NBC political “journalist” Marianna Sotomayor proved she knows nothing about politics (or Google) when she falsely claimed that 2020 was the “first time in history … more than one female politician” ran for president.
Even a political “reporter” for a major news network can be forgiven for being unaware of Shirley Chisholm and Patsy Mink running for the Democrat nomination in 1972.
How do you miss 2016 — you know, that presidential election where Carly Fiorna ran for the Republican nomination, Jill Stein ran on the Green Party ticket, and Hillary Clinton clinched the Democrat nomination (for those keeping score, that’s three female presidential candidates) …
How is blatant misinformation like this allowed to stand uncorrected on a verified Twitter account owned by a major network’s political reporter for 15 hours?
What I should have written is that the field of Democratic women presidential candidates is the largest in history,” she tweeted Monday.
