As we told you earlier, the New York Times took a closer look at Mayra Flores and “the rise of the far-Right Latina.” It’s clear how the coverage of Texas Republican Rep. Flores, the first female Mexican-born member of the House, is going to shape up in the media moving forward:

For years, Texas Republicans tried to win the Hispanic vote using a Bush-era brand of compassionate conservatism. The idea was that a moderate’s touch and a softer rhetoric on immigration were key to making inroads with Hispanic voters, particularly in Democratic strongholds along the southern border.

Such was the Texas of old. The Trump age has given rise to a new brand of Texas Republicans, one of whom is already walking the halls of Congress: the far-right Latina.

If Flores had a “D” after her name, perhaps the coverage would be different. Drew Holden was among those noticing that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez got treated differently in the headlines:

Oh yeah, that is a very subtle difference!

Could the media possibly be more predictable?

Good question.

“It’s not news, it’s narrative” should be the new tagline for the Times, WaPo, etc.
