Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) was mentioned 3,181 times on Fox News and Fox Business during the 6 weeks from Feb. 25 to April 7 — 75 times a day — according to the liberal Media Matters for America.

The big picture: "Not a day went by when she wasn’t spoken about on Fox," AP notes. Among the names that Fox hosts called Ocasio-Cortez include "little girl," "Comrade Cortez," an "idiotic wind bag," "the Steve Bannon of the left" and more. Fox Business host Stuart Varney even acknowledged: "We have an AOC segment every single day almost every single hour” because "she is good for our ratings."

The Democratic chairs of the House Oversight and House Foreign Affairs committees announced subpoenas Monday for four State Department officials as part of their investigation into the firing of former Inspector General Steve Linick.

Why it matters: The two committees, in addition to Democrats on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, are investigating whether Linick was fired because he was probing Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the State Department's attempts to bypass Congress to sell weapons to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
