>“A media watchdog found over 250 cases of COVID-19 misinformation on Fox News in just one five-day period, and economists demonstrated that Fox News had a demonstrable impact on non-compliance with public health guidelines,” the lawmakers wrote. Is Fox just going to whip out their ‘We’re for entertainment purposes only’ and go on their merry-lying way again?

Yes because the next thing we need is ethical big cable deciding what is truth /s.

Because all the news outlets do? None of these main stream news sources are real news anymore they’re all opinion pieces. And I don’t know about you, but I sure as shit don’t want the Comcasts of the world telling me what’s real and what’s fake.

This is dangerous, letting companies decide which news to air. I’m sorry but at some point we have to blame the viewers and not the cable companies. Their job is to make money, it’s the viewers job to weed out news that spreads false information.
