FCC Commissioner Rips Dems Trying Shut Down Fox News: ‘Chilling Transgression of Free Speech’

A Federal Communications Commissioner tipped two leading House Democrats over their attempts to shut down Fox News, Newsmax, and OANN.

FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr took issue with California Reps. Anna Eshoo and Jerry McNerney over their attempt calling it a “chilling transgression of free speech.:

“Debate on matters of public interest should be robust, uninhibited and wide-open,” Carr said.

“More speech is better than less. Yet the concerted effort by Democrats to drive political dissent from the public square represents a marked departure from these First Amendment norms”

“A newsroom’s decision about what stories to cover and how to frame them should be beyond the reach of any government official, not targeted by them,” he added.

“To the House Democrats that used their official letterhead to launch this inquiry, I would say this: 

“Your demand to know the ‘moral principles’ that guide a private entity’s decision about what news to carry cannot be reconciled with bedrock principles of free speech and journalistic freedom.

“I call on my FCC colleagues to join me in publicly denouncing this attempt to stifle political speech and independent news judgment,” he

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
