President Biden’s “Minister of Truth” Nina Jankowicz wants to re-impose the Fairness Doctrine, a tool used by Democrats to stifle conservative speech for decades.
As seen in this video, Jankowicz said:
“I’m going to jump in on the Fairness Doctrine. I personally would welcome its return to our country.“
Jankowicz stated this position in congressional testimony to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on Oct. 15, 2020.
Jankowicz then testified that NPR should get more government money because, “local NPR and PBS stations are some of the only local journalism that is trustworthy that exists.”
The Fairness Doctrine had been used by Democrat presidents to mute and shut down conservative broadcasters.
As noted by the New York Times in 1975, Democrats weaponized the Fairness Doctrine and engaged in “organized, covert campaigns to harass unsympathetic radio commentators.”
“the Kennedy and Johnson Administrations, with financial backing from the Democratic National Committee, had used the fairness doctrine to subdue rightwing radio commentators who were critical of Administration goals.
The clandestine campaigns, which reportedly began in 1963, were also designed to inhibit stations from carrying commentary supporting Senator Barry Goldwater, Republican of Arizona, at the time he was a prospective Presidential candidate.”
As a result, many conservative stations shut down or simply stopped discussing current events altogether.
And now Biden’s Minister of Truth wants that power back.
