Members of Congress Attempt to Get Media License Revoked Over Ideological Differences

If you ever want to know just how close America could be to becoming a nation of social justice tyranny, just look at what some members of Congress tried to do this time. I don’t mean some ordinary folks shutting down free speech on a campus. I’m talking about a dozen U.S. senators who just went on a liberty-infringing rampage. These senators, led by Maria Cantwell (D-WA), tried to use federal law to shut down speech with which they disagree.

Apparently, the senators are concerned about “broadcast licensees [Sinclair Media Group (SMG)] deliberately distorting news by staging, slanting, or falsifying information (traditionally known as the news distortion standard).” This accusation is coming from Democratic senators!
