A liberal commentator named Alex Stamos appeared on CNN recently and called for the outright censorship of conservative influencers. Stamos made the comments live on camera alongside Brian Stelter and another commentator, both of whom did not as much as blink an eye when the pro-censorship comments were made. Stamos also called for the censorship of conservative news outlets like OAN and Newsmax.
There shouldn’t be much surprise from conservative influencers that liberal networks like CNN are calling for censorship of conservatives. As Alex Stamos noted, there are some conservative influencers who get more views on YouTube than daytime CNN. Nevermind the fact that some liberal influencers, like The Young Turks, may get more views than the aforementioned conservative influencer. That part is OK to a place like CNN because their enemy is conservatives, not liberals.
CNN, and other mainstream media networks, have a serious issue with cord-cutters and alternative media sources behaving as a form of competition. Why watch the obviously-liberal CNN who give out halfway true information when a person can simply turn their television off or watch a more relatable YouTuber? This conundrum has been an issue with mainstream media news for years now. But the Capitol riot has given these failing and/or suffering news networks like CNN the gumption to speak the “quiet part” out loud and on television.
