AOC: Congress discussing probe to 'rein in' media after Capitol riot

WASHINGTON — Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez revealed that Congress is looking into creating an investigative commission to “rein in” the media in the wake of the US Capitol siege.

During a lengthy Instagram Live on Tuesday evening where she revealed that she feared for her life during the siege, the “Squad” member accused the mainstream media of “spewing disinformation” ahead of the deadly riot in which five people died.

“There’s absolutely a commission that’s being discussed but it seems to be more investigating in style rather than truth and reconciliation,” she said.

“I do think that several members of Congress in some of my discussions have brought up media literacy because that is part of what happened here,” Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) went on.

“We’re going to have to figure out how we rein in our media environment so you can’t just spew disinformation and misinformation,” she said.

“It’s one thing to have differentiating opinions, but it’s another thing entirely to just say things that are false, so that’s something that we’re looking into.”

"the deadly riot in which five people died" One murder by a cop, three deaths by ill-health, and one somewhat mysterious death of a cop due to a head injury - so presumably murder too.

Some fascist insurrection, that! Some storming of the Bastille ! Have people no idea how deadly a revolutionary mob can be compared to this pantomime mob? Let's hope you don't find out.
