Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called for a commission on the media to ensure disinformation and misinformation does not spread widely. These calls were made on an Instagram livestream she hosted on her Instagram account. Joe Concha From Fox News gave his hot take, more from The Daily Caller:
Fox News contributor Joe Concha broke down Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Tuesday comments about wanting to “rein in our media environment” and expressed shock at how much of media ignored the statements.
Ocasio-Cortez said that Congress is discussing “a commission” and declared that they will “have to figure out how we rein in our media environment” to prevent “disinformation and misinformation” during an Instagram stream Tuesday.
Fox News’ Steve Doocy wondered “who would decide what media gets reined in” Thursday morning and Concha said that the likely options are various Democrats who “have some challenges when it comes to telling the truth.” (RELATED: ‘We Have A List’: Pundits And Democrats Plan To Hold Trump Supporters Accountable)
Tucker Carlson also gave his take on these calls for policing the media:
The idea alone is concerning for many as this is reminiscent of communist style control over the spread of all information. These comments come off of the back of major censorship from Big Tech on all information outside official channels related to the storming of the capitol.
