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.

BREAKING: Trump ordered to pay over $350M, barred from operating his business in NY in civil fraud case ruling

Published

Former President Donald Trump and his business empire faced a significant setback as a New York judge ruled against them in a civil fraud case brought by New York Attorney General Letitia James. The 92-page ruling, handed down by Judge Arthur Engoron, barred Trump from operating his business in New York for three years and imposed over $350 million in damages.

The case, which unfolded over months of trial proceedings, stemmed from allegations that Trump inflated his assets and engaged in fraudulent practices. Engoron’s ruling cited a litany of charges, including persistent fraud, falsifying records, issuing false financial statements, and conspiracy to commit fraud.

Moreover, the judge imposed restrictions on key figures within the Trump Organization, including Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, barring them from serving in certain corporate roles in New York for a specified period.

Engoron’s scathing assessment of Trump’s testimony during the trial further undermined the former president’s credibility. The judge criticized Trump for evasive responses and irrelevant digressions, highlighting the detrimental effect on his credibility.

In response to the ruling, Trump’s attorney, Christopher Kise, lambasted the court’s decision, alleging political bias and a disregard for established legal principles. Kise argued that the evidence presented during the trial failed to support the allegations of fraud and emphasized Trump’s substantial net worth.

Kise’s assertions were echoed by Alina Habba, another attorney representing Trump, who denounced the verdict as a “manifest injustice” resulting from a politically motivated witch hunt.

Throughout the proceedings, Trump consistently dismissed the trial as politically motivated, accusing both Engoron and James of partisan bias. His legal team also criticized the absence of a jury in the trial, questioning the fairness of the proceedings.

Attorney General Letitia James, who spearheaded the lawsuit against Trump and his organization, portrayed the ruling as a victory for accountability and transparency in business practices. The lawsuit alleged fraudulent conduct and sought substantial financial penalties, a portion of which would contribute to the state treasury.

The fallout from the case extends beyond Trump and his business interests, with implications for the broader business community and the rule of law. The contentious nature of the trial and its outcome underscored deep divisions and raised questions about the integrity of the legal system.

Trump vows to appeal the decision.
