Members of the Democrat Party in the House are apparently demanding the right to approve Fox News stories.
You read that right. The fascist Democrats think that Congress should have “oversight” of Fox News.
Not any of the other “news” services. Just Fox.
Not too un-American, huh?
Who needs that ol’ Constitution thingie, anyway?
Incidentally, I’d be just as incensed if someone in Congress proposed that CNN face government approval for its stories, too.
According to Breitbart News:
House Committee on Oversight and Reform chair Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) wrote to former Fox News reporter Diana Falzone last month demanding that she turn over any documents relating to Trump’s alleged extramarital affairs.
An article in the New Yorker last month alleged that Fox News executive Ken LaCorte spiked the story to protect Trump — a claim LaCorte has vehemently denied, saying the story lacked corroborating evidence and that the network was merely practicing responsible journalism, as were other outlets who declined the story.
That article seems to have motivated Cummings’s letter — a letter that not only seeks personal dirt on the president, but seeks information that might be used to review Fox News’ editorial decisions. The committee’s letter suggests that Fox News may have violated campaign finance rules if it tried to help Trump by suppressing the Daniels story.
Of course, neither Elijah Cummings nor any other member of Congress have any right to demand that any news agency tell him what stories they have or don’t have.
This is just more evidence that liberals are truly fascists.
Speaking of fascist leftists, it isn’t just congressional Democrats who exhibit this tendency.
CNN fascist Christiane Amanpour recently asked criminal James Comey if the U.S. government should criminalize “lock her up” chants at conservative events.
The fascist Amanpour told Comey:
Of course, ‘lock her up’ was a feature of the 2016 Trump campaign. Do you, in retrospect, wish that people like yourself, the FBI, I mean, the people in charge of law and order, had shut down that language—that it was dangerous potentially, that it could’ve created violence, that it’s kind of hate speech. Should that have been allowed?
Sorry, you un-American fascist, but free political speech is exactly the sort of speech that the founders wanted to protect.
But you see it here. Liberals all despise free speech and they want to use government as a weapon to destroy anyone that opposes liberalism.
