Republicans Slam Biden FCC Pick for Anti-Conservative Views

Republicans on Wednesday slammed President Joe Biden’s latest nominee to the Federal Communications Commission for her history of attacking right-wing speech.

Members of the Senate Commerce Committee tore into Gigi Sohn for what Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) called “a history of antipathy toward conservative views.” Sohn has called for the shuttering of right-wing networks repeatedly throughout her career and advocated for increased federal oversight of right-wing broadcasters. Sen. Dan Sullivan (R., Alaska) said these views “completely disqualify” Sohn from public office.
