herring.

She has absolutely zero power right now so it does matter.  Maybe once she gets into office she might make a difference but I don't care to hear from her now as she is currently a nobody.

Hah that's a very weird ad hominem approach.  Anyway, she was democratically elected so you'll just have to deal with it.  She also has a huge social media following, so it appears plenty of people do want to hear frrom a Congresswoman-elect.

Whatever.  People here on Boreme even listen to Roe Rogan even though he's not an elected official.  Seems like Boreme posts things from the same channels consistently like TYT, Joe Rogan, David Packman, and anything with Chomsky in it.

That's right.  BoreMe even lets normal members of the public share their opinions in the comment sections.  Apparently, even though Cortez has been elected, you don't actually need to be elected in order to have an interesting point of view.  Sounds crazy, I know.

I suppose BoreMe videos are curated by people with opinions.  Thankfully there are other websites out there, so if people don't like the editors' tastes they can look elsewhere.  Or whine about it in the comments.  Their choice.

I don't mind other people's opinions but it's clear that the opinion of the Boreme Editor is extremely liberal.  It would be nice to show videos with mixed views but we will never see that happen here.

AFAIK this website makes no pretence at being impartial, at representing all views equally, at catering for every opinion.

You don't like it because it's not liberal, so find a website that's not liberal.  Simple.  There are plenty of them.
