CNN segment discusses removing conservative media and forcing everyone into the ‘same conceptual reality’

A segment on Reliable Sources Sunday featured host Brian Stelter and former Facebook executive Alex Stamos discussing “turn[ing] down the capability” of conservative media outlets by preventing AT&T, Comcast, and Verizon from “bringing them into tens of millions of homes.”

The two lamented the influence of conservative outlets and personalities, especially since some “have a larger audience than daytime CNN.”

The solution? According to these two, take outlets off television and social media platforms but still allow people to seek the content “if they really want to.”

Considering, however, that Parler was taken off Amazon Web Services and is inaccessible for the foreseeable future, it is unclear how conservatives can still find right-leaning news if all outlets and personalities are purged from modern communication.

“The way we’ve treated press freedoms in the past is being abused by these actors,” Stamos declared. “We have given a lot of leeway—both in the traditional media and on social media—for people to have a very broad range of political views.”

Stamos is certainly considerate to allow people who disagree with him “leeway,” but of course, this will have to change so that people can be “brought back” into the “mainstream of fact-based reporting.”

This strange, Orwellian goal sounds strikingly like propaganda. It’s also coming from the channel that claimed Nick Sandmann verbally attacked a Native American man and touted the Russian-collusion narrative long after it was proven false.

Stelter and Stamos discuss the “huge challenge” of “bringing” Americans back into a utopia where everyone is fed the same information.

“It becomes a huge challenge of how do you bring those people back into the mainstream of fact-based reporting and try to get us all back into the same conceptual reality,” Stamos proposed.

Stamos, former Chief Security Officer at Facebook, went on to say “violent extremists” need to be silenced.

He likens this cleanse to clearing ISIS accounts of the platform—a task he undertook during his tenure at the tech company.

These extremists, Stamos claims, are people like US reps who voted to challenge the electoral certification on Jan. 6 and others across America who believe in things outside of CNN talking points.

“Turn down the capability of these conservative influencers to reach these huge audiences,” Stamos said. “These companies have freedom of speech but I’m not sure we need Verizon, AT&T, Comcast to be bringing them into tens of millions of homes.”

The goal has been said out loud: remove and totally silence conservative media voices and outlets and force channels like CNN on the populous until everyone believes the same thing. Got it.

Biden frees Venezuelan President Maduro’s drug dealing relatives in prisoner swap

Joe Biden

President Biden freed two of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s relatives Saturday in exchange for seven jailed Americans. The two nephews of Maduro’s wife Cilia Flores, had been convicted in the United States for drug dealing and sentenced to 18 years in prison, according to the BBC.

According to the report, the swap was in exchange for five American oil executives. Those Americans were “exchanged for two of Mr Maduro’s wife’s nephews, who were serving 18-year sentences in the US on drug charges,” the officials told the BBC. Maduro’s nephews were convicted under the Trump administration and the Venezuelan government claims that they were “unjustly” jailed in the United States.

In a statement from the White House Saturday, Biden said the American’s were  “wrongfully detained.”  He said the American’s  would soon be reunited with their relatives, according to reports.

“Today, we celebrate that seven families will be whole once more. To all the families who are still suffering and separated from their loved ones who are wrongfully detained – know that we remain dedicated to securing their release,” the Biden statement added.

Meanwhile, 13 Republican members of Congress sent a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, requesting more information on “the intelligence report” that alleges Maduro is emptying his prisons and allowing them to head to the United States in the caravans that crossing the porous border.

The letter states that the report warns Border Patrol agents to be on the look-out for “violent criminals from Venezuela among the migrant caravans heading towards the U.S.-Mexico border.”

“It has been widely reported that the Venezuelan regime, under the control of Nicolás Maduro Moros, is deliberately releasing violent prisoners early, including inmates convicted of ‘murder, rape, and extortion,’ and pushing them to join caravans heading to the United States,” the letter states.
