Over the past few years, the Mainstream Media outlets like the New York Times, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, the Washington Post, CBS, and other left-wing outlets targeted innocent kids, which has resulted in lawsuits for millions of dollars! Still, the Media refused to correct the record and print the truth, until after the lawsuits were filed! They have promoted threats against President Trump, his staff, and his supporters, yet when the President called out their hate and threats, they claimed he was endangering their lives!
Now, after several years of incessant hate-speech, vile threats, and discrimination against anti-Marxists, and the Conservative Media, Democrats are looking to provide cover and protection for the radical left-wing pro-left wing Mainstream Media! In fact, the Democrats have introduced a bill that would further embolden and allow the Media to have unbridled power! In fact, the new bill, should it become law would give special protections to their journalistic allies! The Democrats have called it the “Journalist Protection Act,” which would make it a federal crime to intentionally cause bodily injury to a journalist.
The Hill reports:
Dem lawmakers unveil Journalist Protection Act amid Trump attacks on media
Three Democratic lawmakers reintroduced a Journalist Protection Act that intends to designate “certain attacks on those reporting the news” as a federal crime.
The bill was introduced by Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.), Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.).
It was originally introduced by Swalwell in February 2018 when the House was under Republican control. Democrats officially took back the House this January.
“The Journalist Protection Act makes it a federal crime to intentionally cause bodily injury to a journalist affecting interstate or foreign commerce in the course of reporting or in a manner designed to intimidate him or her from newsgathering for a media organization,” reads the Tuesday press release.
“It represents a clear statement that assaults against people engaged in reporting is unacceptable, and helps ensure law enforcement is able to punish those who interfere with newsgathering.”
However, acts against any American that inflicts bodily injury is already a crime, but this would make it a federal offense if that American was a journalist! The problem is, Democrats have already indicated that they think that calling journalists ‘Fake News’, is an act of violence or threat! Therefore, this bill would likely allow for the Mainstream Media to be a targeting device, used to destroy the lives of innocent civilians, simply because they hold differing ideologies. Even more problematic, is the fact that anyone who dares question the Media’s morality, facts, or agenda, would possibly fall victim to federal charges and prosecution, thus serving years in prison, simply for questioning the media, or defending one’s name and reputation! Ultimately, it would help solidify the radical Marxist left’s propaganda wing, as the United States would be one step closer to Authoritarianism!
