The New York Times says that the First Amendment is a threat to Democracy. Oddly, it was published on January 6, which is a convenient coincidence. How fortuitous. Almost like the events of that very evening were planned.
Five days later, the Financial Times takes it a step further and demands that the media censor companies like Fox News:
the president’s supporters were using both mainstream and more niche platforms to plot further violence. That justifies moves by Apple, Google and Amazon to restrict access to Parler, the “alt-tech” Twitter alternative beloved of the radical right.
There is definitely a movement underway to squash free speech.

It would take some serious infiltration and encoding to use a TV network to broadcast plans to an audience. Imagine how you could write a script to include phrases that instruct a crowd what to do without being obvious and be able to change the script at the last minute to change instructions.
They’ve seen Red Dawn too many times, and haven’t watched Fox News since about 2010. Nobody comes on and says, “the chair is against the wall!” slowly, twice.
