If You Can't Beat Them, Silence Them?

Gigi Sohn is President Joe Biden's nominee for commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission. If she is confirmed, conservative media will have plenty to worry about.

If her previous comments are to be believed, Sohn would prefer that conservative broadcasters such as Fox News be kicked off the air entirely.

Here's more from The Federalist:

"[Sohn's] chances of gaining Republican support are once again slim considering her history of criticizing and painting TV networks she disagrees with as threats to our democracy that need to be punished.

In one 2019 tweet, Sohn hinted that Fox News should be scrutinized because they "have played their own role in destroying democracy."

"I agree that scrutiny of big tech is essential, as is scrutiny of big telecom, cable and media. And trust me, the latter have played their own role in destroying democracy & electing autocrats. Like, say, Fox News?" she tweeted.

One year later, after social media companies censored posts about Covid-19 and circulation of the Hunter Biden laptop story, Sohn once again asked: "So do you still want me to believe that social media is more dangerous to our democracy than Fox News?"


Our public officials should be concerned with protecting free speech, not using their power to silence viewpoints with which they disagree. If Sohn and the Biden administration don't understand this fundamental reality, perhaps they shouldn't be serving as public officials.
