Skip to comments.AOC says commission being 'discussed' to help ‘rein in’ media environment after Capitol riot

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said that Congress is "looking into" media literacy initiatives to help "rein in" the press to combat misinformation in the wake of last week’s deadly breach of the U.S. Capitol.
During a lengthy live stream on Instagram on Tuesday night, the leader of the so-called "Squad" discussed the aftermath of the Capitol riot, how she feared for her life during the chaos and what needs to be done going forward.
At one point, Ocasio-Cortez read a question from a viewer who asked if there is discussion in Congress on "truth and reconciliation or media literacy initiatives" to help with healing.
"I can say, there is absolutely a commission being discussed but it seems to be more investigatory, in style rather than truth and reconciliation, so I think that’s an interesting concept for us to explore, and I do think that several members of Congress, in some of my discussions, have brought up media literacy because that is a part of what happened here and we’re going to have to figure out how we rein in our media environment so that you can’t just spew disinformation and misinformation," Ocasio-Cortez said.

Worse, there's no sign they will begin to fight now, either.
The next four years are going to be an interesting exercise...
“truth and reconciliation or media literacy initiatives”
Or as they were known in Cambodia: Killing Fields
When the people fear the government there’s tyranny....when the government fears the people there’s liberty.
AOC used a six syllable word? Well, now I'm impressed. /s
When I need “help” with managing the media environment, it sure as heck would NOT be coming from a jackass puppet like AOC.
Republicans deserve it for rolling for Dems every chance they got. Republicans only lost because the elites refused to back Trump (ex: Paul Ryan)
Fascists must have their ministry of truth.
AOC, can you speak about how someone from BLM and was leading the invasion can claim to have been there as a neutral reporter just observing things?
You don’t wind up next to the woman who was shot if you are observing from a safe distance.
THEIR “truth”. Not THE truth.
Oh look, Joseph Goebbels is being raised from the dead. And he’ll most likely be voting Democrat too.
These people right now are doing a lot of talking.
Red meat for their fans.
But one thing is for sure, just like when they tried to get Garland through to the Supreme Court very late in Obama’s........that can back to bite them in the a$$ and was used to get ACB on the Court.
What I’m saying is someone like AOC doesn’t realize that they won’t be in power forever. So tweak the 1st Amendment fool.......we’ll use it when we have the power.
Elders in their party will put the breaks on most of this talking going on.
I am 150% done with the Republicucks. I can only count on two things from now on. God and my guns.
I guess she is looking to achieve the socialist dream “right to unity of opinion”.
They want the media to have the same free flow of thoughts and information as a college campus.
This woman is TRULY an idiot. I cannot think of anything to further inflame the situation more, than such a statement.
. . . .
Well, on reflection, I guess she could announce mass summary trials and executions.
Never let facts get in the way of “truth”.
The best way to achieve her goals is simple: ban ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, PBS, and, yes, FOX News.
