In First Amendment news, Michigan GQP is working really hard to remove freedom of the press, and maybe free speech:
Lansing — A Michigan lawmaker who’s been at the center of efforts to question the 2020 election introduced a bill Tuesday that would require “fact checkers” to register with the state.
I cannot see any problem with that, nosireebob!
The “Fact Checker Registration Act” defines a fact checker as someone who publishes in print or online in Michigan, is paid by a fact-checking organization and is a member of the International Fact Check Network [International Fact-Checking Network — TG]…
The bill requires qualifying fact checkers to file proof of a $1 million fidelity bond with the Secretary of State’s office, which will be tasked with developing the “form and manner of registration and filing.”
For $1M Ameros, free speech! Only Republicans could come up with an idea this stupid.
