Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell has caved to outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and will allow the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) to include the highly controversial media cartel bill the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act (JCPA), sources familiar with the matter told Breitbart News.
The JCPA, essentially a transfer of wealth from Silicon Valley to the discredited and distrusted corporate legacy media, is highly controversial. Beyond the financial payouts to media companies, they will be able to form a “joint negotiating entity” — a cartel, immune from antitrust law — to negotiate with Big Tech companies on the “terms and conditions” for carrying their content.
The bill still contains plenty of ways for the cartel to sideline conservative media. (Snip)

Dems, Swamp, and Lobbyists get huge Win.
He didn’t “cave”. The a-hole was on board the whole time.
Yup! Post mid terms=business as usual.
With “Republicans” like McConnell what is the point of voting?
There are no more political solutions.
Worst. Republican. Senate. Leader. Ever.
He’s not Republican
He’s a foreign agent
And won’t use it as leverage to remove the vaccine mandate for service personnel.
“He didn’t “cave”. The a-hole was on board the whole time.”
Exactly my thought.
a large portion of the LEFTIST media is funded by cable subscriber fees
half of CNN revenue is cable subscriber fees
stop funding the enemy
cut the cable tv
and now we know why the turtle is the turtle
I remember so well a few years back when Trump tried to attach a rider to a defense bill that stripped social media from liability protection. Republican and democrat senators protested: “That has nothing to do with national defense!” and blocked its inclusion in the bill.
Yeah, I’m surprised Breitbart uses that term. It makes it sound like the Red Squad leader was not in on the fix from the beginning.
It still amazes me how they title these bills to imply the diametrical opposite of their intention.
And we can’t get rid of him. And they won’t allow us to put anybody in office who WOULD get rid of him.
So the gravy train continues.
Cut the cable tv.
Exactly. We haven't had cable in over 30 years.
We don't miss it.
I’m guessing Mitch don’t like Twitter.
There will be lawsuits —I hope?
Are these swamp-dwellers relying on that being inevitable?
It’s hard to find any silver lining here. Help!
Congratulations to the dumbass Republican Senators who revoted this slimy democrat to be their leader. I include my two senators, Barrassos and Lumis among those idiots.
