    AOC says Congress may form commission to ‘rein in’ media after Capitol riot
    By Ebony Bowden

    WASHINGTON — Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez revealed that Congress is looking into creating an investigative commission to “rein in” the media in the wake of the US Capitol siege.

    During a lengthy Instagram Live on Tuesday evening where she revealed that she feared for her life during the siege, the “Squad” member accused the mainstream media of “spewing disinformation” ahead of the deadly riot in which five people died.

    “There’s absolutely a commission that’s being discussed but it seems to be more investigating in style rather than truth and reconciliation,” she said.

    “I do think that several members of Congress in some of my discussions have brought up media literacy because that is part of what happened here,” Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) went on.

    “We’re going to have to figure out how we rein in our media environment so you can’t just spew disinformation and misinformation,” she said.

    “It’s one thing to have differentiating opinions, but it’s another thing entirely to just say things that are false, so that’s something that we’re looking into.”

    I don't see how this is a good thing.
    Disinformation is bad yes of course, but you also get that from mainstream news and she is not referring to policing them I am sure.
    And even if she does, it's just not how it going to end up.

    CNN, Fox and MSNBC and CNBC will all be immune to any of this.

    NOT a good idea!

    Ehhhh she's still dodging a major issue when it comes to the media. All of them were just as culpable in allowing his rhetoric and message to spread as they chose long term profits over doing the right thing. That's the bigger issue as no one wanted to give up the bread that came from allow of his content being elsewhere and chose to overlook his actions and message.

    You can use the excuse that you brought up his tweets and racist comments as wanting to inform viewers of what was going on in his presidency but all it did was further spread his message to people may not even had Twitter or knew the things that he was saying in the first place. They all threw fuel to the fire even if they didn't intend to.

    That's not going to work because they will say the government is trying to take away our first amendment right.

    It literally says this
    "the “Squad” member accused the mainstream media of “spewing disinformation” ahead of the deadly riot in which five people died."

    Its very simple. Any group that wants to list itself as a news organization is required to list its sources.

    News is meant to be a form of education. Imagine going to school and your teacher is telling you that actually there weren't slaves and black people were paid well for their labor. If you ask the teacher says "people said that" and when you ask who they say "don't worry about it" would you trust that teacher?

    If the statements and claims being made are not verifiable there should be consequences. Likewise with advertising. You can't come out with an ad saying "this product will cure your cancer" without providing ANY verifiable proof.

    Cacs got whipped up into a frenzy talmbout some damn voter fraud with zero reliable sources to prove it.

    Can't they already sue for libel and defamation?

    Fox news seems to get hit with those type of suits all the time

    I get what's she's saying, but she is avoiding to address the bigger issue at hand with what transpired last week. Everybody is trying to place blame and dodge culpability in admitting that they helped in some way allow what happened last week to transpire even if they didn't intentionally try.
