Two House Democrats have sent a letter pushing to a dozen broadcasters calling for the de-platforming of Newsmax, Fox News, and OAN.
“Are you planning to continue carrying Fox News, OANN, and Newsmax on your platform both now and beyond the renewal date?” California Reps. Anna G. Eshoo and Jerry McNerney ask in the letter sent to AT&T, Verizon, Roku, Amazon, Apple, Comcast, Charter, Dish, Cox, Altice, Alphabet, and Hulu.
“If so, why?” they asked.
Here is the first page of the letter.
FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr tweeted “What time does the Democrats’ book burning party start?” and responded.
