Rep. Jim McGovern offers amendment to ban federal ad spending on Fox News

Published

on

Rep. Jim McGovern (D-MA) offered an amendment Wednesday night that would ban the federal government from spending any money to advertise on Fox News.

“Over the past several years, it has become clear that the Fox News channel is wildly biased,” he said. “They continue to employ a talk show host who called President Obama a racist. They continue to employ several prospective Republican Presidential candidates as ‘analysts,’ giving them hours and hours of free air time.

“My amendment would prohibit federal funds – taxpayer dollars – from being used for advertising on the partisan, political platform of Fox News.”

Published

A new report from the Wall Street Journal confirms that President Donald Trump over the summer "repeatedly pressed" Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden.
