In the wake of, well, decades of generating fake outrage against civilized people so Our Glorious Elites could consolidate their own unearned power, but more recently in the wake of bad PR about Tucker Carlson's racist and sexist behavior, Free Press helps you tell corporations to stop advertising on the Fox News Channel. Again, Mr. Carlson's jokes/"jokes" about sex with underage girls is exactly the kind of thing we expect boys to stop doing once they become grown men, but Fox has deserved shame and shunning since the beginning, and in the absence of a law forcing cable providing corporations to offer cable channels to us a la carte, prompting their advertisers to drop Fox is the next best thing. Fox's natterers will claim they're being "oppressed," which the powerful always do whenever a hint of criticism crosses their filters, but we only have a First Amendment right not to be put in jail for our speech; we do not have a First Amendment "right" to get a cush job doing "journalism," nor does our First Amendment protect us from advertisers, activists, or customers. Professional self-pitiers won't hear any of that, but they don't get all the say around here.
Meanwhile, H.R. 1500, the Consumer First Act, would reverse the changes made to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (or CFPB) by former Acting Director/current Acting Chief of Staff/man who wears glasses so people don't punch him in the face Mick Mulvaney. H.R. 1500 would (among other things) bring back supervisory and enforcement powers for the CFPB's Office of Fair Lending and Equal Opportunity, would re-establish the student loan office that helped protect college students from being defrauded, and would ensure that the CFPB is properly-staffed, always a challenge when you're talking an Administration that believes not hiring enough people equals "small government." These are all common-sense restorative changes -- I mean, who thinks students shouldn't be protected from colleges that would prey upon them? Who thinks stripping a fair lending office of its power is a good idea? Only someone who thinks bosses are more important than anyone, and that's our President, right there. So CREDO helps you tell your Congressfolk to protect good Americans from financial predators by passing the Consumer First Act.
Finally, if you've missed previous opportunities to tell our Federal Trade Commission to break up Facebook, then Freedom from Big Tech still helps you do that. Why would we break up Facebook? Because it has a virtual monopoly of social media in America -- nope, using Messenger and Instagram and WhatsApp "instead" won't break that monopoly, because Facebook owns all three, and moving to another social media network won't work for you if your friends don't move there, too. Facebook has been known to be quite careless with your private information, and earlier this month, when Sen. Warren (D-MA) proposed breaking up Facebook in ads on Facebook, Facebook then blocked its users from seeing those ads -- and then reversed ground when Politico reported on it! The FTC is supposedly considering fining Facebook $1 billion over its privacy lapses, but that won't do any good, not when $1 billion is a few days' income for Facebook, and not when corporations still get to deduct fines from their taxes. If only our government remembered that breaking up big corporations for the public good is a fine, old tradition in America! Well, at least we're here to remind them.
