Leftists at Free Press Petition FCC To Stop Trump Briefings

Free Press, a leftist media that is completely misnamed, has petitioned the FCC to have Trump’s Daily Coronavirus Briefings taken off the air. It won’t work, of course, but they’re desperate to do anything to keep the President from doing anything for the American people. They based their petition on the morons that took fish tank cleaner and one of them died. Fish tank cleaner. Think about it.

Reminder: at no time did the President EVER tell people to take ANY medication without the advice of a doctor, nor did he EVER tell some fool to take fish tank cleaner. His statements were meant as optimism…something which leftists hate.

But the radical leftists at the Free Press are clearly after Trump to remove him from the public eye. Was his touting of hydroxychloroquine “deadly disinformation?” No. The FDA subsequently issued an emergency order that allows the very medication that President Trump mentioned as an effective treatment for COVID-19. The Free Press must be frothing at the mouth by now.

 The Free Press petition weaponizes a political agenda

“This is a sweeping and dangerous attempt by the far left to weaponize the FCC against conservative media outlets and elected officials. They want to turn the FCC into a roving speech police empowered to go after the left’s political opponents.” Brendan Carr, FCC Commissioner

The Free Press hasn’t just attacked President Trump over his daily coronavirus briefings. They also want Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh removed to “De-Trump the airwaves.” They used the couple who ingested fish tank cleaner as the reason for their petition. Blaming the President for the couple doing that is ridiculous.

Their petition reads:

It is unlawful for broadcasters to air misinformation that threatens public health and safety. But right now Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh are using their radio shows on the public airwaves to spread false information about the COVID-19 crisis. And television broadcasters are airing President Trump’s dangerous misinformation without providing a disclaimer. This has arguably cost people their lives.

The FCC must remind broadcasters of their duty to prevent the spread of misinformation and it must investigate outlets that spread false information without issuing disclaimers. In the case of the president, the FCC should urge broadcasters to provide disclaimers when he utters false — and potentially dangerous — information about coronavirus.

The FCC has a responsibility to stop the spread of misinformation about coronavirus on the public airwaves. Please act before even more lives are lost.”

So let’s see: Free Press is a “spectacularly misnamed” left wing lobbyist group run by an avowed socialist named Robert McChesney, who praised Venezuela’s handling of the media, and wants to dismantle American capitalism brick by brick, according to the Federalist.

McChesney and his leftist fools will not win. Anti-Trump hate will not win.
