Rep. Ken Buck Admits JCPA Flawed, Scrambles to Add Amendment to Save Big Media Bailout Bill

Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) is scrambling to save a bill that would allow big media companies like the New York Times and CNN to form a cartel to pressure tech companies for special treatment, after criticism of the bill from President Trump’s tech censorship experts, one of the two Republican FCC commissioners, House GOP leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy, Rep. Jim Jordan, and staffers to fellow members of the House Freedom Caucus.
