Federalist, Texas Sue Biden’s State Department On Efforts To Blacklist Conservatives

  • The Federalist editor-in-chief and FOX News contributor Mollie Hemingway joined “The Ingraham Angle” to speak about the lawsuit her news site and others filed against the State Department, alleging the Biden administration violated its First Amendment rights.
  • In the suit filed Wednesday in the U.S. District Court in Texas, the State Department is accused of “funding and promotion of censorship technologies and private censorship enterprises that blacklist” conservative news sites The Federalist and The Daily Wire, which negatively impacts the platforms’ “ability to circulate and distribute their publications to both current and potential audiences.”
  • The lawsuit claims that the State Department technologies are “intentionally destroying” the conservative sites’ ability to obtain advertisers.
  • “Defendants have been granted no statutory authority to fund or promote censorship technology or censorship enterprises that target the American press, tarring disfavored domestic news organizations as purveyors of ‘disinformation,’” the lawsuit states.
