Lawmakers send letters to cable providers about FOX News, OANN and Newsmax

#LETTERSTOCABLEPROVIDERS #RIGHTWINGMEDIA Rep. Jerry McNerny and Rep. Anna Eshoo recently sent letters to several cable providers like Roku, Hulu, Comcast, Verizon, Amazon and Apple regarding what they call misinformation on right wing media outlets like FOX News, OANN, and Newsmax. The letter reads, “Nearly half of Americans get their news primarily from TV. However, not all TV news sources are the same. Some purported news outlets have long been misinformation rumor mills and conspiracy theory hotbeds that produce content that leads to real harm. Misinformation on TV has led to our current polluted information environment that radicalizes individuals to commit seditious acts and rejects public health best practices, among other issues in our public discourse…Experts have noted that the right-wing media ecosystem is “much more susceptible…to disinformation, lies, and half-truths.'”
