Newsmax and OAN Back Far-Left Pick for FCC Commissioner Who Wants to Censor Conservative Channels
Breitbart ^ | 11/30/2021 | ALLUM BOKHARI

Posted on 11/30/2021 2:24:48 PM PST by ChicagoConservative27

One America News (OAN) and Newsmax are backing Joe Biden’s far-left, radical pick for FCC commissioner, Gigi Sohn, despite the fact that she and the organization she co-founded have called for the blacklisting of conservative broadcasters — including OAN.

Gigi Sohn has made a number of public statements that should alarm conservatives. She has called for the Sinclair Broadcasting Group, a conservative-owned network of local broadcasters, to be stripped of its license. She has called for an investigation into Fox News, which she has called “dangerous to our democracy” and “state-sponsored propaganda.”

Yep. Newsmax forced out Steve Cortes because he won’t get the jab.

Might be more productive to explain the reasons they are backing her.

I think they want her to go after Foxnews. Fine by me. Foxnews is the reason we even have a Biden presidency. Fox deserves to reap the reward of the communism they brought in.

OANN and Newsmax are backing a Leftist because she hates their competitor Fox. I don’t have much use for Fox, either, especially Chris Wallace and Bret Baier - I don’t back Leftists because of it.

It ‘s all about the money. And the government is the highest bidder. So they sold out.

“I think they want her to go after Foxnews. Fine by me.”
Really?!
You’re OK with the FCC censoring or eliminating broadcasts for political reasons ?!

“Foxnews is the reason we even have a Biden presidency.”
Really?!
Is it conceivable to you that ABC,NBC,CBS,CNN,MSNBC, FecesBook, Twatt, GoogEvil, et al. may have had a teensy tiny little bit to do with it?

She has called for an investigation into Fox News

There is the answer as to why Newsmax and OAN are supporting her.

Like all Demagogic Party a-holes, she is dangerous to our democracy and advocates state-sponsored propaganda.

I have given up on Newsmax. They have gone over to the dark side. You can see the sea change in their stories’ tone.
