Of course they are. This was inevitable, and probably not the first time radical leftists tried to shut us up at the source. They won’t stop, just get that in your head. And their best reason NOW is so-called ‘misinformation’.
Two House Democrats sent letters Monday to a dozen television broadcasters suggesting that they stop airing Fox News, Newsmax, and One America News Network, a move which a Republican commissioner on the FCC called a “chilling transgression” aimed at de-platforming the conservative networks. Read the rest here.
‘Fact’ checkers are glorified, conservatives vilified. Not that this hasn’t been going on for years, but now it’s so out loud and proud. Leftists now use the Capitol breach as their reason to keep conservatives from congregating online and in person. Why else is the wall in DC still up? I would bet that wall will be up until the ’24 election.
Democrat ‘lawmakers’ sent letters to AT&T, Verizon, Roku, Amazon, Apple, Comcast, Charter, Dish, Cox, Altice, Alphabet [Google] and Hulu: “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.”
Eshoo and McNerney sit on the House Committee on Energy & Commerce, which will hold a hearing on Wednesday entitled “Fanning the Flames: Disinformation and Extremism in the Media.” but did not count on the response from the FCC [below]. The Federal Communications Commission KNOW what suppression and censorship looks is, and this quacks like a duck.
Big Tech is looking a bit small and pathetic now. I would imagine their power and worth is very shaky when influencers and conservatives still have a voice and a platform. They also know their agenda won’t last past the next election cycle, if that. So time is not on their side.
