The truth that a pro-censorship Biden FCC nominee is related to Soros ought to concern each American who cares about freedom. The Wall Road Journal Editorial Board warned that Sohn has “hinted at deploying the company’s regulatory energy to censor conservative media and revive a model of its mooted equity doctrine.” Sohn’s “strident partisanship ought to disqualify her from serving as an officer of an impartial company with a lot energy to regulate the general public airwaves,” The Journal declared.
Sohn’s Twitter account tweeted a number of assaults towards Fox Information: “For all my issues about #Fb, I imagine that Fox Information has had essentially the most destructive affect on our democracy.” In one other tweet, Sohn questioned whether or not Fox Information was extra harmful to democracy than social media: “So do you continue to need me to imagine that social media is extra harmful to our democracy than Fox Information?” In a tweet, Sohn demanded that Congress drag in Fox Information to be grilled over what she deemed “misinformation”: “So the subsequent time Congress brings in Mark Zuckerberg 4 a listening to on misinformation, Murdoch or Suzanne Scott ought to be a part of him on the witness desk.”
Soros funded at the least $3,039,780 into the Aspen Institute, which paradoxically launched a fee earlier this 12 months chaired by radical liberals to battle so-called “misinformation.” Soros additionally backed another leftist operation by “fake news” peddler Tara McGowan in an effort to battle so-called “disinformation.” Sohn complaining about Fox Information “misinformation” whereas allying herself with a financier of left-wing misinformation operations is ridiculous.
Sohn has tried to gaslight Huge Tech’s overwhelming censorship of conservatives. Sohn erroneously tweeted that the claims of Huge Tech bias towards conservatives had been “phony”: “For years, @Twitter & @Fb tried to appease @realDonaldTrump & different right-wing extremists on phony claims of conservative bias. It did not work.” In one other tweet, Sohn attacked Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) for calling out Huge Tech bias towards conservatives: “@Jim_Jordan rants and raves about so-called anti-conservative bias on on-line platforms, which everyone knows is a bunch of BS.”
No shock – @Jim_Jordan rants and raves about so-called anti-conservative bias on on-line platforms, which everyone knows is a bunch of BS. However does he need 2 strengthen #antitrust legislation or regulate the platforms in order that they are not so highly effective? Nah. #BigTechHearing
