The Democrats’ plan to cancel Fox News just hit this giant roadblock
Democrats in Washington, D.C. have frightening plans for their newfound power.
The Left wants to censor all conservative political views.
But now the Democrats’ plan to cancel Fox News just hit this giant roadblock.
California Representatives Anna Eshoo and Jerry McNerney dispatched a letter to the executives of major cable companies and streaming platforms demanding to know what steps they would take to censor Fox News, Newsmax, and One America News Network.
This letter came ahead of a hearing where Democrats planned to pressure cable and tech companies into censoring news networks that cover stories that Democrats do not like.
But Republican members of the Federal Communications Commission pushed back.
Commissioner Brendan Carr ripped the Democrats in a statement published on the FCC’s official website for an un-American attack on free speech.
“By writing letters to the cable providers and other regulated entities that carry these news media outlets, the Democrats are sending a message that is as clear as it is troubling—these regulated entities will pay a price if the targeted newsrooms do not conform to Democrats’ preferred political narratives,” Carr wrote.
“This is a chilling transgression of the free speech rights that every media outlet in this country enjoys,” Carr added.
Carr’s fellow Republican on the FCC, Nathan Simington, joined to point out how dangerous it was that the Left now labels any viewpoint liberals don’t like as “misinformation” and that elected Democrats are now trying to bully cable companies and streaming services into silencing their political opponents.
“It is worrying that members of the House Energy and Commerce Committee have found it appropriate or necessary to apply the overbroad and vague label of ‘misinformation’ to any media reportage that calls into question their preferred political narratives, and have sought to intimidate into silence those who would distribute on their platforms disfavored points of view,” Simington wrote.
