Jim Jordan shows how Trump would pressure private companies to do his bidding

The Ohio representative is trying to use a reporter’s layoff to undermine trust in the news media and offering a blueprint for a second Trump term.

 

Rep. Jim Jordan is showing Americans how Donald Trump would pressure private businesses, especially

 

in news and social media, to do his bidding if he wins a second term.

As chair of the House Oversight Committee, the Ohio Republican is attempting to coerce news outlets, social media platforms,

 

and advertisers into submitting to conservative demands — offering a blueprint for an even more aggressive push for control by an empowered Trump.

 

In his most recent attack, Jordan has gone on the offense against CBS News, the kind of mainstream media organization that

 

Trump loves to accuse of treating him unfairly simply by doing basic journalism.

 

Jordan has done so by seizing on CBS News’ decision to lay off reporter Catherine Herridge in February, scheduling a hearing for next week.
