FCC Commissioner Rejects Calls To Block Sale Of Twitter To Elon Musk, Slams ‘Hard Left’ For Opposing Free Speech

FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr shot down calls from left-wing activists for the government agency to block African-American tech philanthropist Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter, and criticized the “hard left” for believing “the free exchange of ideas is incompatible with the outcomes that they want to see at the ballot box.”

“Yesterday, the Open Markets Institute issued a release that called for the FCC, FTC, and DOJ to block Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter,” the FCC said in a statement released on Wednesday.

“They argue that the transaction poses a “direct threat to American democracy and free speech,” the statement continued. “And their release cites to the Telegraph Act of 1860, among other statutory authorities, in the context of arguing that these federal agencies have authority to block the deal.”

“The FCC has no authority to block Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter, and to suggest otherwise is absurd,” Carr stated. “I would welcome the full FCC making it clear that we will not entertain these types of frivolous arguments.”
