If Gigi Sohn is confirmed to the FCC, it might stand for Federal Censorship Commission instead of Federal Communications Commission. Biden’s FCC commissioner nominee Gigi Sohn has an extensive history of support for anti-conservative censorship and ties to prominent leftists, including radical billionaire George Soros.
Sohn has openly mocked the idea that there is biased censorship of conservatives online. “For years, @Twitter & @Facebook tried to appease @realDonaldTrump & other right-wing extremists on phony claims of conservative bias. It didn't work,” Sohn tweeted from her unverified account in May 2020. She also slammed Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) for highlighting online bias. “No shock - @Jim_Jordan rants and raves about so-called anti-conservative bias on online platforms, which we all know is a bunch of BS,” Sohn tweeted in July 2020.
Media Research Center President Brent Bozell tweeted, “Biden’s pick for the FCC is an enemy of free speech. Gigi Sohn is another far-left Biden nominee like Comrade Omarova. Her views are a threat to free speech online and on TV. Senators should oppose Sohn's ridiculous nomination.”
Sohn has deep ties to leftist billionaire George Soros. Public Knowledge, of which Sohn was formerly President, received at least $1,148,984 from Soros’ Open Society Foundations between 2016 and 2020. Open Society Foundations also named Sohn a 2017 “Leadership in Government” fellow. “On Jan 16, I start a Leadership in Government Fellowship @OpenSociety Foundations. I'll be speaking, writing, etc. Follow me at @gigibsohn,” Sohn celebrated on Twitter in December 2016.
