First Amendment, Now an Endangered Species Too!


First Amendment, Now an Endangered Species Too!

Al Ritter 

For the last decade Conservatives have known that their Second Amendment Rights have been under attack by the left under the guise of “state’s rights.” It has always been confusing to this writer how “state’s rights” ever came into play in the first place. It’s been common knowledge that whatever isn’t mentioned and addressed in the Constitution or in its Amendments becomes the responsibility of the states. Yet the second amendment is clearly mentioned and addressed …. 

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” 

But here we are allowing states to adopt their own laws and bans on particular guns. 

As I mentioned in previous articles there is now an attack on the First Amendment triggered by the Jan 6th protest at the Capitol Building. New Channels have long since lost their unbiased base and present a definite slanted view from both sides of the spectrum. The big 3 ABC, NBC, CBS were the first ones to take a leftist stance in the late 90’s. Spin offs in the Cable Networks expanded that view. MSNBC, CNN, CNBC came online in the 2000’s and as a result Fox News came on the air in 2001 and quickly surpassed CNN as the top cable news outlet. Recently OANN, NEWSMAX have come online to support the Conservative view. Listeners were tired of News channels reporting the leftist view as the only one and were desperately search for other points of view. People on both sides understood that they could find like-minded reporting by picking their favorite “News” channel. 

Well it seems that now two House Democrats want to change that too. Anna Eschoo and Jerry McNerney (both from California) have sent a letter to AT&T, Hulu, Amazon, Comcast, Roku, Google, and Apple, asking why they carried the three purported “news outlets” (Fox, OANN, and Newsmax) as being the spreaders of misinformation. 

The same could be said about MSNBC, CNN, and CNBC, but the right has never seen fit to want an outright ban on them. 

I suppose that times are changing, but I found it humorous that the FCC reacted quickly and forcefully by issuing this statement immediately.
