Restore Press Freedom!
The destruction of press freedoms in this country have gone too far, and have created polarity and a hostile environment for many people on both sides of the aisle. We the people demand 1) A restoration of the Fairness Doctrine, 2) the repeal of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 and 3) the repeal of the Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012, which ended the ban on propaganda.
Why is this important?
Today the entire mainstream media is owned by only FIVE corporations, all of which are run by people who are invested in weapons and war. The result is a media that always starts with a pro-interventionist position and is staffed by former intelligence officials and generals that protect the government narrative instead of the truth. Additionally, it is extremely rare for mainstream media outlets to have on opposing viewpoints, especially from the left, to have debates and discussions. We need a return to fairness, truth and civil debate.
