FOX News has been a thorn in the side of the Democratic Party since its launch in 1996. Before FOX News existed, liberals had a 100% stranglehold on news media and the narrative which would be advanced on any given story.
Now, we learn that Democrats in the Federal Election Commission recently held a secret vote to punish the news network.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Fox targeted by FEC Dems in first-ever vote to punish debate sponsorship
Finally making good on long-harbored anger at conservative media, Democrats on the Federal Election Commission voted in secret to punish Fox News’ sponsorship of a Republican presidential debate, using an obscure law to charge the network with helping those on stage.
It is the first time in history that members of the FEC voted to punish a media outlet’s debate sponsorship, and it follows several years of Democratic threats against conservative media and websites like the Drudge Report.
The punishment, however, was blocked by all three Republicans on the commission, resulting in a 3-3 tie vote and no action.
A Republican FEC commissioner leading that fight, Lee E. Goodman, revealed the vote to Secrets Wednesday and said the official report of the May 26 executive vote will be released Thursday.
Obama tried to punish FOX News shortly after taking office in 2009 but backed off after public outcry which might explain why Democrats did this in secret.
They just can’t stand the fact that there’s one news network which doesn’t take orders from them.
