Crazy Lib Rep McGovern: Let’s Take Away All Federal Funding For FOX News Too (Video)
Apparently, the far left thinks FOX News is being funded by taxpayers.
In another weird display on the House floor today Rep. Jim McGovern urged his colleagues to ban advertising on FOX News.
Really, Jim… Really?
Congressman Jim McGovern(MA-3) says on the floor that defunding NPR because the content isn’t agreeable is a ‘lousy’ way to make decisions. But if the GOP wants to go down that road, “we should be fair and balanced in the way we do it,” and take away federal advertising dollars from FoxNews.
McGovern’s efforts were shot down in a straight party line vote.
FOX News reported:
A congressman smarting over legislation to defund National Public Radio tried to take out his frustration with a ban on federal dollars paying for advertising on Fox News, but the effort was rejected in a party-line committee vote.
Rep. Jim McGovern, D-Mass., offered an amendment Wednesday night that would have prohibited funds from any federal agency from being used to advertise on the Fox News Channel.
“If my friends on the other side of the aisle want to strip funding from NPR because they believe — wrongly, in my view — that NPR is biased, then we should be given the same opportunity,” McGovern told the House Rules Committee…
…McGovern did not cite any studies or statistics on how much federal advertising money is spent on Fox News. He did not return requests for comment submitted by FoxNews.com.
