Today two Democratic members of Congress sent letters to the presidents of Comcast, AT&T, Verizon, Cox, Dish, and other cable and satellite companies implying that they should either stop carrying Fox News, One America News Network, and Newsmax or pressure them to change their coverage. According to the lawmakers, these conservative channels are responsible for promoting misinformation and political violence.
“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,” wrote Reps. Anna Eshoo and Jerry McNerney, both of California.
But don’t worry. The Libertardians at Reason are on the case!
Make no mistake: The letter to television providers was an act of intimidation. This behavior is equally unacceptable when Republicans do it: Calls to regulate tech companies because Facebook, Twitter, and Google make moderation decisions that irritate conservatives are also threats to free speech. Members of both political parties are intent on wielding their power to curb the speech of their adversaries, which is precisely why the government does not—and should not—have the power to compel or censor speech.
What a pathetic bunch of utopian “principled” pussies.
The left outsources censorship to the tech oligarchs, who are more than happy to oblige.
But the real world doesn’t fit into the Libertard’s utopian bubble view, and so they simply ignore this ugly fact, and proceed with their strongly worded letter to the leftists currently destroying liberty in America, as if that will do anything at all to protect those liberties.
They hated Trump, these Libertards. Now he’s gone. Enjoying yourselves yet, doper pussyboys?
