Drudge, Facebook, NYT readers could face libel suits for sharing ‘fake news.’ Here we go with another attempt by the Democrats to stifle the 1st Amendment. As we all know “fake news” is anything they happen to disagree with.

In a broad proposal that adds threatening libel suits to regulatory plans already pushed by Democrats on the Federal Election Commission, ex-chair Ann Ravel believes that there is support for expanded regulation in the wake of reports foreign governments spent $100,000 on 2016 political ads on Facebook.

She would include “fake news,” not just paid ads, to be regulated, though it’s never defined other than the Democrat’s description of “disinformation.” And anybody who shares or retweets it could face a libel suit.

The left wing media outlets are championing another attack on our rights again.

The left turds are always going on about 1st Ammendment rights. Now when the stories go against said dip shits, they start looking for ways to shut down those who don’t print or report what they deem newsworthy. Typical communist ass holes

Killing the 1st Amendment is what this is about…

Any such legislation wouldn’t last five seconds against a Supreme Court First Amendment challenge.

That’s the key. They’re just trying to throw a scare into us.

No, they want to make America like the college campus, a place where they strong arm any ideas they do not want to hear/see out of the arena of ideas.
