US “Free Press” Loves State Censorship
A new court ruling that limits government censorship is panicking the New York Times and their corporate friends
This week a federal court ordered that the government, namely the FBI and other executive bodies, can no longer speak to social media companies to tell them what to censor. Our free press was NOT happy.
According to the New York Times, this will devastatingly limit the Biden administration’s ability to fight disinformation, because after all it is not the job of journalists but of the government to decide what news is real and what’s merely Russian trickery.
So now, the next time you’re tuning in to an episode of Useful Idiots, be careful: the Biden administration is no longer sieving the information we report, so you may want to start double checking what you hear. It’s dangerous times out there, and our free press is, God forbid, free.
Plus, our warmongering leaders are at it again, each week growing more and more explicit that this was has never been about the lives of Ukrainians, but about beating China in the name of hegemony.
The media this week spewed a lot of corporate nonsense; Katie and Aaron are here to throw down on it all. It’s our Thursday bonus episode. Let us know in the comments what corporate media monologues, interviews, or anything else you want to see on the next Thursday Throwdown.
