Baltimore City Attorney, Subject of Federal Corruption Investigation, Demands the FCC Investigate/Punish Local TV Station for Criticizing Her

You may remember Marilyn Mosby from her stint cheering on Baltimore "space to destroy" rioters.

The Feds are investigating her and her connected

Less than a month after the news broke of the federal, criminal investigation into Baltimore City's top political couple, the timeline of the probe is coming into view thanks to new video obtained by FOX45 News from inside City Hall.

...

Meanwhile, the Mosby's attorney A. Scott Bolden, called the public attempt to serve Nick Mosby a subpoena "embarrassing." Bolden has often called the investigation in this clients' financial history, including taxes and campaign finance records, a political witch hunt.

Of course it is.

After a local TV station criticized Mosby, she demanded that the FCC force the TV station to stop reporting negative news about her.

Baltimore's chief prosecutor has asked the Federal Communications Commission to stop a local Fox News affiliate's negative coverage about her, claiming that the "tone of the coverage" violates FCC rules.

Inspector, I'd like to report a tone in progress.

The office of Marilyn Mosby, the Maryland State's Attorney (SA) for Baltimore, filed the formal complaint last week against "FCC-licensed station WBFF, a Baltimore City-based Fox News-affiliated network." The complaint asked acting FCC Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel and the rest of the commission "to enlist the full investigative and enforcement powers granted to you by the federal government to take action against the WBFF as soon as possible." Mosby is a Democrat, and WBFF is part of the conservative Sinclair Broadcast Group.

The FCC Commissioner Brandon Carr issued this statement about Mosby's attempt to pressure federal agencies to become her PR department:


Last week, the Office of the State's Attorney for Baltimore City, led by Democrat Marilyn Mosby, filed a "formal complaint" with the FCC asking the Commission "to enlist the full investigative and enforcement powers granted to you by the Federal government to take action against the [local broadcaster] WBFF as soon as possible" for "the tone" and "the frequency of" stories by WBFF journalists about State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby.

A federal grand jury has been investigating State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby for financial dealings, and the WBFF newsroom has run several investigative stories regarding possible corruption within the State's Attorney's Office.

FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr issued the following statement in response:

"The State's Attorney's Office, led by Democrat Marilyn Mosby, has launched a chilling and direct attack on free speech and journalistic freedom. The complaint her office filed with the FCC asks the Commission to censor a newsroom simply because journalists are doing their constitutionally protected jobs and shining a light on the work of the State's Attorney. Invoking the power of the state to silence journalists for unfavorable coverage strikes at the very heart of the First Amendment.

"It is particularly troubling that a public official would work to silence reporters that are investigating her work at a time when federal prosecutors have already opened a criminal investigation into her activities.

"Indeed, the day after the State's Attorney's Office filed its complaint with the FCC, the targeted newsroom was awarded four prestigious Regional Edward R. Murrow awards for journalism excellence, including for one of its stories covering the work of the State's Attorney's Office.

"The State's Attorney's Office complaint alleges that there is 'troubling, abhorrent, and outright dangerous' conduct going on here. They are correct in this respect--it is the conduct of the State's Attorney's Office that is troubling, abhorrent, and outright dangerous.

"Yet this complaint is part of a recent and troubling surge in efforts by Democrat officials to pressure the FCC and its regulated entities into censoring news coverage and political speech that Democrats don't like. The FCC should make clear that it will not operate as the DNC's speech police. That is why the FCC must dismiss this complaint with prejudice by the end of today. No journalists should have a complaint like this from their city's top prosecutor hanging over their newsroom."

NeverTrump will be issuing a statement in support of Mosby later today. They support all Democrat efforts to weaponize the government against conservative speakers, after all. (Because authoritarianism!)
