Thank you Democrats, you just gave us Trumpers the ammo we need to shoot down the bogus lie that "Trump is attacking the free press."
FACT: Trump has not enacted any laws against the free press. He's attempted to ban specific "journalists" from the press gallery due to their reprehensible behavior, and he is suing CNN, but he is not passing or pushing any laws that even remotely touches the Free Press. Otherwise, the media journalists that have opposed the President would've been perp walked long ago.
Democrats and Left-Wing governments have habitually passed laws that cracks down on the Free Press. In the UK they have "Reporting Bans." In places like Venezuela, Cuba, China, and North Korea, the government controls the Press. And now, Democrat dominated California forges the first link in the chain to curtail the Free Press in the US. And I'm not even talking about the Left Wing controlled Silicon Valley tech monopolies deplatforming and banning news outlets and journalists they don't like. I'm talking actual government sponsored curtailing of the Free Press.
So thank you, Democrats for once again projecting your true nature to us. You once again have proven that you accuse your enemies of what you yourselves are guilty of doing. Another shining example of Leftist hypocrisy.
"Unionized Journalism", AKA the worst kind of Urinalism
This law perfectly illustrates why a "centrally planned" (aka Socialist) economy is a BAD idea. The idiots in government have no idea what they're doing.
They think if they pass a law with a specific goal in mind, the result of that law will be the result they intended. They don't understand market forces. They don't understand economies are dynamic. They don't understand unintended consequences.
Yes, give the economy to these people. They'll do for it what they did for free-lance writers in Kalifornia.
This falls alongside the $15 an Hour Minimum Wage, instead of bringing waves up to $15 an hour, it more often reduces wages down to Zero.
Someone put this law to the Courts. If this law isn't unconstitutional I wouldn't know what would be. But then again, this is California. That state sees all those elites in their ivory towers surrounded three-sixty by homeless serfs in tents and medieval diseases and claim that's a utopia.
These do-gooder Democrats can't understand that maybe, just maybe, someone wants to work freelance, so they can be their own boss and set their own hours.
Truth is, government bureaucrats don't like freelance or contract workers because they sometimes don't pay into welfare/pension schemes. Liberals wants everyone on the dole, to make you dependent on them.

if these companies and so-called journalists had actually been doing actual journalism instead of propaganda or gossip they might actually still be in business.
Isn't kotaku polygon and all the other regressive teck review sites in cali well this is gonna be fun.
Nothing works better than free market capitalism. We need to purge this communist cancer from government. And the RINO traitors as well.
Sounds like good news to me. All those retarded uranlists are fucked in shitty democrat run CA and inevitably more money leaving CA.
