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. – FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr

Democrats are waging an assault on the First Amendment, with two Democrat House lawmakers demanding answers from cable television providers on the role they play in the “spread of dangerous misinformation.”
The letter, signed by Reps. Anna Eshoo, D-Calif., and Jerry McNerney, D-Calif., and released to the press Monday, targets only conservative-leaning outlets, including Fox News, Newsmax, and OANN.
On Wednesday, the House subcommittee on Communications and Technology of the Committee on Energy and Commerce is scheduled to hold a hearing on disinformation and extremism in media.
Cable service companies such as Comcast, AT&T, Spectrum, Dish, Verizon, Cox, and Altice all received the same letter on Monday pressing for answers on policies related to the spread of disinformation, rumors, and conspiracy theories on networks they carry.
The letter directly only assails conservative news networks Fox News, Newsmax, and OANN and accuses them of airing misinformation on various topics – among them, the coronavirus, the 2020 election, and the storming of the Capitol on Jan. 6.
Newsmax issued a statement Monday decrying what the company said was an attack on the First Amendment. The Newsmax statement read:
“The House Democrats’ attack on free speech and basic First Amendment rights should send chills down the spines of all Americans. Newsmax reported fairly and accurately on allegations and claims made by both sides during the recent election contest. We did not see that same balanced coverage when CNN and MSNBC pushed for years the Russian collusion hoax, airing numerous claims and interviews with Democrat leaders that turned out to be patently false.”
The “Marxification” of America continues.
Any Conservative, or in the case of the “New” Fox News Channel’,”Squishy Moderate” news outlet, deemed as a threat to “the State” must be banished forever.
Don’t believe me?
Look at how ugly the Liberals were on Social Media after the Godfather of Conservative Talk Radio, Rush Limbaugh, passed away.
They called him everything but a child of God.
What the Far Left Capitol Hill Democrats want to do, like their Marxist role models, is to get rid of, or cancel, any political voices who do not praise Marxism or bow the knew to the Democrat Elite.
These Dems are going after these news outlets for the same reason they put a fence around the Capitol Building and the White House: They are deathly afraid of Conservative thought and opinion.
While Liberal political thought and opinion is based on “ideas” leading to “Radical Change”, Conservative political thought and opinion seeks to provide common sense solutions to the problems which we, as Americans, are facing today.
That’s why Rush Limbaugh as said that he lived in “Realityville”.
The “spreading of lies”, especially now that we are experiencing the Obama Administration 2.0, is done mainly by the Main Stream Media and the camera hogs on Capital Hill.
With Joe Biden sitting there asleep in the Oval Office, the Republicans are now spending their days refuting the Democrat lies…not spreading them.
There is no way that why these two Democrats propose is actually going to happen.
However, it certainly does inform average Americans living here in the Heartland as to what the intentions of those who are supposed to be working for US are.
For my vantage point in my man cave in Northwest Mississippi, I would say that the Dems what to turn America into a Democratic Socialist “Paradise”.
Until He Comes,
