The New York Times hailed a plan from New Jersey's Democrat controlled legislature to spend millions of taxpayer dollars on state funded propaganda.
As the New York Times themselves would love nothing more than for the state to step in to secure their financial future, they reported on the plan glowingly.
From New York Times:
The state's lawmakers have embarked on a novel experiment to address a local news crisis: putting up millions of dollars in the state's most recent budget to pay for community journalism. While public television and radio stations have long received government funds, new media experts like Kelly McBride of the Poynter Institute say they have not heard of any other efforts on this scale, with a state helping to pay for reporting projects among a range of news media, including for-profit outlets.It's about forcing taxpayers to pay for their fake news propaganda.
The crisis in the news media has been acutely felt in New Jersey, where the press corps covering the state government in Trenton has withered and larger newspapers in the region have reduced their staffs and their coverage.Keep in mind Google has pretty much banned all alternative news sites from their search results on both Google and YouTube, Facebook is banning tons of alternative news sites and just banned Infowars altogether, and Twitter is banning tons of right-wing accounts and artificially suppressing conservative's reach -- yet that's not enough for these fake news propagandists to compete.
We need to fight this censorship with everything we've got. We need to call out this censorship and demand Republicans pass a law or move to regulate these companies to force them to respect free speech.
This is election interference on a scale never before seen!
