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.

Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban Buys Entire Texas Town

‘No Plans Yet’, Cuban Says About His Purchase of Abandoned Texas Town of Mustang

Forget becoming Mayor of a town, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is now the owner of a town.  Cuban reportedly purchased the entire town of Mustang, Texas. The town is virtually abandoned with no current residents, “and it’s been several years since the last two businesses, Wispers Cabaret strip club and Lion’s Den adult bookstore, operated” reports NBC News.

In a brief email explaining the purchase to NBC News on Friday, Cuban wrote “did it to help out a friend. No plans yet!” The town of Mustang is roughly 65 miles south of American Airlines Center, the home of the Dallas Mavericks.

According to Mike Turner, president of Dallas real estate firm J. Elmer Turner, the town had been for sale on the market about four years, listed after the principal owner Marty Price became ill and decided to sell.

Price was an attorney who died this past August; a devoted basketball fan with Mavericks floor seats. “Mark Cuban stepped up, and it was a natural for him to buy it” Turner told NBC News. “With his resources and imagination, I’m sure there are endless possibilities.”

Turner did not reveal the final sales price but admitted it closed last month for less than the $4 million asking price. Jerry Newsom, chief of the volunteer fire department in the neighboring town of Angus, told NBC Dallas-Fort Worth “we’re excited to have him as our neighbor here, and we’re excited for the growth and the potential it has.”
