Democrats in Congress are taking their newfound power to dangerous new places.
Free speech and the ability of Americans to oppose the Democrat agenda are target number one.
And now Democrats produced one letter that could cancel Fox News.
The network’s so-called “chief media analyst” Brian Stelter claimed this was a “harm reduction model.”
In a frightening escalation of cancel culture, two Democrat Congressmen—California Representatives Anna G. Eshoo and Jerry McNerney—fired off a letter to cable providers Comcast, AT&T, Spectrum, Dish, Verizon, Cox and Altice and streaming services Roku, Amazon, Apple, Google and Hulu demanding they explain why they continued to carry Fox News.
“To our knowledge, the cable, satellite and over-the-top companies that disseminate these media outlets to American viewers have done nothing in response to the misinformation aired by these outlets,” Eshoo and McNerney wrote.
In the letter, Eshoo and McNerney blamed cable companies for the January 6 Capitol riot because they failed to censor Fox News, Newsmax and One America News Network.
“What steps did you take prior to, on and following the Nov. 3, 2020, elections and the Jan. 6, 2021, attacks 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?” the letter continued.
The Democrats’ letter demanded the cable operators either drop Fox News, Newsmax and One America News or explain why they would not cancel those networks.
“Are you planning to continue carrying Fox News, OANN and Newsmax on your platform both now and beyond the renewal date?” Eshoo and McNerney added. “If so, why?”
Fox blasted the Democrats’ letter calling politicians demanding that cable companies censor news networks they don’t like as un-American.
“For individual members of Congress to highlight political speech they do not like and demand cable distributors engage in viewpoint discrimination sets a terrible precedent,” a Fox statement read.
Eshoo and McNerney wrote their letter ahead of a hearing where Democrats planned to grill cable company executives and pressure them to cancel conservative news networks as a political favor to the Democrat Party.
The rest of the corporate media is now raising any objections to members of Congress demanding their political preferences dictate which news channels Americans can watch on TV.
Ever since Democrats took over the White House and Congress, restricting the ability of anyone to oppose their agenda shot to priority number one.
Democrats pressured Big Tech to censor President Trump and his supporters and Silicon Valley complied.
Critics contend Democrats want thousands of troops patrolling the Capitol in a military occupation to intimidate anyone from protesting Joe Biden’s agenda.
And now Democrats are attempting to bully cable companies into censoring news that Democrats find objectionable.
