So now the Toddler-in-Chief thinks that it is reasonable, rather than unthinkable, to stop TV stations from broadcasting if he doesn't like what they say? All stations should band together and denounce this. This is no longer "it's all about me and it's fake and it's mean boo-hoo". This is fascism.

Yes, while Steve Bannon says that criticizing the president is unpatriotic.

Same was in communism. Specific to any dictatorship, esp if the great leader has a personality cult. During Ceausescu's dictatorship we had only 2 hours of state TV per day, consisting in discourses by the great leader and propaganda.

Yes, most communist states have been fascist as well. The two are not opposites.
