Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Theblaze.com: “Biden FCC nominee previously described Fox News as 'state-sponsored propaganda'”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Gigi Sohn, who has been nominated by President Joe Biden to serve as a commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), previously referred to Fox News as "state-sponsored propaganda" and said that the outlet has had a detrimental impact on American democracy.

"For all my concerns about #Facebook, I believe that Fox News has had the most negative impact on our democracy. It's state-sponsored propaganda, with few if any opposing viewpoints. Where's the hearing about that?" she tweeted in October 2020.

When GOP Sen. Roy Blunt of Missouri asked Sohn whether she is biased against Fox News, Sohn emphasized that past comments she made about the outlet came in the context of hearings as well as media reports.

Sohn said that her "opinions as a public interest advocate will have no bearing on how I behave as a policymaker," in the event that she is confirmed as commissioner of the FCC.
