[Ed. – ‘Know yourself, know your enemy, and you shall win a hundred battles without loss.’ So goes a proverb quoted by ‘Art of War’ author Sun Tzu and often mistakenly attributed to him. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez might do well to follow that advice — especially the part about knowing your enemy.]
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is unlikely to accept Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy’s debate challenge over the merits of journalists unionizing, according to the media professional.
Ocasio-Cortez appeared to have no idea what the sports news website was when she responded to a stern tweet from Portnoy to his staff, the editor claimed Wednesday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
“I’m not cowering, I’d love to talk to her and have her debate,” he said.
“She did use Barstool Sports … to try to raise some donations. I doubt she’s going to step to the podium.”
The back-and-forth began when Portnoy tweeted a series of anti-union messages, which included a link to a 2015 blog post in which he dared staffers to unionize so he could “smash their little union to smithereens.”
