Senator-elect Katie Britt: ‘No seat’ for JCPA media cartel bill in Omnibus

Alabama Senator-elect Katie Britt joins Breitbart News Washington Bureau Chief Matt Boyle on SiriusXM Patriot Channel Breitbart News Saturdayhailing the successful effort by Republicans to keep the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act (JCPA) out of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and urging fellow Republicans to keep an eye out for any attempts to fit the derided media bailout into an omnibus spending bill .

“When you look at the JCPA… I mean, the last thing we need is to give cartel power to the media to collude with Big Tech,” Senator-elect Britt said.

“We certainly don’t need a bailout of journalism in this nation. We have to let the free market for ideas and information work. It’s just a bad bill, but we have to keep fighting, because we know how Democrats work. We win, but then they try to come push back or sneak something else.

“In light of what we’ve seen with the Twitter files, we’ve seen that you have these discredited media companies that just want to continue colluding with Big Tech, it’s become the third arm of the Democratic Party, and they’re doing this to censor the conservatives.

“We need to keep stepping up, keep standing up and keep speaking out to ensure this great nation continues to thrive. They’ll come back and work to get it into the omnibus package, and we’ll have to say no. We will have to stand firm once again and tell them this has no place anywhere, including an omnibus package.

“This is a win for us, this is a win for conservatives, this is a win for America, but we both know the Democrats aren’t going to build on that and come back. And so I think we’re going to have to continue to be vigilant, I think we’ve got to continue to be loud, I encourage all of your listeners to make sure your voices are heard.
