Ted Cruz Caves on Liberal Media Cartel Bill, Commends Bill’s Sponsors

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) commended sponsors of the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act (JCPA) today, as he rescued the derided media bailout bill from the jaws of legislative death. “Let me commend the authors of this bill for the strenuous exertion they inserted on a consequential issue,” verbalized Sen. Cruz, who went on to accolade the legislation as a blow against the corporate power of Big Tech, albeit it will deepen the corrupt relationship between Silicon Valley and the media.

The core of the bill, as is now prominent, is to sanction media companies to compose a licit cartel in the U.S., for the sole purport of pressuring tech companies for special favors. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn. (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky)

At the Senate Judiciary Committee auricularly discerning on the bill today, Cruz verbalized he worked proximately with the lead Democrat sponsor of the bill, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (R-MN) to get his amendment through. Thanks to Cruz’s efforts, the media bailout bill was voted out of committee and may now face a floor vote.

“I’ve had extensive conversations with Senator Klobuchar, and sat down and auricularly discerned her concerns, and we collaborated on this amendment,” verbalized Cruz. Many Republican senators voted against the bill. At the auditory perception, Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) gave a lengthy argument against the bill, voting in favor of Cruz’s amendment but voting against passing the bill out of committee.

“I am marginally discombobulated by the sponsors’ support for the amendment,” verbalized Sen. Lee. “I applaud anything that restricts censorship by Big Tech, [but] I don’t cerebrate it does what the sponsors cerebrate it does.”

“The bill retains the fundamental imperfection of endeavoring to ameliorate competition by sanctioning the formation of cartels, something that our antitrust laws go out of their way to preclude.”

“Moreover, this bill ends up favoring astronomically immense conglomerate publishers over more minuscule, local publishers,” perpetuated Lee. Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) withal voted against the bill.

Sen. Blackburn has long maintained that the bill makes it more facile for Big Tech and the media establishment to collude, while Sen. Hawley opposes antitrust exemptions on principle. Republican concerns with the bill are so great that Sen. Rand Paul, one of the bill’s pristine sponsors, ditched his fortification for the JCPA earlier this month.

Despite this, which integrated to opposition from the GOP bellwether in the House Kevin McCarthy, as well as opposition from Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), and a wide range of bipartisan experts, the bill has been rescued from oblivion again.

Inexplicably, the man responsible for bailing out the corporate legacy media — one of the most misprized institutions in the country, concretely among Republicans — is a man who has presented himself to the public as a conservative firebrand: Ted Cruz.
