Republican Representative and member of the House Judiciary Committee, Jim Jordan, hammered Nancy Pelosi’s Senate Democrats’ for their efforts to revive the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act, which did not pass his committee just last year.
Matthew Boyle of Breitbart News interviewed Jordan about the Democrats’ attempts to revive the media cartel act.
“One of the things that jumped out at me this week was the Senate Judiciary Committee subcommittee on antitrust announced that they’re going to be having this hearing on this bill called the journalism competition and preservation act,” said Boyle.
“You led the fight against this in the House, and it didn’t pass the house, didn’t even make it through it h committee last year. They’re trying to revive it… this bill would create an antitrust exemption, a lot like Major League Baseball has an antitrust exemption, so that big media companies can collectively bargain with big tech companies,” Boyle continued.
“This is not about competition and preserving competition,” Jordan said. “This is about creating a cartel, this is about creating an OPEC in the newspaper business.”
“Do you think letting the New York Times and the Washington Post collude is going to actually help conservatives, going to actually help the first amendment, help free speech, stop the censorship?” Jordan sarcastically asked.
“Go back to the month before the 2020 presidential election and look how big media colluded with big tech to keep the number one story, what should have been the number one story from the American people, namely the story about Hunter Biden and what he was up to with foreign countries and how it relates to President Biden and the Big Man and everyone else,”Jordan added.
“Boyle said that Big Media companies would use the legislation to cut conservatives out of deals with the tech giants,” Breitbart News reported.
