House Dems Demand To Know Why Cable Outlets Aren't Censoring Right-Wing News...Disinformation and Extremism in the Media
Not even two months into their reign as the majority party that controls the White House and both houses of Congress, key Democrats have made clear that one of their top priorities is censorship of divergent voices. On Saturday, I detailed how their escalating official campaign to coerce and threaten social media companies into more aggressively censoring views that they dislike — including by summoning social media CEOs to appear before them for the third time in less than five months — is implicating, if not already violating, core First Amendment rights of free speech.

Now they are going further — much further. The same Democratic House Committee that is demanding greater online censorship from social media companies now has its sights set on the removal of conservative cable outlets, including Fox News, from the airwaves

The House Energy and Commerce Committee on Monday announced a February 24 hearing, convened by one of its sub-committees, entitled “Fanning the Flames: Disinformation and Extremism in the Media.” Claiming that “the spread of disinformation and extremism by traditional news media presents a tangible and destabilizing threat,” the Committee argues: “Some broadcasters’ and cable networks’ increasing reliance on conspiracy theories and misleading or patently false information raises questions about their devotion to journalistic integrity.”

Since when is it the role of the U.S. Government to arbitrate and enforce precepts of “journalistic integrity”? Unless you believe in the right of the government to regulate and control what the press says — a power which the First Amendment explicitly prohibits — how can anyone be comfortable with members of Congress arrogating unto themselves the power to dictate what media outlets are permitted to report and control how they discuss and analyze the news of the day?

But what House Democrats are doing here is far more insidious than what is revealed by that creepy official announcement. Two senior members of that Committee, Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-Silicon-Valley) and Rep. Jerry McNerney (D-CA) also sent their own letters to seven of the nation’s largest cable providers — Comcast, AT&T, Spectrum, Dish, Verizon, Cox and Altice — as well as to digital distributors of cable news (Roku, Amazon, Apple, Google and Hulu) demanding to know, among other things, what those cable distributors did to prevent conservative “disinformation” prior to the election and after — disinformation, they said, that just so happened to be spread by the only conservative cable outlets: Fox, Newsmax and OANN.

When all you do is lie, cheat and steal...anyone offering the truth is a real threat to your plan.

The democommunists are the most underhanded and despicable group of people ever to walk the lands of this world.

Insidious, deviant and wicked.

The idea of censoring speech is straight out of totalitarian ideologies...and they aren't even hiding it anymore.

They mean to rule with an iron fist and unless people wake up, it's coming sooner rather than later

This doesn't compare to what Trump did. All Congress is doing is asking cable providers to not transmit Fox, OANN and NewsMax because they destabilize our Democracy. This should be a breath of fresh air after Trump tweeted out "fake news" and said the media was the "enemy of the people". (and now he is banned for life). /s

The other frightening thing- I have Democratic family and friends in my life, who actually agree with and support this nonsense.

They constantly say the pro-Trump/Conservative podcasts and/or news channels I listen to, brainwwash people into believing fake news and lies. They actually get angry that I don't follow MSM channels and have threatened to take my internet away.

These people are straight up, hardcore Nazi's. And they BELIEVE they are correct.

Very scary times.

Kamala Harris is not a Natural Born Citizen. She's illegally running.

Book I of The Law of Nations, Chapter XIX, § 212 (Joseph Chitty numbering) – “Citizens and natives”
reads: 'The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to
its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in
the country, of parents who are citizens. As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by
the children of the citizens
, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all
their rights.' 1758 Emerich de Vattel

They can pass any law they want now that they have a majority.
Anything unconstitutional will have to be challenged by some state official to the SCOTUS.
And hopefully the SCOTUS will do the right thing and uphold the Constitution.
Although, how hard is it to blackmail 3 or 4 SCOTUS justices to ignore the Constitution?
