The Democrats are doing all they can to kill off the freedom of speech. Fox News is just a shadow of its former self, but if the Democrats succeed in gaining “oversight” over its editorial decisions, that would be the coup de grace.

The Democrats want a society in which only their point of view can be heard, and only their editorial line can be followed.

In other words, they want the death of a free society.
