The war on conservatives has accelerated with Joe Biden in the White House.
Democrats and their friends in the press feel emboldened to take down all their political opponents.
Now CNN came up with an insane excuse for censoring Fox News.
It’s commonplace for rival news networks to sling arrows back and forth, but it’s an entirely different ballgame calling for opponents to be taken off the air.
But that’s exactly what CNN is doing – and they feel emboldened to do so considering how effectively Donald Trump was removed from every major social media platform.
And while Media Matters and other left-wing smear machines have targeted Fox News’s advertisers for years, now CNN wants Fox News off the air.
CNN host Brian Stelter – the so-called “media watchdog” of the network –has put a creative new sheen on the left’s calls for censorship.
Stelter claims he doesn’t want Fox News off the air, he just wants their reach limited.

The Democrats are openly flirting with fascism.
Their hatred of Donald Trump makes them believe mass censorship is acceptable, even moral.
But the left’s censorship efforts are only going to backfire.
They were so blatant in their takedown of Trump and Twitter competitor, Parler, that the average person saw just how nightmarish the Democrat Media Complex actually is.
Even left-wing critics of Trump, including German chancellor Angela Merkel, recoiled at the actions taken by the big tech oligarchs.
But even if the left is successful in torpedoing Fox News, there are multiple alternative outlets for people to get information.
And now with Trump out of office and banned from social media, the mainstream media realizes they have no sacrificial lamb to inflate their ratings.
So they’re scrambling to find a narrative that will attract an audience. In the meantime, the rhetoric gets more and more bombastic.
