As Twitchy reported earlier, the New York Times has a new piece suggesting that former Disinformation Governance Board chair Nina Jankowicz was “targeted online by false or misleading info” but failed to mention any of the disinformation she spread on Twitter, such as calling the Hunter Biden story “a fairy tale about a laptop repair shop.” The Times is also concerned about the disinformation being spread by conservative talk radio: “On Conservative Radio, Misleading Message Is Clear: Democrats Cheat.”
“Misinfo experts warn that talk radio channels, many of which air political commentary 24 hours a day, receive far too little scrutiny … also uniquely difficult to analyze and … moderate, because the on-air musings from hosts usually disappear…”https://t.co/u8GTmMqS2k

We’re not sure exactly what they mean by being uniquely difficult to “moderate.” In any case, the Times seems worried that talk radio is spreading the belief that the results of the midterm elections can’t be trusted — which is actually the belief being spread by liberals, who believe right-wing state legislatures are going to mess with certification via their secretaries of state.

Misinfo expert is about as real of a title as phrenologist

TRANSLATION: The left can’t compete on the talk radio format, so instead they want to shut it down.

Have “misinfo experts” been correct about anything in the last couple years? We just need to wait a few months for the misinformation to be the truth.

So would that include the 17 Spanish stations just purchased in Florida?

As Twitchy reported, Florida Rep. Darren Soto recently announced a “major” victory against right-wing Hispanic radio disinformation with the liberal Latino Media Network purchasing 18 Spanish-speaking radio stations in Florida.

Translation – Talk radio stations expose the misinformation, lying and cheating perpetrated by the left.

NY Times really wanting to maintain their title of king of disinfo by eliminating the competition.

As they say, the ones calling for censorship are almost always the bad guys. Also, whenever a media outlet consults “experts,” they’re always left-wing activists.
