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.

“Are you planning to continue carrying Fox News, OANN, and Newsmax on your platform both now and beyond the renewal date?” California Reps. Anna G. Eshoo and Jerry McNerney wrote in a letter to the companies.

“If so, why?” they asked.

The letters were sent to AT&T, Verizon, Roku, Amazon, Apple, Comcast, Charter, Dish, Cox, Altice, Alphabet and Hulu.

Eshoo and McNerney asked the companies what steps they took after the 2020 presidential election “to monitor, respond to, and reduce the spread of disinformation, including encouragement or incitement of violence by channels your company disseminates to millions of Americans?”

Wow, shouldn't they be looking at the lies spread about Kavanagh, the false Russian colludion narrative, how our vice president provided bail money foresters, burners, rioters?

The Commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission said only two signatures, both California Democrats, but WE are NOT out of the woods. Last night on Newsmax.

The FCC used to regulate what could be said on air. I really think we should go back to the fairness doctrine. Like the Big Lie and the much tooted non fact that the Texas disaster was caused by wind turbines got air time they shouldn't have. The wind turbines wete out for a day or two. The natural gas plants were out for the better part of a week.

I disagree with this. The FCC is 'the government' and I do now want any government entity 'regulating' what I hear/see/read. - no matter which party is in charge.

Is that a rational response.
The airwaves are regulated by the government. The broadcasters lease their time on the airwaves owned by the people.
It is the choice of the people to decide what is allowable or not.
If these stations plan to continue spin politics, innuendo, projection, and of course Lies, then they may need to appear before the board to justify what it is they are doing to make us great again . If blurring all the obvious lines, creating an up is down sentiment then maybe they should be reeled in a bit.
Another option for youz would be to resume broadcasting on Wolfman Jacks Channel.

Wrong - unless you want to change the Constitution. Try reading it some time - along with the history pertaining to it.
