    So much for a "Free Press"

    You will know what WE want you to know

    Washington Examiner logo Liberal Media Scream: CNN wants conservative media squelched in ‘national emergency’

    This week’s Liberal Media Scream features CNN’s senior media reporter demanding the targeting of conservative media outlets who ignored their anti-Trump bias in reporting on the president and his administration.

    On Sunday’s Reliable Sources, Oliver Darcy demanded conservative news sources be “held accountable,” clearly suggesting that they must be squelched, an expansion of the so-called “cancel culture” imposed with glee by outlets such as Twitter and Facebook on conservatives and even President Trump.

    He cited Fox News and “TV providers that beam OAN and Newsmax into homes, or Rush Limbaugh. There are a lot of people profiting off of lies and conspiracy theories.”

    He insisted, “this informational environment” must be “cleaned up.”

    Darcy, at the end of the Sunday’s Reliable Sources:

    “The story this week was bringing our informational crisis to the forefront. It’s a national emergency. You have corporations and people that are profiting off lies and conspiracy theories, whether that’s big tech, whether that’s Fox News, whether that’s TV providers that beam OAN and Newsmax into homes, or Rush Limbaugh. There are a lot of people profiting off of lies and conspiracy theories and I don’t really see how things get better, how we move on as a country, until this informational environment is cleaned up.”

    After host Brian Stelter complained that “Fox News, the Murdochs, they are still enabling this stuff, because they’re obsessing over big tech bias, that’s what they call it, and trying to ignore the riot,” Darcy demanded:
    Well, it was a good run while it lasted.
    We are so fucked.

    It always tickles me when these pompous assholes think their side spreads the truth.

    The proposals to "license" journalists and subsidize chosen outlets like the NYT still lurk in the wings. (I think should the NYT become the state media, they should be forced to rename themselves Pravda. "Forced" might be the wrong word. They might leap at the chance. "All the news that Walter Duranty would see fit to print.")
    • "Are you going to be responsible for the rioting if we hear this case?" — Chief Justice Roberts, who apparently had a secret codicil to his oath of office.
    • "Thieves only carry weapons for self-protection and to provide the householder an incentive to cooperate." — Texas State House Rep. Terry Meza, proposing to bar "castle defense" protection for victims of home invasions.
    • "The way I see it, there's always, c'mon, there's always money. It's there." — Elizabeth Warren, explaining socialism.
    • “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.... We really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.” — Saikat Chakrabarti, then AOC's Chief of Staff.
    • "We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them." — CNN's Don Lemon, showing how to stop demonizing people.
