Democrats have wanted to shut down Fox News for decades.
Now the left believes their moment to achieve this long sought-after victory is finally here.
And one key Joe Biden ally just dropped this huge bombshell about BANNING Fox News.
MSNBC’s Katie Phang interviewed Democrat Congressman Eric Swalwell.
One of the main topics was Dominion’s $1.6 billion defamation suit against Fox News after Fox reported on Donald Trump’s attorneys Sydney Powell and Rudy Giuliani claiming – falsely it turned out – that the voting machines stole the election from Donald Trump.
MSNBC and other corporate media outlets see this as an opportunity to either bankrupt Fox News or pressure the Murdoch family to bring in new management, fire top stars like Tucker Carlson, and turn Fox into a clone of CNN and other leftwing corporate media outlets.
Phang told Swalwell she was “worried” about the “harm” Fox inflicts on America through the supposed “disinformation and the misinformation pumped out of Fox News.”
That led Phang – a member of the media – to ask Swalwell, with a straight face, about the Biden administration censoring Fox News or even closing the channel down.
“Has there been any discussions in Congress about maybe congressional oversight, regulations, maybe the FCC getting involved?” asked Phang. “I know we all respect the First Amendment, Congressman, but should there be some type of gatekeeping that happens so that this doesn’t happen again?”
One of the pressure points Swalwell and Phang discussed was the leftwing group VoteVets demanding the Biden administration ban Fox News on military bases.
Swalwell admitted that watching American television while deployed overseas provides the troops a sense of normalcy.
“Nothing makes them feel more like home than their access to American television programming,” Swalwell began.
But Swalwell cited the left’s favorite bugaboo words “dis- and misinformation” as justification for Biden to censor Fox News on military bases.
“I don’t want to get in the business of telling troops what they can and cannot watch,” Swalwell added. “But, if you have a news station that a court is going to rule is, in its evening hour, you know, perpetuating dis- and misinformation, I don’t know if I disagree with VoteVets, who was saying that we need to take a look at, you know, how this is being broadcast to our troops.”
Swalwell flexed that the Democrats had tools at their disposal to censor Fox News.
“I don’t think we’re without complete recourse,” Swalwell warned.
It cannot be understated how Donald Trump winning the 2016 election broke the brains of Democrats.
After Trump won, CNN began a successful pressure campaign to force Facebook and Twitter to censor conservatives.
This censorship regime culminated with Facebook and Twitter censoring the Hunter Biden laptop story in October 2020 and eventually banning Donald Trump following January 6.
Democrats think it should be illegal to oppose them and that anyone who disagrees with their agenda is causing harm and inciting violence.
And slowly but surely it will soon become the mainstream Democrat Party position that the government should censor Fox News and all other conservative media.
