And so it begins. With a Democratic administration coupled with big tech showing not only willingness but enthusiasm to shut down conservative pages, accounts and even the President of the United States, the time for progressives to make their move is ripe. Cancel culture is ‘cool’ for Democrats, and congressmen Anna Eshoo and Jerry McNerney “sent letters to 12 major cable providers Monday pressuring them to stop hosting right-wing news outlets like Newsmax, One America News Network (OANN) and Fox News.
Foreign Desk News reports that Eshoo and McNerney sent letters to AT&T, Verizon, Roku, Amazon, Apple, Comcast Corporation, Charter Communications, Dish Network, Cox Communications, Altice USA, Alphabet Inc. and Hulu “questioning the service providers’ ‘moral or ethical principles’ related to their private business decision to host conservative outlets.”
The representatives’ letter claims, amongst other nonsense, “Newsmax, OANN and Fox news are causing ‘real harm’ and that ‘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.”
Not surprisingly, Eshoo and McNerney made zero mention of any left-leaning media outlets who have aired “misinformation.” FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr gave this poignant response: “By writing letters to the cable providers and other regulated entities that carry these news media outlets, 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 narrative.”
